Tappan iQ Drive® System – Home Comfort at its Best
Tappan iQ Drive® air conditioners, heat pumps and gas furnaces are the very best in home comfort. They use technology adapted from Asia, where living quarters are tight and noise is a social issue. Here’s how iQ Drive systems work:
Inverter-Rotary Technology – The air conditioner and heat pump contain an inverter, which converts the electrical current from AC to DC and, in doing so, can almost infinitely vary the compressor and fan speed motors. This technology is found in Asian mini-splits. Launched in 2006, iQ Drive is the first application of this technology for a typical North American residence.
Running Almost All the Time – iQ Drive systems are different from traditional systems in that they are almost always running at a low level. The outdoor units can modulate anywhere from 40 to 118 percent of capacity, instantly adjusting to offset the cooling demands on the home. Because the system doesnt cycle on and off, it saves a lot of energy and reduces sound levels. In fact, sound ratings are 59-72 decibels, the lowest available.
Exceptionally Quiet – Tappan iQ Drive air conditioners operate at the industry’s lowest sound levels – down to 59 decibels.
Innovative and Advanced – No other air conditioner operates like an iQ Drive. Its inverter-rotary technology constantly adjusts to exactly offset the cooling demands on the home. This unit modulates from 40% to 118% of capacity.
Dehumidification Mode – Because the Tappan iQ Drive runs longer at very low levels, it provides superior dehumidification for a more comfortable home.
Communicating Thermostat – This unit utilizes the iQ Drive controller to give you complete control over your indoor environment, including maintenance reminders, programmable comfort schedules and troubleshooting diagnostics.
