One-piece heating and cooling units with low sound levels, easy installation, low maintenance, and dependable performance. Puron® Refrigerant is Carrier’s unique refrigerant designed to help protect the environment. Puron® is an HFC refrigerant which does not contain chlorine that can harm the ozone layer. Puron® refrigerant is in service in millions of systems proving highly reliable, environmentally sound performance.


Easy Installation

Factory-assembled package is a compact, fully self-contained, combination gas heating/electric cooling unit that is prewired, pre-piped, and pre-charged for minimum installation expense. These units are available in a variety of standard and optional heating/cooling size combinations with voltage options to meet residential and light commercial requirements. Units are lightweight and install easily on a rooftop or at ground level. The high tech composite base eliminates rust problems associated with ground level applications.

Innovative Unit Base Design

On the inside a high-tech composite material will not rust and incorporates a sloped drain pan which improves drainage and helps inhibit mold, algae and bacterial growth. On the outside metal base rails provide added stability as well as easier handling and rigging.

Convertible duct configuration

Unit is designed for use in either downflow or horizontal applications. Each unit is converted from horizontal to downflow and includes two horizontal duct covers. Downflow operation is provided in the field to allow vertical ductwork connections. The basepan seals on the bottom openings to ensure a positive seal in the vertical airflow mode.

Efficient operation

High-efficiency design offers SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios) of 15.0 to 16.0, 12.0 to 12.5 EER, and AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) ratings as high as 81%.

Energy-saving, direct spark ignition saves gas by operating only when the room thermostat calls for heating. Standard units are furnished with natural gas controls. A low-cost field installed kit for propane conversion is available for all units.

Low NOx units are designed for California installations and meet 40 ng/J NOx emissions. Can be installed in air quality management districts with a 40 ng/J NOx emissions requirement.

Durable, dependable components

Compressors have two stages of cooling and are designed for high efficiency. Each compressor is hermetically sealed against contamination to help promote longer life and dependable operation. Each compressor also has vibration isolation to provide quieter operation. All compressors have internal high pressure and overcurrent protection.

Monoport inshot burners produce precise air-to-gas mixture, which provides for clean and efficient combustion. The large monoport on the inshot (or injection type) burners seldom, if ever, requires cleaning. All gas furnace components are accessible in one compartment.

Turbo-tubular™ heat exchangers are constructed of aluminized steel for corrosion resistance and optimum heat transfer for improved efficiency. The tubular design permits hot gases to make multiple passes across the path of the supply air.
