New Emerson 80 series thermostats launched

USA – White-Rodgers, part of the Emerson Climate Technologies business segment, have announced that they have recently introduced a new line of 80 Series thermostats in a drive to offer contractors easier choices for greater confidence and maximum comfort as thermostat options.


Commenting on the reason for launching the new series, Ed Blittschau, the vice president of marketing for White-Rodgers, stated that “Thermostat selection has become overwhelming. The market is overcrowded with choices, features and complexity. With our new 80 Series, Emerson is helping HVAC professionals see through the clutter and make the clear choice for comfort.”


Mr Blittschau continued, saying “We have been getting great feedback from the market on this new line and I hope professionals who are curious about our offering will check out our displays at wholesaler branches and visit our website for a free sample.”


Emerson’s 80 Series includes a streamlined set of thermostats with standard features that the company claim will cover every service call. These features include: easy installation and set-up with a built-in level indicator, pluggable terminals and a streamlined set-up menu; a large backlit display designed to be easily read; new options like keypad lockout, temperature limits and other professional grade features to come as standard on all models and the company claim to guarantee premium performance with certified accuracy to plus or minus one degree.


Emerson have revealed that they have designed the thermostat options in order to help HVAC professionals select the right application for each customer. The company proudly boast that their Sensi Wi-Fi Universal Thermostat offers control anytime, anywhere and is easily installed as no c-wire is required, while the standard universal model is also capable of controlling up to four stages of heating and two stages of cooling.


Emerson further claim that use of this thermostat may help to reduce inventory with a baseline model that provides staging, auto-changeover and the most advanced features in the industry. The company also declared that the heat pump model is preconfigured for heat pump systems, with logic-based algorithms to control staging – even dual fuel systems are managed automatically, without an outdoor sensor. In addition, the 80 Series will also include a conventional, single-stage model that includes the same updated design and large, bright display with the new advanced features.
