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.

ClimateMaster Manufacturer’s Certification for Geothermal Tax Credit

If you sold ClimateMaster for a residential installation (including installations done in 2017), your homeowner may look to claim the re-instated geothermal tax credit.

As part of the claim process, homeowners will need ClimateMaster’s Manufacturer’s Certification of Geothermal Heat Pump Property Compliance. As a contractor, you can provide this at the time of installation or direct them to the ClimateMaster Residential Energy Credit page to download it.

 

Amana/Goodman 80% Furnace Flue Connector Fit-Up Inaccuracy

Goodman has released Service Bulletin SF-076 concerning the positioning of the flue connector fit-up on an on 80% furnaces produced at the new Daikin Texas Technology Park.

Please note: The positioning of the flue fit-up connector does not affect the safety or performance.

Beginning January 2018, the 80% furnace production began transitioning to our new factory at the DTTP (Daikin Texas Technology Park). In conjunction with this transition, enhanced manufacturing processes and tooling changes were implemented.

Capture1

As a result of these changes, we have recently found that the mounting brackets securing the heat exchanger to the wrapper were positioned further forward in the cabinet than intended on these DTTP produced furnaces. This may affect the fit-up of the flue connector as shown in the picture on the right. Some of the 80% furnaces, as listed in the table below, with serial number prefixes of 1801xxxxxx and 1802xxxxxx are affected.

Capture
For upflow or horizontal right installations: In some cases it will be necessary to lift the top panel slightly by pushing upwards on the bottom side of the top panel to allow the flue connector to slip onto the top of the induced draft blower. Additionally, it may be helpful to loosen or remove the two screws securing the left side of the top panel to improve access. After positioning the flue connector these screws should be secured as normal.

Capture2

For horizontal left installations: These applications generally require the chimneytransition bottom kit part # 0270F01119 orservice part # 4053501S. In most cases no additional trimmingof the horizontal flue cutout will be required. However, ifneeded the opening may be trimmed towards the front of thefurnace to provide adequate clearances.

Some models also state for horizontal installations to install a #8 x 5/8 screw through the center of the top panel (hole provided) into the flange of the partition panel. This hole will need to be moved ¼” towards the front of the furnace to avoid missing the partition panel. A self-tapping screw may be used.

Please note this does not affect the furnace safety or performance.
