American Standard: Residential Air Handler
The ForeFront™ air handler circulates air through an exclusive double-walled cabinet design that keeps unwanted insulation particles out of the conditioned air in the home while also eliminating thermal losses that result in condensation. The unit is flexible, offering four-way configuration with no conversion, and the entire product disassembles into four pieces in as little as two minutes, says the company. According to the manufacturer, the all-aluminum, 100 percent recyclable coil is substantially more durable than standard copper-and-aluminum coils, which are susceptible to formicary corrosion, ensuring families stay comfortable indoors all year long, no matter what the weather is like outside. With the Vortica™ blower, the air handler provides homeowners with reliable, ultraquiet operation. The double-walled, Air-Tite II™ metal cabinet eliminates the need for exposed insulation and helps prevent energy loss with the use of airtight plugs instead of conventional knockouts, reducing consumers’ carbon footprint and providing a cleaner environment, claims the company.
