    Wausau Window and Wall Systems
    Wausau’s S.E.A.L. (sound, energy, air, and light) window system installs as a retrofit on the interior of existing weather-tight commercial windows or curtainwalls to improve their thermal and acoustic performance. They have a thin profile to fit within existing frames and can be accessed for cleaning via a lockable side-hinged mechanism. A variety of glazing options are available, including laminated glass, polycarbonate, dual-glazed, low-e coatings, and security glazing. Performance of the window assemblies will vary depending on existing glazing and frame. Venetian blinds that sit between the existing window and S.E.A.L. system can also be specified. Wausau recommends a sample S.E.A.L. window be installed for a “seasonal cycle” to ensure that the system will perform as intended. S.E.A.L. comes with a limited 10-year warranty.

    Panasonic’s ECO-i VRF (variable refrigerant flow) systems provide ductless heating and cooling for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. The ECO-i is available in a variety of sizes, from providing 3 to over 26 tons heating/cooling depending on model and configuration. Larger units can be connected to as many as 40 indoor units, yet require a single refrigerant pipe network and only one building penetration. Redundancy is built into large, multiple-compressor configurations, so if one compressor fails the other will take over. Wireless and wired controllers are available to manage temperature, airflow, and systems diagnostics. The ECO-i uses non-ozone-depleting R-410a refrigerant.

    Panasonic’s ductless mini- and multi-split heating and air-conditioning units are made for residential and light commercial applications. The mini-split (or "single split") air conditioners come in wall, ceiling, or concealed-duct configurations, supplying 2.2–3.3 tons of cooling with a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) as high as 28.5 and HSPFs of 12.5. The company’s multi-split systems are available with cooling only or with a heat pump; both have inverter-controlled variable speed condensers that run between two and four air handlers. The cooling-only units supply up to 1.6 tons of cooling and the cooling/heating configurations supply up to approximately 2.5 tons of cooling/heating. All Panasonic split systems use non-ozone-depleting R-410a refrigerant.

    iQ Drive inverter-driven rotary compressor heat pumps are manufactured by Nordyne and sold by Westinghouse, as well as by Broan, Frigidaire, Maytag, Tappan, and Nu Tone. Common in split systems, Nordyne is the only manufacturer that offers this technology in packaged heat pumps. The iQ Drive inverter and compressor work in tandem to match refrigerant flow to heating and cooling loads, similar to fuel injection in a car, and adjust fan speed accordingly. These units can run at very low speeds continuously, eliminating the large energy demands from compressor start up while still providing dehumidification. Available in 2–5 ton capacities, iQ Drive heat pumps operate at up to 22 SEER cooling and 10 HSPF heating. They use R-410A refrigerant and come with a limited 10-year warranty.
