Standard Features

  • Copeland Scroll Compressor: State of the art compressor is standard equipment.
  • Micro-Channel Coils: Both indoor and outdoor all aluminum coils are designed to optimize heat transfer, minimize size and cost, and increase durability and reliability.
  • Wire guard coated with earth friendly epoxy and plastic mesh hail guard: A guard that will never rust and protects the units coil from being damaged.
  • Easy Compressor and Control Access: Designed to make servicing easier for the contractor, access panels are provided to all controls and the compressor from the side of the unit. Easy access to the evaporator coil for cleaning and general maintenance.
  • Permanently Lubricated Condenser Motor: A heavy duty PSC motor for long lasting reliability and quiet operation. Requires no maintenance and is completely protected from rain and snow.
  • Thermostatic Expansion Valves: Factory installed externally equalized thermostatic expansion valves provides precise refrigerant control under varying load conditions.
  • Hi/Low Pressure Switches: Ensure long compressor life.
  • Externally Accessible, Service Ports: Quick access to refrigeration system
  • Liquid Line Filter Driers: Factory installed at a convenient location for service.
  • Quiet Operation and Low Vibration: Swept-wing fan blade combined with custom Venturi condenser fan.
  • 2-Stage Heat Operation: Featuring a 2 stage gas valve, 2 speed inducer motor, and 2 speed blower control.
  • Choice of Heating Control: Two stage thermostat or single stage heating thermostat with on the control board timing of a 10 minute delay for second stage of heat.
  • Tubular primary heat exchanger: Heavy gauge aluminized steel heat exchanger.
  • Stainless Steel secondary heat exchanger: Assures a long life.
  • 100% fired and tested: All units and each component are tested on the manufacturing line.
  • 30 second blower delay: At start-up assures a warm duct temperature at start-up. Adjustable blower off settings (60, 90, 120, and 180 seconds)
  • 30 second post purge: Increases life of heat exchanger.
  • Hot Surface igniter: Innovative application of an appliance type igniter with a 20 year history of reliability.
  • SmartLite™ Control Board: Provides extended life to igniters using hot surface ignition technology. Programmed to learn the heat-up characteristics of the igniter, then adapt the ignition time to the characteristics of the furnace so the igniter is energized appropriately.
  • LP Convertible: Simple burner orifice and regulator spring change for ease of convertibility.
  • Designed using Galvanized Steel: With a polyester urethane coat finish. The 950 hour salt spray finish is 1.5 mil thick and resists corrosion 50% better than comparable units.
