Frigidaire R8HE Gas/Electric Packaged Unit
The Frigidaire R8HE gas/electric packaged unit series of products now includes a downflow/rooftop configuration. The R8HE employs enhanced technology to provide the most heating efficiency available in a gas/electric packaged system for residential applications – 95 percent AFUE.
When installed on a roof, the condensate exits the unit and is piped into the building to prevent it from freezing. In addition to exceptional heating efficiency, the R8HE also offers 14-SEER cooling efficiency.
Additional perks of the R8HE include:
- Increased resistance against corrosion due to Micro-Channel coils.
- Quality operation supplied by a Copeland Scroll compressor.
- Dry blower compartment due to a corrosion-resistant drain pan and embossed bottom pan.
- Increased ignitor life due to a SmartLite control board. This feature learns the start-up characteristics of the particular unit and adjusts the ignitor’s warm-up timing based on those characteristics.
