THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
The Package Dual Fuel Unit is a package heat pump with a gas furnace installed in the heat section instead of electric heat that a standard package heat pump features. This hybrid package system allows for both comfort and energy savings by utilizing the electric heat pump for warmth, except in colder periods, which is when the gas furnace would take over to assure maximum comfort and energy savings.
THE COPELAND SCROLL COMPRESSOR
All of our residential package units - regardless of efficiency level - feature the Copeland Compliant Scroll Compressor. The scroll compressors uses a more advanced technology than traditional reciprocating compressors. They have fewer moving parts, and they are quieter, more efficient, and longer lasting.
DURABLE CABINET WITH LOUVERED CONDENSER COMPARTMENT
Our cabinets have a powder painted finish that protects them from the harshest weather extremes and keeps them looking new for years. And our louvered condenser compartment is the best in the industry for protecting the condenser coil against yard hazards and weather extremes.
GRILLE/FAN MOTOR MOUNT
Our motor mount helps protect the fan motor from the elements for longer life. Its design also helps reduce vibration and noise.
Located inside the easily accessible furnace compartment is the control box, draft inducer motor, in-shot gas burners, the gas valve and manifold. Control box operational controls are "up front" for quick access and service diagnostics. The draft inducer motor is specially designed to quietly provide combustion air while simultaneously venting outdoors the combustion products from the furnace heat exchanger. In addition to the draft inducer motor, the in-shot gas burners, gas valve and manifold efficiently regulate the flow of gas for combustion. These new gas/electric units also feature direct-spark ignition and remote flame sensors for added reliability and efficiency.
MATCHED BLOWER/EVAPORATOR COIL UNIT
The blower is responsible for the flow of air into your ductwork. It has been designed to match the evaporator coil and other system components for maximum efficiency. In addition, the coil features rifled copper tubing and enhanced fins for improved efficiency.
TUBULAR HEAT EXCHANGER
Our new Package Dual Fuel Units feature a tubular stainless steel heat exchanger design. Tubular heat exchangers are more efficient and durable than older-style clamshell heat exchangers. The factory standard stainless steel heat exchanger is backed by a limited lifetime warranty in residential applications.
Exterior service fittings enable a serviceman to quickly determine unit operating conditions.
