Description

ACiQ's Energy Star multi zone mini split systems are designed to give you maximum efficiency at a lower cost than the Max Heat models. The ES-48Z-M5/ACIQ-18CD-HH-M-3 Energy Star system provides heat down to -13 degrees and cooling as high as 122 degrees outside temperatures, all at a very competitive price.

18,000 BTU Concealed Duct ACiQ Mini-Split Air Handler

Concealed Duct air handlers give you all the advantages of a multi zone mini split, without any visible air handlers on your walls or ceilings. These flexible units are designed to be concealed above the ceiling, below the floor, above a closet ceiling, above a hallway ceiling or behind a soffit. You run flex ducting from the concealed duct air handler to ceiling or wall registers in your desired location. Depending on the capacity of the unit, up to 4 flex duct runs can be connected, perfect for a pair of small bedrooms or a master suite.

The design is extremely simple return air is brought in at the rear of the unit and supply (cooled or heated) air is pushed out the front by an almost-silent squirrel cage fan. You attach a pre-made manifold takeoff or field-fabricate plenums using ductboard. Using readily available supplies, the customization possibilities are endless.

Installation Considerations

Concealed duct system installations require a certain amount of pre-planning, and are similar in scope to a standard home HVAC installation. They are best used in new construction projects or additions. Installation will require flex ducting, register vents, plenums and installation supplies in addition to the equipment components. The Concealed Duct units have a factory-installed pump to lift the condensation. From there you will use PVC to construct a drain system to a safe wastewater location.

FEATURES

  • 18,000 btu of Heating or Cooling
  • Dry and Fan modes also available
  • Good for a medium room in most climates
  • Wall mounted thermostat included

48,000 BTU ACiQ Multi Zone Condenser

OVERVIEW

ACiQ is the smart solution to adaptive heating and cooling in almost any space and climate -all at an affordable cost. With the ES-48Z-M5B, you can have up to 5 air handlers run off a single condenser, saving space outside and keeping you perfectly comfortable in your home.

QUICK FACTS

  • 48,000 BTU, 23.4 SEER2 multi zone heat pump condenser
  • Designed to function with up to 5 attached air handlers
  • Efficient cooling from 5°F to 122°F outdoor temperatures
  • Efficient heating from -13°F to 75°F outdoor temperatures
  • Gold Fin full-protection coating on condenser coil
  • Quiet operation at even the highest workloads

48,000 BTU, 23.4 SEER2

The 48,000 BTU, ES-48Z-M5 is designed to easily support up to 5 air handlers at up to 1.25 times the condenser BTU rating, or 60,000 BTU across all air handlers. This adaptive, inverter condenser is constantly self-adjusting to provide the precise amount of heating or cooling needed to maintain your desired temperature in each room or zone. You can set different temperatures room by room, even turn off heating and cooling in unused areas. This, combined with a high efficiency rating of 23.4 SEER2, means you are buying a system designed to intelligently save you money both up front and over the lifetime of the unit.

Although the condenser is pre-charged, please note that this model of equipment does not have quick connect line set connectors and is not a self-install unit. You will need a professional to add more refrigerant and vacuum the lines as needed. Installation materials such as line sets, control wire, drain hose, whip and disconnect are not included, but are available at additional cost in the Accessories section to the right of this text. For all multi zone ACiQ condensers, a minimum of two air handlers is needed for the unit to function.
