LONG BEACH, Calif. — MovinCool®, a brand of DENSO Corporation, the world’s largest manufacturer of air conditioners, announced a new Climate ProTM 18 portable heat pump, which combines both cooling and heating capabilities in a single, self‑contained unit. The compact system is 13 percent smaller and 22 percent lighter than other comparable heat pumps, yet it offers significantly higher performance.

“MovinCool has the most comprehensive lineup of spot air conditioners on the market,” said David Keller, manager, Heat Management Department, DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc. “Now the Climate Pro 18 gives our customers the added choice of an all‑in‑one cooling and heating solution, designed with the high levels of MovinCool performance, quality and reliability they have come to trust.”

The Climate Pro 18’s cooling capacity of 14,600 Btu/h, heating capacity of 13,700 Btu/h and minimum operating temperature with plenum of 24 degrees Fahrenheit make this unit the best-performing system in its class.

A new controller features a larger LCD screen that displays diagnostics and step-by-step instructions to start, set up or restore operation. The system is fully compatible with most standard, off-the-shelf wireless thermostats.

As with other MovinCool portable systems, highest-quality manufacturing details include hermetically sealed refrigeration units and fan motors, to ensure long-term reliability. MovinCool’s industry-leading warranty covers parts and labor on the entire unit for three years.
