Every year, The ACHR NEWS introduces the latest heating equipment that is 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 to distinguish between brands.

Like last year, this year’s Heating Showcase is split into two parts — residential and commercial.

The residential/light commercial information is published in this issue, and the commercial equipment will be featured in the October 19 issue. Included in the coverage is feature-specific information about each individual product that was submitted by the manufacturers.

The showcase features the product grid, which includes technical facts such as unit tonnage, refrigerant type, efficiency rating, and cooling capacity. Select a product for 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 the product grid as well as in the product details. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided for each product.

The upward airflow carries the normal operating noise up and away from the living area. The rigid top panel effectively isolates noise. The isolator-mounted compressor and rippled fins of the outdoor coil muffle the normal fan motor and compressor operating sounds. The uniquely formed base pan also aids in sound attenuation with its structural design.

IAQ equipment supported: Pushing a lot of air and providing good airflow help cool and heat a home more quickly. This performance is also what allows the LX Series residential package equipment to overcome legacy ductwork layout challenges in older homes where some spaces don’t get enough air.

Thermostat compatibility: Compatible with most thermostats.

Replacement parts compatibility: Shares replacement parts with other models.

Additional features: This series provides a compact, robust residential all-in-one replacement HVAC system with proven reliability — including a heat exchanger design tested through extreme life-cycling tests exceeding 1 million cycles; a cabinet exterior subjected to 1,000-hour salt-spray tests; and accelerated, 15-year component testing. It also provides an easier-to-install solution for space-challenged homes where internal installation of conventional split systems is not an option, or where homeowners want to minimize in-house servicing or construction.

Warranty information: Standard warranty: 20-year heat exchanger; five-year compressor, coil, and parts; 30-day labor. Extended warranty with registration: lifetime heat exchanger; 10-year compressor, coil, and parts; 90-day labor.

Special installation requirements: No unique installation requirements.
