DALLAS, TX – February 5, 2008 – Designed for efficiency ratings up to 66% higher than U.S. government standards, the new Strategos™ rooftop unit product line from Lennox gives businesses an unprecedented level of control over their energy use to reduce operational costs and create successful strategies for sustainable design.

Strategos units were developed to improve the efficiency of a wide range of light commercial buildings with an innovative design that significantly reduces energy usage year ‘round. With efficiency ratings up to 16.1 SEER, 14.3 EER and 16.4 IPLV, Strategos units are rated dramatically higher than the most stringent requirements set by the U.S. Department of Energy and ASHRAE.

“There is no better option than Strategos rooftop units for light commercial building owners looking to upgrade to industry-leading efficiency,” said Larry Wei, Lennox Commercial Rooftop Unit Product Manager. “The Strategos rooftop unit product line’s high efficiency ratings translate into real dollar savings for our customers.”

New MSAV™ technology provides higher control over costs and comfort

Only Lennox’ Strategos units are available with the revolutionary new MSAV™ (multi-stage air volume) supply fan technology, which conserves energy during partial cooling operation while still meeting comfort requirements.

Providing just the right amount of conditioning for controlled energy use, the multi-stage air volume supply fan option offers up to seven levels of airflow. When there is a low demand for cooling and only one compressor is active, the unit will reduce airflow to save energy. As the cooling demand increases and the unit activates additional compressors, the system will increase airflow to provide more cooling capacity. Up to four airflow levels are available for cooling, with separate airflows provided for heating, ventilation and smoke detector mode.

An excellent green building option

Recognized by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers with an award in the green building category at the 2008 AHR Expo, Strategos units help customers meet green building design objectives and can aid in qualifying for LEED® credits under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design initiative. Available in capacities from 3 to 20 tons, Strategos units have been recognized by the EPA as ENERGY STAR® qualified, and they feature the environmentally friendlier, non-chlorine-containing R-410A refrigerant.

Preset and tested at the factory for quick and easy start-up, Strategos units also minimize installation and service costs. Airflow settings on MSAV™ units can be easily modified in the field to match an application’s specific needs. Strategos units feature the Integrated Modular Controller, which provides over 200 control parameters that are easily customized and more than 100 simple-to-read diagnostic codes to simplify troubleshooting and reduce maintenance expenses.

An excellent energy-management investment, Strategos rooftop units are designed to cut energy usage, cost less to operate than other systems and help businesses reduce their environmental impact.
