Heating/Cooling System Changes The Game;
Infinity heat pump w/Greenspeed Intelligence
uses up to 65% less energy
- 2014 July #5-6
A Greenspeed intelligence system can:
•Run low, slow and amazingly quiet.
•Adjust with precision to the heating and cooling demands of the home.
•Operate at longer, but lower and steadier capacities - for example, a
majority of the time the system can operate at only 40% capacity.
•Create incredible efficiencies.
•Make air filters, air purifiers, humidifiers and other indoor air quality
system enhancements even more effective.
‘Geothermal Efficiency Without the Loop Field’
June 10, 2014: You are probably aware of geothermal heating and cooling
systems and how, when properly designed and installed, they offer quiet,
efficient, and reliable comfort for your home or business.
However, the cost, drilling impacts and physical space required for the loop
field often present obstacles to making the system a viable option. Energy
costs are certainly not going down any time soon and a more efficient
heating and cooling system can dramatically reduce your energy use. What if
there was a system that could provide geothermal efficiency without the loop
That is where the new Carrier 25VNA Infinity series heat pump with
Greenspeed Intelligence comes in. This new system is the first of its kind.
No other ducted, air source heat pump can beat its heating efficiency of up
to 4.82 COP, which is equivalent to a ground loop geothermal system.
The system will especially save money on energy costs if you are using
propane for heating. “We have operation cost comparisons showing savings of
thousands per year versus using propane. In fact, we are currently looking
at a project that has a potential energy savings of over $8,000 per year
with a single system,” said Darryl Merkle, Territory Manager for Carrier
Here’s how it works:
Greenspeed Intelligence is created by pairing adaptable-speed technology
with Carrier’s Infinity control’s intelligence. The unique, variable-speed
compressor of this unit is managed by the Infinity control as part of a
complete Infinity system, which includes a variable-speed gas or electric
furnace. This complete system fluidly adapts its output to the needs of your
home or business.
With infinite adjustments between 40 and 100% capacity, it gives your home
or business only the amount of cooling or heating necessary. This allows the
system to operate longer at steadier, lower capacities, which ensures
incredible energy efficiency and quiet operation with tighter temperature
control than standard systems.
“This technology works well in cooling too,” explains Merkle. ”Our Summers
seem to be getting hotter, but our peak cooling is only for a few hours each
day. Here in Colorado, we have much cooler evenings, nights and mornings,
and the 25VNA will reduce speed to meet the lower cooling load during those
times,” he continued.
The 25VNA heat pump also has benefits from a utility perspective. The
variable-speed compressor allows it to ramp up or down with a soft start
rather than a huge surge, which puts less strain on utility transformers and
other power company infrastructure. When operating in low stage, a 3-ton
unit can be drawing as little as 8 amps. That’s up to 65% less than the full
amp draw of a standard air-conditioning unit.
But perhaps the biggest story is what it can do for your home comfort and
health. The system keeps your indoor air constantly circulating, which
reduces hot and cold spots and improves filtration.
Brooke, a Carrier Infinity system owner in Denver, tells this story: “When
we moved into our new home, we loved our beautiful black granite counter
tops. However, they showed all the dust and we found ourselves dusting them
off nearly every day. After we installed our new Carrier Infinity system
with a Carrier Air Purifier, we noticed that we were rarely dusting the
countertops and the allergy sufferers in our family were breathing easier.
Furthermore, our new Infinity system, which included the zoning option, was
extremely quiet and kept the temperature comfortable and consistent
throughout the home. The old system was loud, cycled on-and-off all day and
night, did not filter the air well, and created hot and cold spots
throughout the home. We couldn’t be happier.”
Outdoor sound and aesthetic impact is also important. Local codes or HOA’s
can include noise ordinances which can be hard to meet with most
air-conditioning units or heat pumps. The 25VNA features sound ratings as
low as 55dBA in low speed, which is lower than most codes or ordinances. It
is quiet enough to be located on small lots and even under bedroom windows.
Mike, an owner in Grand Junction, says that “when I am outside in my yard, I
can be standing right next to my Greenspeed unit and can barely hear it, but
I can hear my neighbors’ air-conditioning units coming on and off from far
The rugged cabinet is attractive and features a high-quality finish. It is
also designed to prevent small children from sticking their fingers through
the fan grille by passing the 3/8” rod test and, with its curved top,
reduces the likelihood of ice building up on top during winter or items
being set on top of the fan discharge.
To celebrate the introduction of the Carrier Infinity heat pump with
Greenspeed Intelligence, Carrier is including a Carrier steam humidifier or
Performance Air Purifier at no additional cost until August 31st. Be sure to
also take advantage of financing and available rebates. Your Carrier dealer
