Humble, Texas – Aspen Manufacturing, LLC (Aspen), one of the largest independent manufacturers of evaporator coils and air handlers for the residential and multi-family residential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) marketplace in the United States and Canada, announces the release of two new high-efficiency air handlers designed for a gas furnace to heat pump transition installations.
Aspen’s LEM and LGM multi-position air handlers are now available in 14.5- and 17.5-inch-wide models. Both widths offer easy installation in space-constrained applications such as attics, closets, and other spaces where a wider air handler will not fit. The air handlers include a heavy-duty plastic drain pan, are optimized for heat pump applications, and the cabinet offers less than 2% leakage.
The new units are covered by Aspen’s 10-Year Limited Warranty with registration.
AHRI rated and meeting the requirements of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) 25C, Aspen’s LEM and LGM series feature an all-aluminum rifled tube and enhanced file design. The air handler coils are leak tested utilizing a state-of-the-art two-stage pressure decal technology. Further, they are manufactured using an automated quality control process to ensure extended reliability.
Aspen’s LEM series is available in a 230-volt electric heat configuration. The LGM series includes a 120-volt, no-heat configuration and is designed to directly replace 120-volt gas furnaces when upgrading to a heat pump. The LGM model does not require an electrical power supply upgrade, as other air handlers will when replacing gas furnaces. Both series offer the following shared features.
- Optimized for Heat Pump Installations
- AHRI Certifiable with most HVAC brands
- Electronic Control Board
- Rail Mounted Blower
- Fully Insulated, Galvanized Steel Cabinet
“Aspen air handlers and coils share a legacy of excellent reliability, operational performance, and outstanding quality,” said Jason Makowski, Vice President, Product Management at Aspen. “Our new models not only meet those conditions, but they offer enhanced installation flexibility not previously possible.”
