We were looking to introduce to you all the new WaterFurnace 7 series later in the week but Forbes Magazine beat us to the punch. Tom Konrad, a writer for Forbes recently did up a feature article on variable speed geothemal systems. Currently, only WaterFurnace dealers can buy variable speed geothermal heat pumps because no other manufacturer has them available yet. And even when they do, WaterFurnace will still have the most efficient in the marketplace.
Tom Konrad points out in his article in Forbes Magazine that the WaterFurnace 7 series variable speed product line has an EER of up to 41 and a COP of up to 5.3 making it 37% more efficient than existing two speed geothermal technology available in cooling, and in heating it is 13% more efficient.*
The new 7 series is with its incredible efficiency and ground-breaking technology will bring new levels of comfort and savings to homeowners.
The 700A11’s InfiniSpeed™ variable capacity technology works in unison with a variable speed loop pump and variable speed blower motor to provide a level of comfort you need to experience to believe. The unit also provides the industry’s widest capacity range – from as low as 20% to as high as 130% – to keep homeowners comfortable over the widest scope of conditions.
In addition to the industry’s highest efficiencies and comfort, the 700A11 was made with contractors in mind. A dedicated front-facing communication port provides a high degree of setup/service without ever needing to open the unit, while Comfort Talk and plain English status updates on the thermostat make the 7 Series easy to diagnose. It boasts a bi-directional electronic expansion valve for the most precise refrigerant control available while exclusive features like SuperBoost™, IntelliZone2 capability, and energy monitoring, place the 7 Series at the top of its class.
