Single Packaged Gas/Electric Units 20 SEER 81% AFUE Multi-Stage Cool/2-Stage Heat

2 - 5 Ton Single-Phase Units

The iQ Drive® gas/electric package system features modulating compressor technology and variable speed indoor and outdoor fan motors. This system is controlled from a two stage cooling and heating thermostat. The system has the capability of adding up to 18% of additional cooling above the rated capacity. The system has dehumidification capabilities from thethermostat or duct mounted humidistat. These single packaged gas/electrics are ultra-high efficiency self-contained cooling units that can be installed on the roof or on a slab. The convertible unit design makes installations simple in all applications. Units are ETL and ETLc listed.

Standard Features

  • iQ Drive: inverter driven Samsung rotary compressor provides five capacities in modulating operation from a two stage thermostat
  • Interface control board: two digit LED provides system operation, status and diagnostic trouble shooting information. Utilizes a Nordyne-patented capacity control algorithm to select the optimum system capacity level. Internal controls monitor system operation to protect the inverter drive and compressor
  • Cooling operation temperature range of 50° to 125°F
  • Five minute restart time delay keeps the unit from restarting, eliminating the highest cause for compressor failure
  • EXV control: precise refrigerant superheat control provided by an electronic expansion valve
  • Suction accumulator protection from liquid flood back and future compressor failures
  • Compressor and component access is designed to make servicing easier for the contractor, hinge access panel is proved to all controls and the compressor
  • High efficiency with low sound levels: 20 SEER with sound ratings from 63 to 74 db depending upon the operating conditions. Engineered to significantly reduce unwanted noise with compressor sound blanket, variable speed condenser motor and swept-wind fan blade and discharge muffler.
  • High pressure switch protects against abnormally high system pressures. Auto-reset feature prevents nuisance service visits.
  • Low pressure switch protects against loss of system refrigerant charge
  • Liquid line filter dryer
  • Micro-Channel condenser coils: all aluminum coils that provide high corrosion resistance and increased heat transfer
  • Anteater copper tube (Luvata Uniguard) / aluminum fin indoor coils: indoor coils are designed to optimize heat transfer, and increase durability and reliability.
  • Wire guard coated with Earth-friendly epoxy and plastic mesh hail guard will never rust and protects the unit coil from being damaged
  • Designed using galvanized steel with a polyester urethane coat finish. The 950 hour salt spray finish resists corrosion 50% better than comparable units.
  • Heavy-gauge full perimeter base rails facilitate forklift handling and curb mounting
  • Convertible air delivery: horizontal or downflow to accommodate rooftop or horizontal applications
  • Corrosion-resistant drain pan quickly drains away evaporator condensate
  • One piece top for great fit and finish, total seal: well designed, quality construction. Drip edge on top panel whisks away rainwater. Embossed bottom pan keeps blower component compartment dry.
  • SmartLife® Control Board provides extended life to igniters using hot surface ignition technology. Programmed to learn the heat-up characteristics of the igniter, ten adapt the ignition time to the characteristics of the furnace so the igniter is energized appropriately.
  • Hot surface igniter: innovative application of an appliance type igniter with a 20 year history of reliability
  • Energy efficient variable speed ECM blower: advanced motor technology provides 16 fields selectable cooling and 8 for heating. Extra quiet and smooth blower on and off cycles, automatically adjusts to different static loads.
