AC/Heat Pumps & Package Units
The principle behind geothermal heat pumps is in winter, they move the heat from the earth into your house. In the summer, they pull the heat from your home and discharge it into the ground.
Studies show that approximately 70 percent of the energy used in a geothermal heat pump system is renewable energy from the ground. The Earth’s constant temperature is what makes geothermal heat pumps one of the most efficient, comfortable, and quiet heating and cooling technologies available today.
While they may be more costly to install than regular heat pumps, they can produce markedly lower energy bills- 30 to 40% lower, according to estimates from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, who now includes geothermal heat pumps in the types of products rated in the EnergyStar® program.
Because they are mechanically simple and the outside parts of the system are below ground and protected from the weather, maintenance costs are often lower as well.
Allegiance® Air Conditioners
American Standard offers a full line of Allegiance® air conditioners, with efficiencies from 13 to 19+ SEER – among the highest in the industry. The higher the rating, the greater the efficiency, and the more you can save on your energy bills. Our Allegiance® family gives you a wide range of comfort choices, from our single-stage up to our two-compressor, highest efficiency model with its two-stage cooling and humidity control feature.
Notice the durable louvered panels that protect the outdoor coil and compressor. We use our special patented system to manufacture the outdoor coil system called Spine Fin Coils. It performs so well that it comes with a 10-year warranty, as do our compressors. Spine Fin coil is all aluminum (not copper and aluminum) which holds it efficiency over long periods of time and has more leading edge for better efficiency than other plate fin coils. This is a good way to spot high efficiency.
A package unit heats and/or cools just like an indoor/outdoor system—but comes in a single cabinet that can be installed outdoors at ground level or sometimes on your roof. Everything you want in one easy package.
