The Frigidaire FT4BI heat pump continues to be recognized as an industry leader – most recently by Consumers Digest. This up to 22-SEER modulating heat pump has been named a Consumers Digest Best Buy in the premium heat pump category.
This is not the first time that a product in the iQ Drive® line has been recognized for its high-efficiency performance and leading technology. In previous years, both the FS4BI air conditioner and FT4BI heat pump have been named Best Buys.
Consumers Digest writes that the FT4BI heat pump continues to be recognized as an industry leader due to its excellent consumer value and advanced comfort technology. The FT4BI “remains one of the most efficient series that [they] found that has an inverter-driven compressor, which modulates operation speeds in a way that allows the models that are in this series to use only the energy that’s required to heat your living space.”
Other heating and air conditioning units go through costly on-off cycles. The inverter-driven rotary compressor included in iQ Drive cooling units is able to modulate between 40% and 118% capacity – constantly making small adjustments and going through fewer on/off cycles. This helps increase efficiency and comfort, and reduce sound levels.
