Carrier Expands Light Commercial WeatherMaker® Series Rooftops Up to 27.5 Tons

SYRACUSE, N.Y., United States
Providing even more solutions for the packaged rooftop market, Carrier expands its popular Light Commercial WeatherMaker® base efficiency rooftop line to now offer a 27.5-ton model. With an AHRI-certified rating of up to 10.4 EER, the new WeatherMaker® 48/50TC unit offers the most extensive features and benefits of the WeatherMaker line, including highly-efficient indoor fan motors, round tube plate fin coils and handled access doors. Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
“With the addition of the WeatherMaker 48/50TC 27.5-ton packaged rooftop, we now have two strong offerings at this size,” said Greg Alcorn, vice president, commercial sales and marketing, Carrier Residential and Commercial Systems. “The WeatherMaker 48/50TC is a great base efficiency option for the constant air volume segment, while the WeatherMaker 48/50A series remains highly effective for both constant volume and variable air volume applications with high static capacity and extensive factory installed options.”
The new WeatherMaker 48/50TC 27.5-ton unit utilizes scroll compressors and highly engineered round tube plate fin coils. The units also boast highly efficient indoor fan motors that meet the new Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA 2007), a government policy aimed at moving the United States toward greater energy independence and security.
“We specifically designed this unit to be a true 27.5-ton packaged rooftop unit rather than trying to adapt a larger unit to work at this size,” said Ted Cherubin, product marketing manager, Carrier Residential and Commercial Systems. “The result is a base efficiency unit with many of the same options that we are able to offer on our existing Weather Series rooftop lines.”
