My salesman boss has thrown me some parameters for the making of a residential bid he's working on.
Upflow -Heat only
I've called one of the local wholesalers and he right away recommended a Goodman air handler. Trouble with that is they top out at about 5 Ton and that's significantly shy of the BTUH spec originally given.
I've also searched this site and the WWW for 'electric furnace' and am left with a question of tech school versus field terminology.
I always thought an air handler was essentially a horizontal electric furnace. It seems that from a technical perspective, it's not quite that cut and dried. My understanding at this point is the core technology is simply an electric resistive element/coil with an airstream blown over it. Is it what can go into the chassis after that, that makes it one or the other ?
