Armstrong Air

Product line offers efficiency and utility savings comparable to variable-speed units without the cost.

West Columbia, SC (October 14, 2011) – Allied Air Enterprises, Inc. has announced the addition of high-efficiency constant torque furnaces to its line of quality heating and cooling products. As the fall and winter heating season arrives, this new product introduction will come as welcome news to dealers whose customers are demanding substantial energy savings at an affordable price point.

“Constant torque motor technology creates efficiency benefits comparable to those found in units with variable-speed ECM motors at a far more competitive price point,” said Scott MacMurdo, Allied Air heating product manager. “The biggest benefit from a consumer standpoint is year-round energy savings, since these new Allied Air products can increase overall cooling efficiency by up to two SEER points when applied as part of a complete system.”

Some homeowners may also enjoy additional savings through energy-efficiency rebates and other incentives offered by their local utility companies.

Along with affordability and energy cost savings, the constant torque motor technology offers quiet operation and improved airflow, even with less-than-optimum duct configurations. Available at either 95 or 80 percent AFUE, units from Armstrong Air® are available from distributors now.
