Designed for ultra-quiet operation, the new electric air handlers in the Ultra Quiet Series offer air-handling capacities from 1.5 to 5 tons. The units feature three-speed, permanently lubricated PSC motors that are resilient-mounted for virtually vibration-free operation. They are multipositional for upflow, downflow, or horizontal left or right airflow with field-installed electric heat options up to 20kW. These air handlers are contained in a fully insulated, painted steel housing with 1-inch foil facing insulation. Enhancements made to these air handlers include mounting holes added to the cabinet to aid in horizontal conversions, replaced single bend front edges with double bend to add strength to the cabinet, and a plastic horizontal drain pan. Other improvements include revised EEC Series heat kits and AH heater boxes with relocated controls and smaller steel parts for an improved fit, extruded upflow drain pan fittings, and horizontal knockouts relocated off radius of front door panel.
