EconoPLENUM™ is a return air plenum installed on a split system up to 5 tons. This plenum allows contractors to furnish FREE cooling in light commercial buildings and custom homes. Building science engineers indicate this will save as much as 20% of the total cooling usage annually. New 2009 I.E.C.C. Energy Code compliance requires economizers on ALL commercial applications INCLUDING split systems.
- Use cool outside air for cooling.
Close return air damper, open outside air damper and exhaust damper to bring in suitable outside air during a cooling call instead of energizing the condenser.
- Whole house ventilation.
In mild weather or anytime, allow 100% outside air to filter, ventilate and slightly pressurize the home.
- Remove indoor odors.
Flip a switch to remove all odors or stale air in minutes, then back to standard operation.
- Easy to install using a kit.
The EconoPLENUM, the 14” x 25” outside louvers, and the EconoController is all that is necessary, plus wire and duct.
These three items make up the EconoPLENUM KIT.
