Amana has long cemented a reputation as a manufacturer of air quality products designed to be used with heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems. A check of their catalog will give you a choice of options for your contractor to install. However, if you are on the market for a new HVAC air-treatment device that has durability and efficiency written all over it, Amana’s AWUF Series of wall-mount air handlers can be right up your alley.
The AWUFs – all 19 models of them - have a number of common features. They include a fully-insulated body made of galvanized steel, a direct-drive motor with variable speed controller, aluminum tubes and a built-in filter rack with integrated filter. An AWUF air handler also features a thermoplastic drain pan with primary and secondary connections.
The heating output differs across the entire AWUF line. The most basic model, the 180316B, churns out 18,000 BTUs an hour at 3.5 kilowatts of electric heat. On the other hand, the king-size 371016B fires up 36,000 BTUs/h while emitting 10kW. As far as refrigerants go, you have a choice of either R410 or R22 to install in your preferred AWUF.
An Amana AWUF is meant to last when hooked to the HVAC. They carry a ten-year limited warranty, extensive parts support options, and various settings to help you breathe better.
