HIGHLIGHTS

Blueridge air handlers are the indoor portion of a split-system air conditioning or heat pump system (if you don’t have a furnace). Pair this air handler with an outdoor AC condenser to complete your cooling system, or with a heat pump for efficient heating and cooling. Add an optional backup electric heat strip to ensure optimal heat, no matter the outside temperature. The Blueridge BE5E contains the upgraded, high-efficiency, constant-torque motor with 5 selectable speeds for quieter performance. Compared to older motors, this blower uses 35% less energy, saving you money.

Valve (TXV)

A Thermostatic Expansion Valve (TXV) is a self-adjusting spray nozzle for the refrigerant in your evaporator coil. Based on the temperature of the refrigerant, the nozzle opening changes size, providing easier compressor starts and more efficient operation. A TXV is especially important in heat pump applications, where the refrigerant provides both heating and cooling.

Specifications

Configuration

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

Configuration
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).

Electric Heat Capabilities (Optional)
10 / 15 / 5 / 7.5 Kilowatts
Refrigerant

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.

Refrigerant
R-410A
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).

Maximum Overcurrent Protection (Breaker)

The maximum capacity breaker in the building's circuit panel that can be used on the dedicated electrical line supplying the equipment.
