Manufacturers Show Off Equipment For Summer

April 14, 2014
Trans

Every year, The NEWS introduces the latest cooling equipment available for the upcoming summer season. The information is designed to help contractors prepare for this busy period by doing the research that will allow them to distinguish between brands.

Like last year, this year’s Cooling Showcase is split into two parts — commercial and residential. The commercial information will be published in the May 5 issue, while this issue will focus on the residential/light commercial side of the air conditioning industry. The coverage features specific information about each individual product, as submitted by the manufacturers.

Click here to see the product grid, which includes technical facts, such as unit tonnage, refrigerant type, efficiency rating, and cooling capacity. The in-depth feature below provides comprehensive information on each individual unit as well as technical support information from the manufacturer. Participating manufacturers provided all of the data included in the product grid and the editorial feature. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided with each product description.

Model: VFH42 InverterFlex® multi-zone ductless mini-split

Footprint (in inches): Outdoor unit: 40 (length) by 17 (width) by 43 (height)

Serviceability features: Service ports on outdoor units are located for easy accessibility. Indoor units display error codes to help with diagnosis and simplify service.

Technical support: Experienced technical advisors are available to answer questions about installation, operation, and service from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time, weekdays, at 517-787-2100. Sales representatives throughout the U.S. and Canada can also provide assistance. Contact information on sales reps can be found on the website under the Where to Buy link.

Technical support materials: Because indoor units can be mixed to best match load requirements, there are separate installation, operation, and maintenance manuals for the outdoor units, the high wall-mount indoor units, and the ceiling cassette units. These include wiring diagrams, troubleshooting charts, and operation of the remote control. Manuals are packed with units and can be viewed or downloaded from the website, or they can be emailed upon request. For convenience, a separate parts list for each size of indoor and outdoor model is available.

Noise-reduction features: Indoor units are designed for quiet operation with a high-tech fan for balanced airflow. The quiet mode can be selected to run the fan at the lowest possible speed while maintaining set point. Compressor sound is kept outside with condensing unit. With inverter technology, there is minimal vibration and operational sound from the compressor. Because there is no need for ductwork for either heating or cooling, the sound associated with moving air through a conventional duct system is eliminated.

IAQ equipment supported: Silver air filter releases silver ions that eliminate bacteria in the air while gold fin evaporator coating prevents the spreading of bacteria, as well as corrosion. With inverter technology, the unit runs constantly (although mostly in economy speed), removing excess moisture from the air and drawing air across the filter. Air filter can be removed and cleaned for reuse.

Thermostat compatibility: Manufacturer did not specify.

Replacement parts compatibility: Some shared parts and some unique parts.

Additional features: Two to five rooms can be conditioned with a single outdoor unit, and indoor units can be mixed and matched up to 150 percent of the total outdoor unit capacity (some limitations apply). With high wall mounts and ceiling cassettes in sizes from 9,000-24,000 Btuh, this amounts to 59 different combinations. Sensor on remote adjusts operation to maintain temperature. It features cooling, heating, dehumidification, sleep modes, and low ambient operation.

Warranty information: Limited express warranty covers the compressor for six years and other parts for two years from date of purchase by the original owner with product registration within 90 days of purchase. Some restrictions apply; see printed warranty on website for details. Also, AssurancePlus extended service agreements are available. Contact Comfort-Aire or a sales representative for details.

Special installation requirements: Line set length requirements between outdoor unit and indoor units must be carefully observed. Outdoor unit can be slab- or rooftop-mounted. Connecting cable between indoor units and outdoor unit must be specified by type. Wall-mount units should be installed as high up on the wall as possible with 6-inch top clearance allowed.
