Preferred™ Series Gas Heat/Electric Cool Systems
One-piece heating and cooling units with low sound levels, easy installation, low maintenance, and dependable performance. Puron® Refrigerant is Bryant’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.
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.
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. In addition, dimples located on the heat exchanger walls force the hot gases to stay in close contact with the walls, improving heat transfer. Stainless steel heat exchanger available as factory installed option.
Multi-speed ECM Blower Motor is standard on all models.
High Efficiency 2-Speed Inducer Motor on single phase models.
Direct-drive PSC (Permanent Split Capacitor) condenser-fan motors are designed to help reduce energy consumption and provide for cooing operation down to 40°F (4.4°C) outdoor temperature. Motormaster® II low ambient kit is available as a
Thermostatic Expansion Valve - A hard shutoff, balance port TXV maintains a constant superheat at the evaporator exit (cooling cycle) resulting in higher overall system efficiency.
Refrigerant system is designed to provide dependability. Liquid 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.
High and Low Pressure Switches provide added reliability for the compressor.
Indoor and Outdoor coils are computer-designed for optimum heat transfer and efficiency. The indoor coil is fabricated from copper tube and aluminum fins and is located inside the unit for protection against damage. The outdoor coil is internally mounted on the top tier of the unit.
Low sound ratings ensure a quiet indoor and outdoor environment with sound ratings as low as 72dBA.
This unit has independent fan speeds for low stage cooling and high stage cooling. In addition, 208/230 VAC models have the
field-selectable capability to run an enhanced dehumidification (’DHUM’) speed on high stage cooling (as low as 320CFM per ton). Coupled with the improved dehumidification associated with low stage cooling, the DHUM speed allows for a complete dehumidification solution independent of cooling stage. 208/230 VAC models also have independent fan speeds for low stage gas heating and high stage gas heating. The dehumidification control must open the control circuit on humidity rise above the dehumidification set point.
• Reliable direct spark ignition system.
• Inducer motors with ball bearings.
• Low stage heating delivers 65% of high-stage capacity. (208/230 VAC models)
Easy to service cabinets provide easy 3-panel accessibility to serviceable components during maintenance and installation. The basepan with integrated drain pan provides easy ground level installation with mounting pad. A nesting feature ensures a positive basepan to roof curb seal when the unit is roof mounted. A convenient 3/4-in. (19.05 mm) wide perimeter flange makes frame mounting on a rooftop easy.
Standard horizontal metal duct covers with insulation come with the unit and cover the horizontal duct openings. These can be left in place if the units are converted to downflow.
Integrated Gas Control (IGC) board provides safe and efficient control of heating and simplifies trouble-shooting through its built-in diagnostic function.
Cabinets are constructed of heavyduty, phosphated, zinc-coated prepainted steel capable of withstanding 500 hours in salt spray. Interior surfaces of the evaporator/heat exchanger compartment are insulated with foil-faced insulation, which keeps the conditioned air from being affected by the outdoor ambient temperature and provides improved indoor air quality. (Conforms to American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers 62.2.) The sloped drain pan minimizes standing water in the drain. An external drain is provided.
Louvered grille provides hail and vandalism protection for the coil.
