Jan 29, 2013

SYRACUSE, N.Y., United States

Carrier is expanding its Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) offerings to now include heat recovery models under the name Toshiba Carrier SHRM-i. This new generation of VRF units delivers innovative technology that optimizes and balances each component in the system to enhance reliability and efficiency. Toshiba Carrier SHRM-i VRF systems boast multiple inverter-driven compressors that are compatible with Puron® refrigerant (R-410A). Carrier, the world’s 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).

Toshiba Carrier SHRM-i three-pipe heat recovery VRF systems are ideal for applications that require simultaneous heating and cooling, maximizing efficiency by transferring energy from one indoor zone to another through refrigerant piping. The system achieves the greatest efficiency when heating and cooling loads are nearly equal. Advanced refrigerant management technology ensures precise temperature control that improves overall occupant comfort, reduces energy consumption and adds piping flexibility that can lead to reduced installation costs. “Working with Toshiba, we are pleased to expand our VRF offering in North America to provide heat recovery options for our customers,” stated Greg Alcorn, vice president, commercial sales and marketing, Carrier.  “The new VRF offering expands Carrier’s vast portfolio of products to meet customer’s specific needs.”
