Technical support materials: Service manual, engineering data book, installation manual, submittal data sheets, parts lists, guide specs.

Noise-reduction features: Additional sound setback ability.

IAQ equipment supported: Provides improved IAQ with Flash Streamer technology, which is said to deliver over a 1,000 times faster purification vs. plasma-type systems. The multilayered air-purifying function decomposes and removes molecules of allergens and odors by colliding them with high-speed electrons as charged from the Flash Streamer unit. In the indoor unit, air is filtered out of dust and pollen and the photocatalytic air purification filter further decomposes odors. The technology allows breaking down of formaldehyde, viruses, molds, etc.

Thermostat compatibility: Controlled via an easy-to-read and -use handheld remote controller, which displays room humidity and temperature levels in all system operating modes and functions via push-button operation.

Replacement parts compatibility: Shares parts.

Additional features: This inverter split-system heat pump system can dehumidify room air to a user-defined relative humidity (rh%) set point and air-cleaning functions. It reduces indoor humidity by mixing dry, cool air with warm air to produce comfortable dry air. If the indoor temperature becomes too high, the system reduces the humidity level by also reducing the temperature (dry cooling). Users can set higher set point temperatures with a 50 percent humidity setpoint, realizing significant energy savings.

Warranty: Standard limited includes seven-year compressor, five year parts, one-year labor.

Special installation requirements: R-410A certification; factory training is standard. Manufacturer’s installation instructions. Service space and piping limitations must be followed as described in the engineering data book.
