Micro Facility Expands

April 10, 2006
HOUSTON - Texas Furnace LLC completed its 75,000-square-foot plant expansion in Houston. This expansion houses a new, state of the art micro-channel coil manufacturing facility.

The facility will produce high efficiency microchannel aluminum condenser coils to be used by Texas Furnace in a new line of 13 SEER split system air conditioners.

Texas Furnace, with its Spartan Series air conditioners, will be one of the first manufacturers to bring this rugged high-efficiency coil to the residential air conditioning market.

Pioneered by the automobile industry, and used successfully for over 50 years, this high efficiency coil allows for more air conditioning capacity in a smaller space. The 5-ton 13 SEER model is 28 inches tall and delivers 56,000 Btuh at ARI test conditions.

Some smaller tonnage models are no more than 16 inches in height. All models have a common footprint. Full air conditioner production is currently slated for this month.
