Installation brackets, sold separately, for installing water to air heat exchangers inside of furnace plenums. This easy to install kit takes all of the work out of installing a coil. Great for the do it yourselfer or the seasoned installer
This kit will work with most coils being sold on other sites that are 3.5" wide. Check before you buy, but that will cover over 90% of the ones being sold. Even most that are listed as 4" are actually 3.5". These will work with every heat exchanger being sold elsewhere and our website store.
We provide a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.
These heat exchangers are to be hooked up to a boiler or a chilled water source.
These heat exchangers are to be hooked up to a boiler or a chilled water source. When hooked up to your boiler or chilled water source, these heat exchangers can also be used as a stand alone heat source by simply attaching a fan or squirrel cage to one side of the unit.
They can be installed in either the hot air side or the cold air return of a furnace. Please note that if installed in the cold air return you will need to install a 3 way zone valve in order for the fan to operate properly.
This heat exchanger is of a new style which does not require bending of your duct work.
This new style heat exchanger can be easily installed by just slipping it into the plenum and attaching with self threading screws. You will not need any special tools to install. This unit is easier to install than others on the market because it attaches from the front instead of the side.
Water to Air heat exchangers, often called duct coils or furnace radiators, are used for installing into forced air furnace to provide heat from hot water. They work in much the same way as the central air conditioning unit.
The following things should be taken into consideration when installing a duct coil.
(1) Size the coil so that the fins take up the maximum amount of the plenum as possible.
(2) Securely fasten the unit so that it doesn't rattle.
(3) Make sure there are no foreign objects are touching the fins or the tubes.
(4) Duct tape any air leaks.
(5) Do not bend the fins. If you do, straighten them as best you can. A tool called a "Rake" is available for straightening the fins.
(6) If you are going to run your outside heat in the summer install a bypass valve.
(7) A duct coil installation kit makes installing the heat exchanger easier.
All coils come packed in foam to prevent damage during shipping.
