The watertight construction and corrosion-resistant finish will keep it looking like new for years. The paint treatment process ensures quality protection against the elements. A compact, low-profile design utilizes a louvered coil enclosure for protection against vandalism and hail damage.<CRLF><b>INDOOR AIR QUALITY </b>is designed into the unit. A sloped drain pan minimizes the amount of standing water inside the unit, which limits mold and mildew growth. The drain pan is made of a rust-proof material and will not deteriorate or release foreign matter into the airstream.<CRLF><b>LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT CONSTRUCTION </b>is ideal for manufactured housing and residential applications. This unit is one of the lightest, most compact packaged units ever designed. It’s light weight (230 lb. [104 kg]) for the 024 size) makes the unit easier to handle. The low height keeps ductwork connections to a minimum and makes units less visible. This unit utilizes a structural beam design to form the four sides of the cabinet. Only 12 different pieces of sheet metal are used in the unit construction to simplify the unit for greater reliability.<CRLF><b>EFFICIENT, DEPENDABLE PERFORMANCE </b>with durable compressors designed for efficiency. The unit offers up to 14.5 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) cooling performance efficiencies. This performance level can reduce cooling expenses by as much as 30% compared to older cooling equipment.<CRLF><b>DURABLE, DEPENDABLE, COMPRESSORS </b>are designed for high efficiency. Each compressor is hermetically sealed against contamination to help promote longer life and dependable operation. Vibration isolation provides quiet operation. Compressors have internal overcurrent protection.<CRLF><b>DIRECT-DRIVE MULTISPEED, BLOWER MOTOR </b>is standard on all models. It’s high efficiency design ensures high performance with most duct systems.<CRLF><b>DIRECT-DRIVE, PSC CONDENSER-FAN MOTORS </b>are designed to help reduce energy consumption and provide for cooling operation down to 40°F (4.4° C).<CRLF><b>REFRIGERANT SYSTEM </b>is designed to provide dependability. Liquid refrigerant filter driers are used to promote clean, unrestricted operation. Each unit leaves the factory with a full refrigerant charge. Refrigerant service connections make checking operating pressures easier.<CRLF><b>ACCESSORY ELECTRIC HEATERS </b>— A variety of accessory electric heaters are available.
