    Does anyone know why you can not put an evergreen motor in an air handler?

    Where are you getting this information?

    Evergreen motors are not approved to replace existing ECM Variable Speed or X13 motors, but can be used in any air-handler that has a PSC motor (except for twinned or belt drive applications).

    The installation manual states that you CAN NOT install the motor in an air handler

    Are you looking at the Evergreen IM installation manual?

    It says on page 3"

    DO NOT use this motor on any “twinned” furnace or air handler systems.

    This is what I noted in one of my previous posts. Is that what you are talking about?

    I understand why you can not "twin" variable-speed furnaces or, in your case, alter fixed torque motor twinned furnaces.

    But I would be curious as to why they say not to be installed in an airhandler? In my simple mind it makes no sense.

    They ARE designed for both air handlers and furnaces as long as they are not TWINNED.

    Thanks for clarifing that. I thought it would be possible to install on an airhandler.

    I have twinned furnaces over the years and I was aware of the fact that furnaces with "variable-speed" blowers were a no-no.
