The VAQ Series Air Handler Is Designed Primarily For Upflow Installations But Can Be Used Horizontally In Attics and Crawl Spaces with The Addition Of A Field Installed Horizontal Drain Pan. Each Air Handler Includes A Cooling Coil, A Separate Hot Water Coil, Circulating Pump, Air Purge Valve, Hot Water Check Valve, Flue Gas Door Switch, 120V Blower Motor, Throw Away Filter, and 24V Transformer.This Air Handler Converts A Properly Sized Gas or Oil-Fired Water Heater Into A Highly Efficient, Multi - Purpose Appliance That Can Heat An Apartment, Condominium, or Home In Addition To Providing Domestic Hot Water.When Space Heating Is Needed, The Wall Thermostat Energizes TheCirculating Pump Which Circulates Hot Water From The Water Heater To The Hot Water Coil In The Air Handler. As The Fan Motor Forces Cool Return Air From The Home Over The Hot Water Coil, The Air Absorbs Heat From The Hot Water. This Warm Air (105-110 °F) Is Then Circulated Throughout The Duct System and Into The Home. The Water Leaving The Hot Water Coil Is Then Returned To The Water Heater To Be Reheated.
