Single-Packaged Products with Energy-Saving Features and Puron® refrigerant.
- 14.0 SEER / 11.5 EER
- ECM Motor-Standard
- Low Sound Levels
One-piece cooling unit with optional electric heater, low sound levels, easy installation, low maintenance, and dependable performance.
Puron is Carrier’s unique refrigerant designed to help protect the environment. Puron is an HFC refrigerant which does not contain chlorine that can harm the ozone layer. Puron refrigerant is in service in millions of systems proving highly reliable, environmentally sound performance.
Factory-assembled package is a compact, fully self-contained, electric cooling unit that is prewired, pre-piped, and pre-charged for minimum installation expense. These units are available in a variety of standard cooling sizes with voltage options to meet residential and light commercial requirements. Units are lightweight and install easily on a rooftop or at ground level. The high tech composite base eliminates rust problems associated with ground level applications.
Innovative Unit Base Design
On the inside a high-tech composite material will not rust and incorporates a sloped drain pan which improves drainage and helps inhibit mold, algae and bacterial growth. On the outside metal base rails provide added stability as well as easier handling and rigging.
Convertible duct configuration
Unit is designed for use in either downflow or horizontal applications. Each unit is converted from horizontal to downflow and includes horizontal duct covers. Downflow operation is provided in the field to allow vertical ductwork connections. The basepan seals on the bottom openings to ensure a positive seal in the vertical airflow mode.
Efficient operation High-efficiency design offers SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios) of 14.0.
Durable, dependable components
ECM Motor is standard on all models.
Direct-drive PSC (Permanent Split Capacitor) condenser-fan motors are designed to help reduce energy consumption and provide for cooing operation down to 40°F (4.4°C) outdoor temperature. Motormaster® II low ambient kit is available as a field-installed accessory.
Refrigerant system is designed to provide dependability. Liquid filter driers are used to promote clean, unrestricted operation. Each unit leaves the factory with a full refrigerant charge. Refrigerant service connections make checking operating pressures easier.
High Pressure Switch provide added reliability for the compressor.
Indoor and Outdoor coils are computer-designed for optimum heat transfer and efficiency. The indoor coil is fabricated from copper tube and aluminum fins and is located inside the unit for protection against damage. The outdoor coil is internally mounted
on the top tier of the unit.
Low sound ratings ensure a quiet indoor and outdoor environment with sound ratings as low as 73dBA.
Easy to service cabinets provide easy 3 panel accessibility to serviceable components during maintenance and installation. The basepan with integrated drain pan provides easy ground level installation with a mounting pad. A nesting feature ensures a
positive basepan to roof curb seal when the unit is roof mounted. A convenient 3/4-in. (19.05 mm) wide perimeter flange makes frame mounting on a rooftop easy.
Standard horizontal metal duct covers with insulation come with the unit and cover the horizontal duct openings. These can be left in place if the units are converted to downflow.
Cabinets are constructed of heavyduty, phosphated, zinc-coated prepainted steel capable of withstanding 500 hours in salt spray. Interior surfaces of the evaporator/heat exchanger compartment are insulated with cleanable semi-rigid insulation board, which keeps the conditioned air from being affected by the outdoor ambient temperature and provides improved indoor air quality. (Conforms to American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers No. 62P.) The sloped drain pan minimizes standing water in the drain. An external drain is provided.
