So, You’re Sold on Geothermal. Now’s the Time to Learn Which System Is Best for You


Trilogy 45 QE ClimateMaster

Published By: Joe Parsons

The heart of a geothermal system is the heat pump unit, and ClimateMaster’s Trilogy® 45 Q-Mode (QE) is the very best available, offering the highest certified efficiency in the industry. The Trilogy QE utilizes variable-speed technology for the compressor, fan, and integrated pump and incorporates an industry-exclusive year-round domestic water heating capability. This combination of features provides exceptional comfort and the lowest possible energy costs, making it one of the most attractive long-term investments you can make for your home.

While other premium geothermal units offer high-efficiency ratings for heating and cooling, only the Trilogy QE includes Q-Mode technology to provide full-time, year-round domestic hot water heating at over 500% efficiency. Also, the variable-speed components precisely match its capacity to the heating and cooling loads throughout the day and over the seasons, with the system only working as hard as it needs to at any time. For your installing and servicing contractor, the Trilogy QE uses iGate® technology to configure and diagnose the system through communicating controls and on-board sensors that monitor every critical aspect of system operation to ensure peak performance.

In addition to the the lowest operating costs of any HVAC and hot water system on the market today, the Trilogy QE offers you a truly luxurious experience by improving comfort with the quietest operation and most accurate temperature and humidity control available. 

But Why Is This Better for You?

Imagine you’re driving your car stop-and-go in the city day after day. Everyone knows how this hurts your fuel economy and creates more wear and tear than steady-speed, long-distance highway travel. Right now, you’re likely using a heating and cooling system that cycles its full capacity on and off at frequent intervals. And just like stop-and-go traffic, your system is using more energy and wearing out its components quicker. The Trilogy QE rarely cycles off, instead operating steadily at as low as 30% of its full capacity most of the time, resulting in more significant energy savings and longer component life. This idling along also provides a smooth ride for constant comfort; the Trilogy QE continuously and gently delivers conditioned and filtered air throughout your home for better temperature balance and air quality.

Perhaps there are rooms in your home that drift to significantly lower temperatures under high wind conditions during the winter or get overly warm as the sunlight moves to different windows over the day. There may be some rooms that are never really comfortable due to the thermostat located elsewhere. The Trilogy QE integrates with an optional ClimaZone zoning system to meet these common HVAC challenges. This system adds thermostats combined with motorized dampers in the ductwork to provide comfort to even small zones because the Trilogy QE’s variable capacity can ramp down to such low levels. It’s perfect indoor weather for your home every day, in every room, without adjusting thermostats or air vents seasonally.

Why Invest More Upfront in Lowering Your Long-Term Costs?

It’s quite simple. While it’s hard to put a price tag on the well-being created by the quiet operation and exceptional comfort, we can clearly define the value of the energy savings in dollars and cents. Because geothermal units tap renewable energy and are environmentally friendly, tax credits are awarded for these installations. Add the substantial utility cost savings, and the simple payback is usually met within the first third of a geothermal unit’s lifespan. And with the Trilogy QE, there are no hidden costs; it comes with full 10-year parts and labor warranty.

Please consider some detail on how you save money with the Trilogy QE. The system provides your home with precise heating, cooling, and hot water. The savings achieved with the variable speed compressor technology interacting with the earth have resulted in utility savings approaching 70% in many homes. You end up with the lowest energy consumption, lowest utility costs, and least environmental impact of any system available to provide heating, cooling, and hot water for your home. These benefits are realized while staying comfortable with “load matching” variable speed compressor technology, the centerpiece of the Trilogy.

This is made possible by combining the proven benefits of geothermal heating and cooling with the award-winning technology contained within the Trilogy 45, the outcome of a five-year collaboration between ClimateMaster and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) that was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Program. This is another significant milestone in the solid track record of leadership and innovation that ClimateMaster has demonstrated since its founding in 1957. 

Choosing ClimateMasters’ Trilogy QE Unit Is Like Stepping Into the Cloud!

The Trilogy QE unit was the first geothermal system to offer homeowners and installing dealers access, control, and even diagnostics over the internet through the iGate Connect Thermostat, a wifi-enabled communicating, programmable thermostat with a full-color LCD screen and an easy-to-use interface. Homeowners can monitor and control their Trilogy unit from the iGate Connect Thermostat or any web-enabled device. If allowed, their installing dealer can directly receive email alerts warning of potential issues with the unit. Dealers can also monitor and adjust the system remotely, allowing them to diagnose potential problems from their office, a convenience not offered by any other geothermal manufacturer.
