If a furnace is not used to heat your home, a fan coil is needed for cooling in the summer. Why? Because the fan motor in a furnace is used year round to circulate air throughout the home. If your home uses another type of heating system, you need a fan coil to work with your air conditioner.
A fan coil (also called an air handler) is essentially a combination of the indoor coil from an evaporator coil and the fan motor from a furnace. The fan motor pulls air from the filtered return air duct, and forces it through the chilled or heated indoor coil. The air is then distributed back into the home.
Modern fan coils offer variable speed fan motors which are less expensive to run, and also whisper quiet. Fan coils do not have efficiency description ratings like other equipment, but selecting the right fan coil can lower your overall cooling costs. Additionally, a UV lamp installed in the coil will protect against efficiency robbing mold that can grow in the dark interior of the coil.
The Infinity fan coil is designed to communicate with the Infinity control which can automatically adjust your heating and cooling stages to ensure the highest levels of comfort and energy efficiency. In fact, its variable-speed blower motor will help you feel cooler at higher temperatures in the summer thanks to Ideal Humidity System® technology. Plus, with an Infinity control and heat pump outside you can have warmer air from the register indoors during those cool months.
