Developed through a partnership between industry leaders Mitsubishi Electric and Trane, the Intelli-Heat Coil System represents a major innovation in home HVAC technology. This system integrates variable-capacity heat pump heating and cooling with an electric coil for supplemental heating during colder weather. With its advanced self-optimizing controls and ability to customize comfort settings room-by-room with the addition of indoor zones, the Intelli-Heat System delivers superior energy efficiency, temperature consistency, air quality, and reliability compared to conventional furnaces.
For any homeowner seeking an HVAC upgrade that provides unparalleled comfort and performance all year long, the Intelli-Heat Coil System is an excellent choice worth considering.
Understanding the Intelli-Heat Coil System
Located in the Northern climate zone, Ohio experiences freezing cold winters along with mild winter days where temperatures can climb above 50 degrees. This makes our state a prime location to leverage improvements in heat pump technologies. Heat pump systems have come a long way in efficiency and performance due to innovations like variable-speed compressors. The cold, drafty heat of older heat pumps is a thing of the past. Today’s systems can better provide consistent, comfortable temperatures.
The Intelli-Heat System from Mitsubishi Electric and Trane (METUS) harnesses the best of both worlds by integrating heat pump and gas heating technologies. This hybrid heating source pairs an electric heat pump outdoor unit with a gas furnace indoor unit.
During milder days, the heat pump extracts heat from the external air and transfers it indoors to warm your home efficiently. When temperatures drop below a certain temperature threshold, the system automatically switches to the gas furnace for a boost in heating capacity and warmer air output. This seamless integration provides consistent comfort in Ohio’s variable climate while maximizing efficiency by utilizing the right technology for the conditions. The Intelli-Heat System delivers the best of both worlds.
Main Features of the Intelli-Heat Coil System
The Intelli-Heat System combines a variable-capacity outdoor heat pump unit with high-velocity ducted indoor units and an intelligent electric coil. It relies primarily on the energy-efficient heat pump cycle to extract or dump heat, providing heating and cooling. During colder weather, when the heat pump loses capacity, the electric Intelli-Heat coil provides supplemental heating as needed to maintain set temperatures. In addition the system can pair with one or more indoor wall mounted ductless systems for even more effective zoned conditioning.
Its main features include:
- Self-Optimizing Controls: The intuitive controls continuously monitor conditions and adjust operation for optimal efficiency and comfort.
- Variable-Speed Compressor: By modulating capacity, the compressor provides consistent temperatures while using the minimum energy required.
- Zoned Temperature Control: Multiple zones can have customized heating and cooling setpoints for personal comfort.
- MERV 13 Filtration: The high-performance filter captures allergens, pollutants, and particles for cleaner indoor air.
- Quiet Performance: With sound levels as low as 39 dB, the system maintains comfort without noise disturbances.
- Compact Design: The sleek outdoor unit has a small footprint that blends into the architecture of any home.
Benefits of the Intelli-Heat Coil System
With its advanced technology and optimized operation, the Intelli-Heat System delivers major benefits:
- Energy Savings: By reducing heating and cooling costs by up to 40% compared to lower efficiency systems, the Intelli-Heat provides significant energy savings.
- Customized Comfort: Intelligent zoning and self-optimizing controls maintain your preferred temperatures in every room.
- Enhanced Air Quality: The high-end MERV 13 filter removes up to 85% of particles for cleaner, healthier indoor air.
- Quiet Operation: With sound levels matching a library, the system won’t disturb you with operating noise.
- Attractive Aesthetic: The compact, neutral-colored outdoor unit blends nicely into any exterior space.
How the Intelli-Heat Coil System Works
The Intelli-Heat System relies primarily on the heat pump cycle to heat and cool your home. During heating, the outdoor unit extracts heat from the external air and transfers it indoors. In cooling mode, it pulls heat from the inside and dumps it outside.
However, heat pumps lose capacity when outdoor temperatures drop below freezing. To maintain set temperatures, the Intelli-Heat’s electric coil provides supplemental heating as needed. This provides a seamless transition between the heat pump and backup electric heat.
The intelligent controls optimize operation by engaging the coil only when required to meet demand. This minimizes reliance on energy-intensive electric heating for improved comfort and efficiency.
