INDOOR UNIT DETAILS
These Goodman condominium indoor units are typically installed on the wall in a small closet above the water heater. For quiet performance and greater comfort in both heating and cooling this air handler simply out-performs the competition.
An air handler is comprised of an evaporator coil and a blower, which circulates cooled or heated air throughout your home. The Goodman AWUF series air handlers are easy to install, and what's more, they provide years of quiet and dependable operation.
Efficient And Quiet Performance
The Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) sets the heating ventilation and air conditioning industry's standards for performance and efficiency. When you use the Goodman AWUF air handlers, you are getting ARI-certified performance, as well as quality, reliability, and comfort.
Standard Goodman air handler quality features include:
Goodman uses only high quality, long-lasting rifled copper tubing in their coil construction to withstand the rigors of typical use and to provide maximum heat transfer.
This durable tubing is mechanically bonded to enhanced rippled-edged and louvered fins, providing even heat transfer that's efficient and economical. Then, to ensure consistent performance, every coil is tested three times to detect leaks. And not just the obvious kind. Goodman tests for the smallest possible leaks, so small they may only surrender one ounce of refrigerant in ten years. It's this commitment to quality performance that separates the Goodman AWUF series air handler from the competition.
Improved air quality
The Goodman AWUF series air handler is not only among the most dependable made, but can significantly improve the air quality in your home. Goodman has created a specially-designed drain pan that provides for more complete condensation removal, preventing the build-up of mold and mildew within the system.
And, when you add one of our whole-house air cleaners to your system, you will experience a reduction in dust, pollen and other allergens throughout your entire home resulting in a cleaner, healthier, more comfortable home.
This air handler also includes a supplemental heating element up to 15KW for increased heating capacity. (When purchased as part of an optional electric heat system) Flexible installation
Indoor Air Handler Features and Benefits
The Goodman® 2006 AWUF Multi-Position Air Handler is suitable for use with refrigerants R-410A and R-22. This unit features a check flowrater expansion device and may be installed in a variety of locations.
The Earth-Friendly R-410a Refrigerant
Provides additional peace of mind because your new system won't harm the environment and meets the standards set by the federal government.
The cost of service will potentially be reduced in the future as older refrigerants (R-22) are gradually phased out through federally legislated production limitations .
Heat Pump Technology
A heat pump is a central air conditioning and highly efficient heating system that will “extract” heat from the air in the wintertime for cost effective heating comfort in all but the most severe winter climates. The system actually “reverse-cycles” in the heating mode and captures heat from outside and “pumps” it into your home. More...
Unlike a furnace it doesn't burn fuel to make heat. It simply uses electricity to move heat from one place to another. In the cooling mode, an air conditioner or heat pump simply capture heat from inside your home and transfer it outside. In heating, a heat pump actually reverse-cycles and captures heat from outside and moves it inside. This process is more efficient than electric heat as it is much less expensive to transfer existing heat than to actually generate it.
There is usable heat in the air down to about 0 degrees Fahrenheit. It feels cold to us because our skin temperature is 98.6 degrees. A heat pump's heating capacity is rated at 47 degrees ambient (outside) temperature. As the outside temperature drops the heat pumps capacity drops in a linear fashion relative to the outdoor temperature.
Most heat pumps will produce about half of their rated capacity at 12 degrees ambient. An electric heating element provides supplemental heat to assist the heat pump as it's capacity declines.The heat pump monitors both the outdoor temperature and inside supply air temperature and energizes the assist as needed, automatically.
Features, Features, and More Features
The Goodman newest GSZ series 13 seer heat pump condensers represent the latest generation design, packed with high technology features -- Like the Copeland Scroll compressor, absolutely the smoothest, quietest, most durable compressor ever developed. Because it has fewer moving parts, there is very little to wear out. In fact, over time this compressor actually “wears in” and becomes more efficient. Scroll Details
Additional Outstanding Features :
Earth Friendly R-410a refrigerant
The coil is a rifled, refrigeration-grade copper tube and aluminum fin construction for maximum durability and heat transfer.
All Goodman heat pump condensers are designed for ground level or rooftop mounting with bottom pan rails to elevate the unit away from moisture.
The maintenance-free condenser fan motor is totally enclosed and permanently lubricated. Plus, the built-in filter dryer removes potentially harmful moisture from the system, providing protection from contaminants.
Goodman doesn't cut corners on the cabinet either – it is constructed from heavy-gauge, zinc-clad G90 galvanized steel and is designed to help prevent damage from yard debris and the elements. The special polyester powder paint finish is “baked-on”, providing an extra measure of protection for years of long-lasting good looks. This construction design looks great in any architectural environment.
These high-quality components ensure that your new Goodman heat pump system will comfortably heat and cool your home for years to come.
Quiet Operation So You and Your Neighbors Can Rest easy
The last thing you want is to hear a noisy air conditioner starting up at night. Goodman understands and builds each unit to ensure that your system won't interfere with a good night's sleep.
Built-in sound deadening features include:
The result? Quiet and smooth operation that won't disturb you and your family.
Affordable and Efficient Performance
Don't be fooled by the affordable price tag – Goodman is a leader in home heating and cooling systems. In fact, Goodman is the second largest HVAC manufacturer in the world providing the longest and most comprehensive warranty's in the industry. .
Every single unit is run-tested before shipment and leak-tested three separate times during the manufacturing process to ensure a trouble-free installation.
Plus, to save costs at installation time the heat pump condenser is pre-charged with R-410a refrigerant for up to 15-20 feet of tubing.
The new Goodman GSZ series heat pumps offer affordable, reliable, and quiet operation you can count on year after year.
The Copeland Scroll Story
Once in a while, a new technology is developed that gains widespread acceptance through superior function and design. The Copeland Scroll Compressor has gained respect and industry-wide acceptance through time-tested field use and not from laboratory theory. The Copeland Scroll Compressor has proven itself to be the quietest and most dependable ever created.
The Copeland Scroll technology is based on the concept of compliance.Two scroll members interact to simultaneously achieve high efficiency and durability. This efficient twisting motion greatly reduces the numbers of parts that can fail while eliminating the inefficient up and down piston motion of ordinary compressors. This unique and patented approach. achieving both radial and axial compliance - provides important advantages:
Under the terms of all manufacturer's warranty and to comply with federal refrigerant handling laws, it is required that the system be checked, started up and signed-off on by a licensed air conditioning/heating contractor prior to use.
