Once we got a taste of the future of HVAC, it was hard to think we could ever go back, but then the American companies took a step forward. Carrier was the first with the Greenspeed heat pump, however, it was more of a reverse engineered version of a Japanese heat pump and had (and still has) some serious flaws that has limited me from being able to sell it outside of new construction. Oh, did I mention I had one of the first Greenspeeds installed in my home? So when I say it has some flaws I know firsthand.
In this industry, something taking a year is like forever, so waiting was driving me crazy. But then it happened, the flood gates opened.
The newest is the our Barron 5-Stage Inverter, made for us by Coleman. Give it a listen in this walk-thru I did:
Love what you are hearing, but want something more exotic and kick-ass?
Enter the Dragon.
Mitsu Hyper Heat Full Retro
|MITSUBISHI DRAGONS BREATH (KIDDING)|
*Hyper Heat: Is proprietary design by Mitsubishi where compressor is allowed to rotate beyond normal design and self cooled by dripping a little bit of liquid gas onto compressor as it spins.
NOTE: The Daikin Skyair FTQ System is similar, but looses points due to the fact that it can only be installed in the upflow or horizontal configuration and is still using the light commercial non-wifi NAV Control.
Okay, so lets see, we have gone over the system that packs in the value, the one that is leading the charge….and now the game changer.
4-Zone DZK/FBQ Daikin Walkthru
This is the system I chose for my house and does things from a zoning standpoint that I have not seen from any of the standard zoning control options. But why it is the game changer is that it provides a list of advantages that are not available from any other system all in one package:
Custom Filtration (static allowing)
The other thing I LOVE is the auto change over. No matter what time of year it is, my son wants his room to 65 by bedtime. That means that around 8pm, my system shuts down heating and works his room in cooling for a bit, then goes back to heating the rest of the house. Try pulling that off with a ductless 5 head system
In summary, no better value in modulating ducted than mitsu, no better controls and all-arounds than Daikin.
Keep feeding your consumer side and email me questions.
