Homeowners Can Achieve Up to 40 Percent Energy Savings From Old Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps With Minimal Investment

Danfoss' Universal TR6 Thermostatic Expansion Valve Boosts Energy Efficiency of Older Home Comfort Systems

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - June 6, 2008) - As homeowners search for ways to combat increasing energy costs, Danfoss offers a solution that will save them up to 40% on their utility bills.

By improving the efficiency of their home comfort system with the installation of a TR6 thermostatic expansion valve, homeowners can save an estimated $150 per year on their utility bills. These savings will allow them to recoup their investment in less than two years.

The Danfoss valve automatically adjusts the amount of refrigerant in the air conditioner or heat pump. As a result, the unit runs less frequently, conserving energy and limiting wear and tear on the unit.

A Universal TR6 retrofit can be done as part of a normal preventive maintenance or service call. A contractor simply installs the valve on the unit's evaporator coil.

Homeowners should contact their local HVAC contractor to request a Danfoss Universal TR6 thermostatic expansion valve.

Rob Hennessy, Director of Sales, Danfoss Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, Baltimore, says, "Field studies show that a thermostatic expansion valve offers the most timely, most cost-efficient and least risky method to increase the energy efficiency of older residential air conditioners and heat pumps."
