Gold Series (AU-HV) Air Handlers
Completely redesigned for easier installation and improved performance, Gold Series air handlers incorporate many innovative features, including an optional Breathe Easy™ air purifier. A rust-free, anti-slosh, positive-flow drain pan quickly removes condensate water and a third drain hole can be employed to further increase rapid drainage. Each drain hole is reinforced and has an external stop to prevent over tightening of the screw-in hose barb.
To better accommodate a variety of installation situations, each drain hole can accept either a straight hose barb or a 90-degree hose barb. In addition, the vibration-isolation mounting hardware can be attached at a variety of locations around the perimeter of the drain pan.
Gold Series AU-HV air handlers feature high-velocity blowers, available in left- or right-oriented versions. Ultra-quiet “WhisperCool” DC blowers (AU-DC models) are available. The rotatable blower ring can be positioned easily by adjusting a single screw, and can even blow directly downward (best achieved with the right-oriented version).
The blower inlet adapter is made of a high-temperature resin to easily withstand the heat generated by the optional internal electric heating element. Gold Series air handlers provide easy access to the manual heater-overload safety switch, which is accessible without disassembling the unit.
Choose the integrated Breathe Easy air purifier option for cleaner, healthier air right from the blower. Positioned directly in the airstream, the award-winning Breathe Easy uses ultraviolet (UV) light and photocatalytic nano-mesh technology to improve air quality without producing any ozone. Independent testing proved that the Breathe Easy technology is up to 99.9% effective in eliminating odors, fumes, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold spores, bacteria and viruses.
