Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US has introduced a new streamlined, four-way ceiling cassette that’s easier to install.
A component of the brand’s variable refrigerant flow sytem, the SLZ-KF Four-way Ceiling Cassette is part of the M-Series product line. It’s designed to provide the utmost comfort to homeowners, the manufacturer says, and is available in 9,000-, 12,000-, 15,000- and 18,000-BTU-sizes.
“We’re pleased to launch the SLZ-KF Four-way Ceiling Cassette and eager to let homeowners know about the new level of personalization the unit offers in terms of comfort control and airflow in their homes,” says Heather Buchicchio, senior residential product marketing manager at Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US. “With this attractive new cassette, users can enjoy expanded control over airflow patterns, advanced filtration, quiet operation, and enhanced capabilities for personalizing comfort and reducing energy usage.”
The unit offers flexible airflow with two, three or four-way vane control that allows homeowners to personalize their settings, Mitsubishi says. “If applied with the optional 3D i-see Sensor, the unit further customizes heating and cooling through the sensor’s ability to read a room’s thermal profile to calculate the occupancy rate,” the company adds.
With the 3D i-see Sensor, the company explains, direct and indirect airflow settings can be selected to offer 72 different combinations for vane direction and individual vane adjustment. The unit automatically adjusts conditioning based on the heat signatures detected in the space and can switch into setback mode when the room is unoccupied. “Monitoring a room’s occupancy results in even temperature distribution and a more energy-efficient operation for homeowners,” the company says.
Offering a seasonal energy efficiency ratio 19.8, the unit helps to improve the indoor air quality with an easy-to-clean washable air filter and multi-stage allergen filtration. It also offers reduced operating noise that is as low as 25 decibels.
For contractors, the SLZ-KFoffers simplified installation. Temporary hanging hooks, captive screws and a larger wrench turning radius on piping contribute to an easier installation process, the company says.
