Carrier Launches New VRF System with Smallest Industry Footprint

Carrier is pleased to announce the release of the new variable refrigerant flow (VRF) two-pipe heat pump and heat recovery systems line offering the most flexible, efficient and comprehensive portfolio of VRF products to our customers. Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The new two-pipe heat pump and heat recovery VRF systems line offers a modular design and the industry’s most compact 20-ton heat recovery unit, which will save valuable space.

“AHR Expo is the ideal venue for Carrier to introduce our latest VRF product and to reassert our position as the leader in this growing field of the heating and cooling industry,” says Meredith Emmerich, managing director, Carrier, Ductless & VRF. “Two years ago here at AHR Expo, we announced our expansion into this field and this year we are here to demonstrate that our focus remains on innovation and meeting customer’s exacting requirements.”

These new products will offer a tonnage range of up to 36 tons for heat pump systems, up to 28 tons on heat recovery systems, and multiple styles of indoor units with a variety of controls offerings.

The heat pump is a modular design available as single, dual and triple modules while the heat recovery system is a single-cabinet design with small, medium and large cabinet offerings. The systems are equipped with direct-drive, inverter-driven asymmetric scroll compressors with backup capability available on some models based on tonnage.

“Our 20-ton heat recovery system has a nearly 30-percent smaller footprint compared to the competition, which saves space and reduces structural design costs for our customers,” says Emmerich. “The VRF industry is an essential focus for Carrier and our latest product innovation is evidence of our commitment to growing the product line and providing our customers the products they need for today’s demanding building environments.”
