Goodman launching Emerson Copeland Scroll compressor
April 3, 2017 | By Michael Power
Goodman Manufacturing is launching Emerson’s new Copeland Scroll two-stage compressor in its new 16-18 SEER systems.
“Goodman is very excited to be the first to introduce the next generation Copeland Scroll two-stage compressor in our 16 and 18 SEER product line up. We think dealers and homeowners will like the enhanced comfort these two-stage systems deliver over fixed capacity systems at a refreshingly affordable price too,” said Lawrence M. Blackburn, EVP and president, Goodman Business Unit.
“As SEER ratings continue to push our industry to higher efficiency standards, homeowner expectations toward comfort are also rising. We are happy to be joining with Goodman to bring this affordable and efficient offering to the market. Goodman’s selection of our new Copeland Scroll two-stage compressors is a great testimony to the reliability, efficiency and affordability of this modulation technology,” said Brandy Powell, vice president and general manager, residential air conditioning for Emerson’s Commercial and Residential Solutions platform.
The next-gen Copeland Scroll technology modulates between two stages of capacity—either 65 or 100 percent. Two internal bypass ports enable the compressor to run at part-load capacity when outdoor temperatures require only part-load cooling. When temperatures, and thus demand increase, the bypass ports are sealed to shift capacity back to 100 percent. The result is a system able to control temperature and humidity.
Goodman products featuring the new compressor will be available in June.
