The Blueridge BE5E Series of Air Handlers are designed for years of trouble-free, efficient operation.  The Multi-Speed EEP motor keeps air moving through the tightly sealed cabinet, delivering rock-solid performance and consistent cost savings.  Drain pans are carefully engineered to quickly remove moisture, and feature Micro-ban antibacterial agent that prevents odor-causing mold and bacteria.

Alpine offers Blueridge with the handy homeowner in mind.  You can accomplish the majority of the HVAC installation yourself and save thousands.  A licensed technician should be brought in for pressure testing, pulling vacuum and refrigerant charging.  Also, having a contractor perform the startup and final inspection validates the warranty.


Optional Heat Strips:
Electric strips installed inside the cabinet serve as an additional heat source and warm the cold air passing through the air handler.


Insulated Cabinet:
Extra-thick insulation and a tight seal along panels and doors help prevent the loss of conditioned air and ensure quiet operation. 


Internal Bracing:
Rigid bracing makes the entire cabinet stronger and stiffer. Double-hemmed sides also offer improved structural integrity.


Sleeved Distributor Tubes:
Protective wrapper prevents copper-to-copper contact that over time can lead to refrigerant leaks in your system.


Filter Rack Redesign:
The housing has been redesigned to keep the filter centered over the return opening to allow a better seal and help prevent air from bypassing the system.


Microban®-Protected Drain Pan with industry’s lowest water retention rate:
The drain pan is infused with an antibacterial agent to break down and destroy odor-causing mold and bacteria. The unique design of the pan allows extremely effective condensate removal. Because the coil sits above the pan, and not in it, the design reduces the chance of coil corrosion.

Configuration is the direction the conditioned air will pass through the unit.

Upflow units will have the air come in from the bottom and blow out the top.

Horizontal units will have the air go through the unit left to right, or right to left.

Downflow units will have the air come in from the top of the unit, and blow out the bottom.

Unsure of what configuration your home needs? Call us at 800-865-5931. Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5:00pm CST

Downflow / Horizontal / Upflow
Blower Cooling Capacity

The tonnage of air conditioning that can be moved effectively by the blower. You want to make sure that the blower is appropriately sized for the air conditioner. If it is too small the coil could ice up. If it is too large than the air coming out of the ducts won't be cold enough.

Blower Cooling Capacity
3 Tons
Electric Heat Capabilities (Optional)

One kilowatt equals 3,400 BTU's of heat (British Thermal Units).

Inside air conditioning systems are liquid/gas refrigerant. There are two types of this refrigerant available for use, R-22 (more commonly known as Freon), and a newer alternative R-410A.

An air conditioning system does not consume refrigerant, but reuses it. As long as there are no leaks in the refrigerant circuit, there is no need to ever add more refrigerant to an air conditioning system.

Although R-22 is an effective refrigerant, if it is released into the atmosphere it can contribute to the depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer. The EPA has mandated the phasing out the use of R-22. It is being replaced by R-410A.

As of 2010, manufacturers are required to make all new air conditioners with R-410A. However, R-22 is still available for sale in existing pre-2010-manufactured equipment, and for use in servicing existing R-22 equipment. By 2020, R-22 will no longer be manufactured, but will still be recycled and available for sale.

Blower Type

There are three main type of blowers: Multi-Speed, High-Efficiency Multi-Speed, and Variable Speed.

Standard Multi-Speed blowers have different speed options and you select the speed that the blower will operate at depending on the function it is performing (ex. different speeds for fan, AC, and heating functions).

High-Efficiency Multi-Speed blowers are designed to maintain a constant torque and in doing so will maintain air-flow and use less electricity.

Variable Speed blowers will adjust their speed during operation. The result is a blower that will run at lower speeds for longer periods of time (this improves the air flow and increases electrical efficiency).
