Portable heat pumps deliver HVAC for multifamily applications
A portable heat pump offers temporary HVAC for multi-family and commercial uses where flexibility and portability matter.
At the 2015 AHR Expo, Eddie Stevenson, marketing manager with DENSO Corporation's MovinCool line reviewed the new Climate Pro 18 portable heat pump.
The Climate Pro 18 combines cooling and heating capabilities in a single, self-contained unit. The compact system is 13 percent smaller and 22 percent lighter than other comparable heat pumps, yet it offers significantly higher performance.
“The Climate Pro 18 gives our customers the added choice of an all-in-one cooling and heating solution," Stevenson said.
The Climate Pro 18’s cooling capacity of 14,600 Btu/h, heating capacity of 13,700 Btu/h and minimum operating temperature with plenum of 24 degrees Fahrenheit make this unit the best-performing system in its class, Stevenson noted.
A new controller features a larger LCD screen that displays diagnostics and step-by-step instructions to start, set up or restore operation. The system is fully compatible with most standard, off-the-shelf wireless thermostats.
As with other MovinCool portable systems, manufacturing details include hermetically sealed refrigeration units and fan motors, to ensure long-term reliability. MovinCool’s warranty covers parts and labor on the entire unit for three years.
