[TULSA, OK, Oct. 10, 2023] — Responding to the building industry's growing call for sustainable solutions, AAON, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAON) (“AAON” or the “Company”), a leading provider of premier, configurable HVAC solutions, proudly announces its groundbreaking line of high-performance air-source heat pumps, AAON Alpha Class. Setting the standard for commercial and industrial air-source heat pump performance, AAON Alpha Class accelerates the adoption of cleaner, more efficient technology that drives the movement for decarbonization forward.
AAON Alpha Class air-source heat pumps are available from two to seventy tons and offer outstanding versatility and industry-leading features to meet growing environmental and regulatory needs. The Company’s premier HVAC solution is highly configurable and optimized for diverse environments with variable speed compressor technology, all-electric or dual-fuel options, Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS) capability, energy recovery, and low global warming potential refrigerant. AAON Alpha Class is engineered for higher efficiency and lower emissions, utilizing the same double-wall rigid polyurethane foam-injected panel construction AAON is known for, which retains useful heating and cooling energy within the building.
“We have a technology that we’ve put together that we can call the Alpha Class because it is an industry leader. It is a dominant factor — an Alpha — in the industry when it comes to heat pump performance. There is no real competitor for the Alpha Class,” said Stephen Wakefield, Chief Operating Officer of AAON, Inc.
Ushering in a new era of excellence, AAON Alpha Class air-source heat pumps can operate reliably at lower ambient temperatures than traditional heat pumps and with higher heating capacities over a wide range of operating conditions.
