Ingram’s Water & Air is a major proponent of geothermal heat pumps and that is especially apparent in the excellent 3 Ton 2 Stage Geothermal Heat Pump unit that they’re offering right now. This unit will provide year round heating and cooling, lower overall energy consumption, and typically save the average household money during the first month of operation.
Ingram’s 3 Ton 2 Stage Geothermal Heat Pump can achieve energy efficiencies far in excess of traditional air conditioners or gas furnaces. It does this by use of the painstakingly engineered Copeland Ultra Tech two-stage scroll compressor. Scroll compressors are ideal for air conditioner and heat pump operation, but for years were more prone to breakdown due to start-and-stop operation. This led to excess wear and tear. Now, a two-stage scroll compressor avoids these issues by running one stage of the scroll compressor at lessened capacity all of the time and augmenting it with the second stage when needed. This leads to a longer lasting compressor and a more energy efficient one; that’s the very definition of two birds with one stone.
The Copeland scroll compressor is not the only advantage this geothermal heat pump packs. Of course, it uses ozone-friendly R-410A refrigerant and exceeds ASHRAE 90.1. It is also designed for quiet operation by using a double isolation compressor mounting and a discharge muffler on every model. Meanwhile, the hot water generator is available to produce warm water for bathing and dishes while the cooling function is in effect. All that would be enough, but Ingram also wants to give you unlimited technical support 24-hours a day, available contractor assistance, and, if you want it, an extra 10 Year Warranty on labor.
