ACHRNEWS

Warming Up to Commercial Equipment

August 25, 2008


Every year The NEWS introduces the latest heating equipment available for the upcoming winter season. The intent is to help contractors prepare for this busy period by doing the research that will help them distinguish between brands.

Like last year, this year’s Heating Showcase is split into two parts: commercial and residential. The commercial information is published in this issue, and the residential/light commercial products will be featured in the Sept. 15 issue. The coverage includes feature-specific information about each individual product as submitted by the manufacturers.

The showcase product grid (see PDF link at the bottom of this article) includes technical facts, such as unit tonnage, refrigerant type, efficiency rating, and capacity. The following photo feature provides more in-depth information on the features of each individual unit and also includes technical support information from the manufacturer.

The manufacturers provided all of the data included in both the product grid and photo feature. Please direct any questions to them via the contact information provided below.

Thermostat compatibility: A selection of compatible thermostats provide optimum performance and features for most installations.

Replacement parts compatibility: Shares replacement parts with other models.

Additional features: This low-profile unit’s coil design includes grooved copper tubes and enhanced aluminum fin construction that improves heat transfer for efficiency and durability. All models share a common, compact cabinet in a single footprint and feature field-convertible duct connections.

Warranty information: Twenty-year heat exchanger, 10-year compressor, and five-year parts for a single-phase unit. Ten-year heat exchanger, five-year compressor, one-year parts for a three-phase unit.

Special installation requirements: Installation time and costs are reduced by easier power and control wiring connections. Utility connections can be made quickly with a minimum amount of field labor; a convertible airflow design allows maximum field flexibility and minimum inventory. The small base requires less space on the roof or ground.

Serviceability features: A large, single panel covering the electrical and gas controls makes servicing easier. The blower compartment has an additional large panel with a built-in handle that, when removed, allows the blower assembly to slide out for maintenance and troubleshooting.

Technical support: Manufacturer did not specify.

Tech support materials: A technical guide is available at www.upgnet.com or by request.

Noise-reduction features: Upward airflow carries the normal operating noise up and away from the living area. The rigid top panel isolates any motor sound, and the isolator-mounted compressor and rippled fins of the condenser coil muffle normal fan motor and compressor operating sounds. The formed base pan also aids by strategically placing embossments in the pan for optimum strength and rigidity.

IAQ equipment supported: The unit can be matched with York’s line of hybrid electronic air cleaners, media air cleaners, UV lights, and humidifiers.

Thermostat compatibility: A wide selection of compatible thermostats is available to provide optimum performance and features for most installations.

Replacement parts compatibility: Shares replacement parts with other models.

Additional features: This low-profile unit’s coil design includes grooved copper tubes and enhanced aluminum fin construction that improves heat transfer for efficiency and durability. All models share a common, compact cabinet in a single footprint, and feature field-convertible duct connections.

Warranty information: Twenty-year heat exchanger, 10-year compressor, and five-year parts for a single-phase unit; 10-year heat exchanger, five-year compressor, and one-year parts for a three-phase unit.

Special installation requirements: Installation time and costs are reduced by easier power and control wiring connections. Utility connections can be made quickly with a minimum amount of field labor, and a convertible airflow design allows maximum field flexibility and minimum inventory. The small base requires less space on the roof or ground.

eProduct 214

Model: Millennium single package rooftop units

Footprint (inches): 64 (h) by 240 (w) by 92 (d)

Serviceability features: Hinged and latched door options give access on both sides of the unit to all major components. Some doors have positive-action slide latches for greater ease of access. All service fittings are located to minimize time and effort.

Technical support: Manufacturer did not specify.

Tech support materials: A technical guide is available at www.upgnet.com or by request.

Noise-reduction features: Neoprene mounts provide vibration isolation and contribute to the unit’s quiet performance. One- and 2-inch isolation springs can provide even greater protection from supply air fan noise and vibration.

IAQ equipment supported: Unit gives designers the flexibility to meet various IAQ requirements with a full range of rigid and throwaway filters at different efficiency levels. In addition, the unit’s standard double-wall construction keeps microfibers out of the airstream.

Thermostat compatibility: A wide selection of compatible thermostats is available to provide optimum performance and features for any installation.

Replacement parts compatibility: Shares replacement parts with other models.

Additional features: Featuring industry-leading efficiency, the low-profile, flexible unit can fit any need, from cooling only and constant-volume applications to variable-air-volume systems with a variable-frequency drive. Its standard, double-wall construction provides maximum resistance to bacterial growth in the airstream and structural integrity.

Warranty information: Ten-year heat exchanger, one-year compressor and parts.

Special installation requirements: Installation is easier thanks to a complete offering of supply airflows and static pressure combinations, a single gas-electric connection (that may be brought up from the curb or through the side of the unit), a simpler control system and a rain hood that rotates into place.
