Lennox Industries Inc.’s Energence® 7.5- to 25-ton packaged rooftop unit product line “appears to be a good step up in rooftop units,” said one of the contractor judges.
According to the company, the product combines ultra-efficient performance with the intelligent Prodigy® control system to achieve a low total cost of ownership. Designed to help buildings qualify for LEED® points, the Energy Star® qualified Energence rooftop unit is rated up to 12.5 EER and 14.5 IEER. New Energence models with MSAV® supply fan technology allow units to lower airflow for a dramatic reduction of energy in multiple modes of operation — including part-load cooling, heating, ventilation, and free-cooling.
Energence units were designed to reduce start-up issues by up to 60 percent using the Prodigy control system’s guided setup and patent-pending SmartWire™ system. The guided setup walks the technician step by step through the critical parameters required for properly setting up a unit for operation. The SmartWire system has a wiring color scheme standardized across all Energence products, and features color-coded and keyed field connections to help prevent miswiring and simplify installation of field sensors or thermostats. Each connection is also labeled for faster troubleshooting and servicing. The intuitive, easy-to-use pushbutton navigation and display on the Prodigy unit controller provide a guided menu setup to reduce the complexity of start-up and commissioning of rooftop units.
"We feel very fortunate to be part of The Unified Group. A group of like-minded mechanical contractors that realize as we do, you are only as good as the service you provide. With literally thousands of years of combined experience within The Unified Group we have been able to benefit both in sharing best practices and also the relationships that have been formed and continue to be formed as we work together."
"Since we joined the group nine years ago, we have enjoyed continual updates with state of the art business practices, industry forecasts, vendor information, and personalized consultations by members of the group.
The recent Eastern Regional meeting was, for sure, a very informative and productive meeting. The format was fantastic and so was the generosity and camaraderie exhibited by the attendees. I must say, and it has been proven once again, The Unified Group has some of the nicest people and minds our business has to offer. John Canavan and I came away from the meeting with answers and a direction for the couple of concerns we had regarding CESCO. I can only hope we were able to give back to our fellow attendees, as much as we received. Thank you Julie, Tim Hartigan and Marty Rosica for the fine job all of you did in making the meeting a complete success.
