View Full Version : NextEnergy Tranquility T27
04-10-2009, 09:11 AM
We are installing a 6 ton unit within the next month to heat our 2400 sq ft bungalow located outside Ottawa, ON Canada. It gets pretty cold up here despite but our home is well built and insulated. The open-loop unit installed unit will have a cupronickel coax, 20kw backup, desuperheater and electrostatic filter.
My old unit was a WF, copper coax failed prematurely after 14.5 yrs probably due to gritty water. Does anyone have experience with the NextEnergy Tranquility units?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like another ClimateMaster branded unit; http://www.climatemaster.com/index/res_tranquility27_page

we have plenty experience with the climatemaster TT27 units. personally i do not recommend the open loop system as you will continually deal with mineral and acidity problems that you can avoid by doing a closed loop system. the only thing you gain by doing an open loop system is efficiency. this is my opinion.

I live the other side of Ottawa near Arnprior. Installed a T27 last fall. The instal has had multiple issues but the T27 itself seems admirable. BTW Next Energy is the Cdn distributor of ClimateMaster. What you have is a ClimateMaster unit. IMHO the installer is far more important than the HP manufacturer. Mine is a closed 'pond-loop' in the Mississippi River (for USA readers, no its not that Mississippi River). If you'd like to share more detailed local info send me an email.

I had a great install experience (again) - used the same guy who installed the original WF unit 15 yrs ago. The new unit has been in for almost 3 wks now - it is extremely quiet when running. The only thing I miss are the status lights the WF had. I will have the new unit flushed every 3-4 yrs to disslove any buildups or (choke) convert it to a closed loop. I deliberately oversized a bit to 6 tons to leave all options open. I felt that a closed loop with a 4 1/2 ton unit would have run too often on AUX heat.
Email me if you would like the name of my fairly busy insaller.
