Carrier is proud to announce the addition of the EnergyX factory integrated, energy recovery ventilator (ERV) option to the WeatherExpert 48/50N series of large, 75- to 150-ton rooftop units. Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, ventilating and air-conditioning solutions, is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Carrier’s EnergyX energy recovery system is a factory integrated and tested ERV that provides an AHRI 1060-certified rotary energy wheel. EnergyX holds and transfers energy from the exhaust airstream to improve energy savings and increase ventilation. Using building exhaust air as a heat source, it has been designed to pre-condition the outside air prior to entering the rooftop unit. The system provides latent and sensible energy exchange between the outside ventilation air and the building exhaust air. Compliant to ASHRAE Standard 90.1, this preconditioning of air allows for higher operating efficiencies, increased comfort control, and potential downsizing of the base rooftop unit while also meeting ASHRAE Standard 62.1 ventilation requirements.
EnergyX was previously available on 3- to 25-ton WeatherMaster® rooftop units. Adding the EnergyX option to any Carrier WeatherExpert 48/50N series rooftop unit can improve indoor air quality and decrease operating costs.
“Carrier recognizes customers’ desire for improved indoor air quality and energy savings, and this expansion represents our continued commitment to serve both needs,” said Greg Alcorn, vice president, commercial sales and marketing, Carrier. “Carrier will continue to innovate to provide our valued customers with the most reliable and efficient commercial heating and cooling products.”
