Carrier 15 Ton High Efficiency Gas Heat/Electric Cooling Packaged Rooftop Unit

Features and Benefits

  • Single–stage cooling capacity control on 04 to 07 models, 2–stage cooling capacity control on 08 to 14 models
  • SEER up to 15.6, EER up to 13.0
  • IEERs up to 13.0 with single speed indoor fan motor, and up to 14.3 with SAVt (Staged Air Volume) 2–speed/VFD indoor fan motor system
  • Exclusive non–corrosive composite condensate pan in accordance with ASHRAE 62 Standard, sloping design; side or center drain
  • Gas efficiencies up to 82%
  • Induced draft combustion design
  • Redundant gas valve, with up to 2 stages of heating
  • Pre–painted exterior panels and primer–coated interior panels tested to 500 hours salt spray protection
  • TXV refrigerant metering system on each circuit
  • Fully insulated cabinet
  • Exclusive IGC solid–state control for on–board diagnostics with LED error code designation, burner control logic and energy saving indoor fan motor delay
  • Dedicated 3–5 ton Low NOx models available that meet California Air Quality Management NOx requirement of 40 nangram/joule or less. Low NOx models include stainless steel heat exchangers
  • Cooling operating range up to 125_F (52_C), and down to 35_F (2_C), 0_F (–18_C) on 11 size standard
  • Access panels with easy grip handles
  • Innovative , easy starting, no–strip screw feature on unit access panels
  • Two–inch disposable return air filters
  • Tool–less filter access door
  • Belt drive evaporator–fan motor and pulley combinations available on all three phase models
  • Electric Drive X13 (5 speed/torque) motor on 04 to 06 models
  • New terminal board facilitating simple safety circuit troubleshooting and simplified control box arrangement
  • Field Convertible airflow (3–12.5 ton). Being able to convert a unit from vertical airflow to horizontal makes it easy to overcome job site complications. 12.5 ton models require a simple supply air duct cover to field convert from factory vertical to horizontal.

  • Single point gas and electric connections
  • Full perimeter base rail with built–in rigging adapters and fork truck slots
  • Scroll compressors with internal line–break overload protection
  • 24–volt control circuit protected with resettable circuit breaker
  • Permanently lubricated evaporator–fan motor
  • Totally enclosed condenser motors with permanently lubricated bearings
  • Low Pressure switch and high–pressure switch protection
  • Exclusive IGC anti–cycle protection for gas heat operation
  • Solid–state electronic direct spark ignition system
  • Flame roll–out safety protector
  • Liquid line filter drier on each circuit
  • Factory–installed Humidi–MiZerr Adaptive Dehumidification System on all sizes, includes MotorMaster I controller.
  • Standard Warranty: 10 yr. aluminized heat exchanger, 15 yr. stainless steel heat exchanger, 5 yr. compressor, 1 yr. parts.
  • Optional SAV system utilizes a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to automatically adjust the indoor fan motor speed between cooling stages. Available on 2–stage cooling models 08–14 with electromechanical, ComfortLink or RTU Open controls.
