Performance™ Series Multipoise Fan Coil

  • California Prop 65


The FV4C is the premium air handler combining the proven technology of Payne® fan coils with environmentally balanced R-410A refrigerant. The FV4C achieves an operational advantage when the ECM (Electronically Commutated Motor) is combined with a Payne® heat pump with R-410A refrigerant.

With attention to quiet, efficient, and comfortable operation, Payne® has developed a new benchmark for superior indoor comfort and control.

Payne’s heat pump and air conditioning systems now feature R-410A refrigerant, the chlorine-free refrigerant that is the future for the residential heating and cooling industry. The FV4C using R-410A refrigerant maximizes performance for environmentally balanced systems. In addition to environmental safety, these systems are 30 to 40% more efficient than standard heating and cooling systems, thereby combining excellence in efficiency and environmental responsibility.

The FV4C provides these benefits due to Payne’s command of ECM technology. These motors are extremely efficient at all speeds, and enable the FV4C to operate at the correct speed to deliver airflow precisely, ensuring proper performance across a wide range of duct static pressures. This adaptive efficiency also makes installation quality easier to achieve for today’s demanding homeowner.

Payne’s command of ECM technology may be most evident in the comfort advantages that ECM can deliver. Operation set up steps on the Easy Select Board provide the installing technician with alternatives to maximize comfort and efficiency. For true indoor comfort, the homeowner can achieve command of both temperature and humidity in cooling and heating modes.

Another feature which sets the FV4C apart is the factory-installed TXV, which enhances efficiency and provides compressor protecting operation at all recommended conditions. Grooved tubing, louvered aluminum fins, and the large face areas of the FV4C refrigerant coils also provide superior efficiency, for high SEER and HSPF performance. Payne® leads the way in condensate control, a hallmark of these multipoise fan coils. All of these featured components are protected within a rugged, prepainted metal cabinet lined with super thick, high density insulation. For neat, high quality installations the unit exterior features sweat refrigerant connections for simple leak free performance, and multiple electrical entry for both high and low voltage service.

Assembled at the factory compliant with low leak requirements of less than 2% cabinet leakage rate at 0.5 inches W.C. and 1.4% cabinet leakage rate at 0.5 inches W.C. when tested in accordance with ASHRAE 193 standard.
