Nortek iQ Drive Air Conditioners Recognized by Consumers Digest


ST. LOUIS — Consumers Digest recognized iQ Drive models FS4BI and PSA4BI as a Best Buy in the premium air conditioning category. The FS4BI is available in the Broan, Frigidaire, NuTone, Tappan and Westinghouse brands, and the PSA4BI is available in the Maytag brand. Rated at up to 25.5 SEER, both models are manufactured by Nortek Global HVAC.

According to Consumers Digest, the FS4BI/PSA4BI "is a repeat Best Buy selection, because it still outshines its competition in terms of efficiency for the price. Only one central air conditioner that we found has a better SEER than this model does, and we found that you likely would have to pay at least $1,100 more for that model."

Since the launch in 2006, Nortek Global HVAC's line of iQ Drive heating and air conditioning products has been continually recognized for its ultra-high efficiency ratings and advanced technology. In addition to multiple Consumers Digest Best Buy designations, the iQ Drive line has received AHR Expo Innovation awards, Dealer Design Awards and a Comfortech Product Showcase Award.

In March 2015, Nortek Global HVAC expanded its line of inverter-driven products with a 20-SEER air conditioner. It works similarly to the FS4BI/PSA4BI in that it uses inverter technology to modulate from 49% to 118% of capacity — reducing noise, energy waste and temperature fluctuation in the home.
