Maytag says homeowners can depend on Maytag heating and air conditioning to continually produce air conditioning units that lead the industry in innovation. To back up the claim, Maytag sources have reported that the 24.5-SEER PSA4BI iQ Drive air conditioner was named a Consumers Digest "Best Buy." Air conditioning units that shine when it comes to consumer benefits are recognized with this prestigious, third-party distinction. This is a repeat award for the product. The Maytag PSA4BI was named a "Best Buy" in 2011/2012.
Very few models are recognized in their particular product category: On average, fewer than 3% of models in a category are recognized as a Consumers Digest Best Buy. The Maytag PSA4BI stands out from other air conditioning units because of its 24.5-SEER cooling efficiency and unprecedented sound levels. At 59 decibels, this unit has some of the lowest sounds levels in the entire HVAC industry.
Since the publication of the Consumers Digest article, the Maytag PSA4BI was re-rated to an even higher 25.5 SEER – becoming the highest cooling efficiency available in a central air conditioner.
The Maytag PSA4BI air conditioner is able to reach such high levels of efficiency because of its inverter-driven rotary compressor. This compressor is able to modulate its energy use between 40 and 118%, so that it only uses the right amount of energy to heat or cool a home. Additionally, the unit’s modulation capabilities make it possible for the unit to nearly always remain running – avoiding energy-consuming, on-off cycles.
In addition to the Consumers Digest Best Buy distinction, the Maytag PSA4BI iQ Drive air conditioner has been named one of the most efficient air conditioning units in the HVAC industry. This unit has received the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient designation for 2013.
