Keeping Ductless Simple with the D6 Pro Wireless Controller

The D6 Pro is a cost-effective alternative to ductless branded controls and Wi-Fi adapters. It is compatible with more than 100 different models of ductless mini-split systems from top manufacturers.

Install In Record Time

The D6 Pro can be placed on a tabletop or wall mounted with no wiring to the ductless indoor unit (24V power required).  The D6 uses an IR signal to communicate with the ductless indoor unit, the same way a wireless controller does. Just mount it where it can “see” the indoor unit and set up directly on the D6, no app needed.

Eliminate Callbacks

Unlike most controllers, which have far more features than the average homeowner needs, the D6 makes interaction easy and familiar.  Basic control (temperature setpoint and switching between cooling and heating) can be done directly on the D6 using the three buttons at the bottom of the display.

Control On The Go

The D6 can be controlled by the Honeywell Home app (available through Google Play or the App Store as the Lyric App).  This means that a homeowner who has a Honeywell Wi-Fi stat controlling the unitary system in the house can now control both the unitary system and a supplemental ductless system with a single app.  This makes Honeywell’s T-series Wi-Fi stats a great add-on sale on a ductless system install.

The app offers a full range of control options:

  • Temperature, Mode and Fan Control.
  • Scheduling via geofencing or traditional schedule settings
  • Auto Changeover
  • Temperature, Humidity and Filter alerts, notifications and reminders
  • Multi-Split Display: Grouped controllers by outdoor system
  • Third Party Integrations including Amazon Alexa and Google Home

The D6 Pro is available at all HVAC branches and through Web Order Entry.

HVAC Distributors Now Stocking Tear-Resistant Ductless Line Sets

818612dd-4acd-490d-8792-e30797c48cff__63461.1510805724

HVAC Distributors now stocks tear-resistant line sets for ductless installations. (We also have standard ductless line sets available)

Why Tear-Resistant?

Many contractors appreciate that this type of line set, which bonds a tear-resistant outer material to the line set insulation, is more forgiving when fishing line through walls for ductless installations.

Some other features of HVAC Distributors’ tear-resistant line sets:

Insulation Thickness

  • 1/2” thick, compared to the 3/8” thickness on our standard ductless line sets, providing greater insulation value
  • Complies with new building code requirement of 1/2” insulation for residential new construction in some counties in Delaware and Maryland

Color

  • White (vs. the black of standard insulation)
  • UV retarders added to resist degradation from sun exposure

Code Compliance

  • Meets ASTM B280 and C1427 specifications
  • Flame Spread Index is rated at 25/50 Plenum rated to ASTM E84, UL723, and NFPA255

Tear-resistant line sets are available at all HVAC branches and through Web Order Entry.

 

HVAC Distributors Now Stocking Lochinvar Noble™ Combi Boiler

noble-2

Lochinvar’s new combi boiler, the Noble, improves the current combi experience – both for you, the contractor, and your customer, the homeowner.

First – the Noble offers cost savings. Instead of sizing up to get the stated BTUs for your system for domestic heating, you can simply select the model you need. Its stated BTU input is the domestic heating input. All sizes have a 10:1 turndown ratio and 95% AFUE.

Sizes available: 110,000 BTU/hr, 150,000 BTU/hr, and 199,999 BTU/hr.

Second – the Noble provides rapid, reliable hot water supply and efficient space heating. The Noble can provide heating and almost instantaneous hot water because of patented control technology for pre-heat and domestic hot water response. This is the only system that provides this level of convenience to homeowners for both domestic heat and hot water.

Third – simple set up and serviceability. The Noble boiler is equipped with Lochinvar’s SMART CONTROL™, and is set up by answering 10 simple questions. The user-friendly LCD display provides diagnostic information and system status in plain English, not codes.

Critical components, like the built-in circulator, are easily accessible making service and maintenance for quick and easy for contractors. You can remove components within two minutes for service and cleaning.

See the benefits of the Noble for yourself in the video below.

The Lochinvar Noble is available at our East Region locations, and can be ordered by phone or through Web Order Entry.

New “D” Cabinet Width on Goodman GMVC96 and Amana AMVC96 Furnaces

Goodman Manufacturing has expanded its furnace offering by adding a D-width (24-1/2”) to the popular GMVC96 and AMVC96 furnaces in the 100MBH, 5 ton size.  Previously, these models have only been offered with the C-width (21″) cabinet.

41fksa5v3zl-_sy300_

The D-width cabinet allows a flush fit of the coil and furnace, which provides a cleaner installed appearance. C-width cabinet installations require 3.5″ of coil cabinet overhang in relation to the furnace (1.75″ each side).

These furnaces are available at any of our HVAC Distributors locations and can be ordered by phone or through Web Order Entry.
