WaterFurnace International introduces the new 7 Series with OptiDryTM to provide the ideal comfort solution for locations that face high humidity levels. An optional feature for our industry leading 7 Series geothermal heating and cooling system, it includes integrated reheat coil dehumidification technology to provide a best-in-class alternative to whole-house dehumidification systems. It requires no additional equipment, ductwork, electrical circuits, wiring, or dehumidstat – making it easier for dealers to install and more aesthetically pleasing for homeowners.

The 7 Series with OptiDry replicates the capabilities of WaterFurnace equipment that has proven successful in commercial spaces for more than a decade. This patent-pending technology automatically switches between three modes – cooling only, cooling with dehumidification, and dehumidification only – to maintain comfort consistency at peak efficiency as weather and humidity levels change. It removes up to 2 times the amount of moisture compared to standard whole-house dehumidifiers, comes standard with a 10-year parts warranty and 5-year labor allowance for covered repairs, and offers numerous contractor and homeowner benefits through our Symphony Suite of Tools. Being a geothermal heat pump, it provides homeowners with significant monthly electric bill savings and qualifies for the 30% federal energy tax credit (plus possible state and local savings).

WaterFurnace International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of geothermal and water source heat pumps, introduces the 5 Series 504W11 hydronic geothermal heat pump, featuring WaterFurnace’s patent-pending OptiHeat vapor injection technology.

WFI-5-Series-504W11While most hydronic geothermal systems generate 130°F water, OptiHeat creates exiting water temperatures up to 150°F, thanks to an additional heat exchanger that diverts excess heat and reinjects it into the system. This provides increased heating capacities and greater efficiencies. This product is the first water to water heat pump for the North American market to feature vapor injection technology.

“OptiHeat was the result of strategic research and development, including customer feedback,” said Tim Litton, director of marketing communications, WaterFurnace International, Inc. “Combined with other innovative features, the 5 Series 504W11 offers consumers highly efficient heating capabilities in a very small footprint. It’s the most efficient, Energy Star rated water to water heat pump available on the market.”

Offering efficiencies up to 16.1 EER and 3.3 COP, the 5 Series 504W11 is ideal for high-temperature applications, such as baseboard radiator systems, underfloor radiant applications, overfloor radiant applications, and fan coils. The units can operate in heating-only or heating/cooling modes.

Copeland scroll compressors – double isolation mounted for quiet operation – combine with R410-A refrigerant and an extra heat exchanger to provide exceptional efficiency, reliability and energy savings.

WaterFurnace’s Aurora communicating controls platform provides simple setup, troubleshooting and diagnosis. Additionally, WaterFurnace’s Aurora Interface Diagnostic (AID) tool simplifies service and diagnostics for contractors, thanks to its external communication port that does not require opening the unit. IntelliStart, an optional soft starter, can reduce start-up amperage by up to 60 percent of normal draw, reduce noise, eliminate light flicker and increase compressor life.

The 5 Series 504W11’s cabinet is fabricated from heavy-gauge steel, while a professional-grade textured finish provides long-lasting protection. Control panels can be placed on either end, which allows piping to be located on the front or back and helps improve serviceability.
