WaterFurnace International, Inc. Key Developments

WaterFurnace International, Inc. Introduces Symphony Web-Enabled Home Comfort Platform

WaterFurnace International, Inc. introduced Symphony, a web-enabled home comfort platform designed for WaterFurnace's 3 Series, 5 Series and 7 Series geothermal heat pump systems. It provides detailed feedback in real-time and the tools to control it from any smartphone, tablet or computer. Symphony marries the Aurora controls of a WaterFurnace geothermal system with the WebLink router, giving users access to unit sensors, energy use and system information from practically anywhere. The system is cloud-based, so there's no software to install and provides control over the entire geothermal system - not just the temperature found in other 'smart thermostat' systems. The personalized dashboard provides quick access to system settings, operational status and history, alert history, energy usage, zone temperatures and local weather. An internet-enabled thermostat allows homeowners to change temperature, set a schedule, monitor vacation mode, and more on an available app with a smartphone or tablet. Those with WaterFurnace's IntelliZone2 zoning system can remotely control temperatures and programs in up to six zones. The platform also allows homeowners to track their system's energy use over the prior 13 months, including detail on equipment staging, heating time, cooling time and fan use. WaterFurnace is the only geothermal manufacturer to offer its own zoning solution, and the only ones with online control. Symphony can provide equipment alerts and service reminders via email, text message, and in-app notifications to not only the homeowner but also dealers/contractors. A service technician can log into a homeowner's system to view faults, operating conditions and sensor readings - all without having to visit the home. If a service call is needed, the contractor can begin working on the solution immediately - saving the homeowner valuable time.

WaterFurnace Introduces Envision2 NXW Chiller

WaterFurnace International, Inc., has introduced the new Envision2 NXW Chiller, providing water heating and water cooling for a wide range of applications. Available in 10 to 50-ton capacities, the NXW will fit through most doors and features external fork truck lifting points for easy installation. Designed to perform to the higher standards in the industry, the NXW is used for pools, commercial aquariums, radiant floor heating, ice melt, chilled water applications, industrial process water, or to provide precisely heated or cooled water for fan coils or other applications. The NXW is equipped with a new and improved control box providing clean wiring and easy accessibility. The control box includes an emergency shutdown button and a user interface to aid in setup and diagnostics. The refrigeration circuit has also been updated with suction and discharge line vibration absorbers and larger, more efficient heat exchangers. Additional features of the Envision2 NXW Chiller include: Forklift cutouts in base of frame accessible without removing an access panel; Class J fuses for short circuit current rating (SCCR) up to 100 kA; Temperature sensor wells for accurate water temperature sensing; Copper-brazed, oversized stainless steel heat exchangers for high efficiency and low water side pressure drop; Bidirectional liquid line filter driers to maximize system cleanliness; Optional temperature set point control software to control leaving load temperature; Optional factory-installed pressure gauges. In addition, the NXW is controlled using FX10 microprocessor controls, enabling an easy connection to a Building Automation System with N2 Open, BACnet, or LonWorks protocols.

WaterFurnace International, Inc. Announces Upgrades to 5 Series Indoor and Outdoor Splits and Synergy3D

WaterFurnace International, Inc. announced upgrades to its 5 Series 500R11 indoor splits, 5 Series 500RO11 outdoor splits and the Synergy3D. Both the 5 Series indoor and outdoor splits now carry the WaterFurnace Aurora family of controls. The Aurora Base Control (ABC) features a microprocessor control to sequence all components during operation for optimum performance. In addition, the ABC provides easy-to-use troubleshooting features, including fault lights, onboard diagnostics and a handheld Aurora Interface Diagnostic (AID) tool. Upgraded cabinets for the 5 Series and Synergy3D units feature new paint and texture for an aesthetically pleasing look that is carried over from the 5 Series and 7 Series family of units. The heavy gauge galvanized sheet metal cabinets also feature a salt spray rating of 1,000 hours for long-lasting protection. In addition to the cabinet upgrade, changes to the Synergy3D include the relocation of LED status lights to the left corner post and new sweat desuperheater connections for the convenience of the contractor. The 5 Series 500RO11 outdoor splits are designed for outdoor installations and are connected to an indoor air handler via refrigerant lines and control wiring. Introduced last October, the 5 Series 500R11 indoor splits are engineered for indoor use where an all-in-one unit would be difficult to install, like attics or crawl spaces, and offer an attractive solution for retrofitting existing homes. Both the indoor and outdoor units are ENERGY STAR® rated and feature an energy efficiency ratio (EER) of 25.3 and a coefficient of performance (COP) of 4.4.
