RedLINK to the Rescue

Modern technology is improving how we interact in our everyday lives. One way is how we can respond to potentially dangerous situations, which was the case for homeowners Henry and Helen Roy.

April 28_RedLINK Testimonial ImageThe Roys live in Palmer, Massachusetts, where temperatures can get as low as minus 21 degrees Fahrenheit. Henry Roy lost his hearing and suffers from chronic health issues. Late last fall, the Roys lost power and, subsequently, all forms of communication to the outside world. No power meant no heat, which posed a potentially life-threatening situation for the couple.

Thankfully, the Roys had opted to connect their M-Series system to the Honeywell RedLINK Internet Gateway (RedLINK), which offers remote control for the HVAC system using any Internet-enabled smart device. In addition to turning the system on or off and adjusting the temperature, users can receive automatic system alerts – which was particularly crucial in the Roys’ case. When the Roys’ lost power, the couple’s grandson received an email alert informing him of the situation. He called the power company immediately and was able to get his grandparents’ power turned back on. The HVAC system was then back up and running. Thanks to RedLINK, the Roys were kept safe and sound.

“It’s comforting to know our Mitsubishi [Electric] systems are able to let our family know if anything goes wrong at our house,” says Helen Roy.

Project Profile: Century Bank & Trust


Century Bank & Trust (Century Bank), Milledgeville, Georgia, opened in 1898. The 24,000-square-foot, three-level building was renovated 25 years ago but the HVAC system proved to be inefficient and costly. In 2012, Century Bank was determined to find a solution to improve employee and customer comfort without interrupting business.

Brian Robinson, vice president of Century Bank, called in Milledgeville’s Air Conditioning Specialist, Inc. (ACS) to recommend the new system. ACS gathered data on the building’s energy use to predict future energy consumptions using various technologies, including Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF). ACS predicted cost savings using our R2-Series VRF zoning system. The predictions looked promising. Robinson called in a second and third company to conduct studies and confirm the impressive projected savings.

It was easy for Century Bank to conclude that our technology would fulfill every need and it did. Installation was completed within one month with minimal impact. Since the installation only took place at night, the bank remained open during business hours without any interruption. The zoning feature gives each employee personalized comfort control year-round. Best of all, Century Bank saw a monthly average of 56 percent energy savings within the first year.

Efficiency: It’s All In the Installation

February 3_NIST Quality HVAC Report ImageA recent National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report proves that HVAC equipment requires a quality installation (QI) in order to perform at its rated efficiency. The report, “Sensitivity Analysis of Installation Faults on Heat Pump Performance,” shows design and installation deficiencies contribute directly to a rise in energy consumption.

The report is based on a three-year study that focused on how the building, equipment and climate affect HVAC performance. The following installation faults were found to have the largest potential impact on efficiency:

  • Duct leakage
  • Low indoor airflow
  • Refrigerant undercharge or overcharge
  • Oversized equipment with undersized ductwork
  • If two or more simultaneous faults occur, the loss of efficiency and amount of energy consumption risk amplification

A QI requires high-efficiency products, correct design, proper installation and accurate field measurements. To help ensure these components are met, the ANSI/ACCA 5 QI Standard specifies what to measure, how to measure and the measurement tolerances necessary for unitary residential and commercial HVAC systems.

We recognized that a successful, sustainable installation not only requires a high-performing product but top-notch service as well, which is why we created the Diamond Dealer™ program more than 10 years ago. This elite group is the most extensive, highly-qualified contractor network in the industry today. Through demanding certification and continuous education, our Diamond Contractors™ ensure that our energy-efficient products perform at their industry-leading efficiencies.

Join Us at the 2015 International Builders’ Show!

January 15The world’s largest residential and light construction building event is right around the corner – and one you won’t want to miss! More than 75,000 building enthusiasts and 2,000 exhibitors are expected to be in Las Vegas next week, January 20-22, for the 2015 International Builders’ Show (IBS).

IBS is known for having the most in-depth and up-to-date education programs in the industry each year – and 2015 is no exception. More than 100 educational sessions, presented by renowned building professionals from across the country, will be available, covering everything from high performance building techniques and materials to effective sales and financing strategies. The National Association of Home Builders’ annual idea house, The New American Home (TNAH), will be open to showcase the latest design and technology in the home building industry. Unlike previous TNAHs that focused on creating a one-of-a-kind custom home, this year’s home will demonstrate how cutting-edge products and technology can be integrated into a state-of-the-art community.

We’ll be on the exhibition floor (booth #C8910), where we’ll unveil our latest controls program. Booth visitors will also have the opportunity to learn about two of our newest product offerings that have raised the industry bar for ductless technology:

  • The Hyper-Heating INVERTER™ (H2i®) MXZ multi-zone outdoor unit is the first residential multi-zone heat pump technology for use in extreme cold climates. This system is ideal for whole-home cooling and heating in areas of the country where ductless was previously considered ineffective. The H2i MXZ has received industry recognition already after taking the top spot in the Heating category of the 2015 AHR Expo Innovation Awards.

  • The H2i MSZ-FH single-zone outdoor unit is the most energy-efficient ductless system on the market at 30.5 SEER. The H2i MSZ-FH operates at 100 percent heating capacity at 5 degrees Fahrenheit and continues providing efficient heating down to minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit, giving it the lowest ambient performance at the highest SEER rating in the industry. While it was previously thought that cold climates and heat pump performance couldn’t go hand-in-hand, this system offers year-round comfort anywhere in the country.

With so much in store, be sure to stop by booth #C8910!
