Westinghouse Condensing Gas/Electric Packaged Unit Now Available in a Rooftop Version

95% AFUE R8HE released in a downflow configuration.

St. Louis, June 19, 2014 —Westinghouse® HVAC has expanded the R8HE gas/electric packaged system model to include a downflow configuration. The R8HE is the first condensing gas/electric packaged unit for residential applications and offers unprecedented heating efficiency – 95% AFUE.

When furnaces operate at such high levels of efficiency, condensate forms. With a gas/electric packaged system there is a fear that the condensate will freeze. The R8HE addresses this problem by piping the condensate into the building (in rooftop applications). This model also offers efficient, 14-SEER cooling capabilities.

Additional features of the R8HE include:

  • Micro-Channel Coils: Provide resistance to corrosion.
  • Copeland® Scroll Compressor: Provides efficient, quality operation.
  • SmartLite® Control Board: Extends the life of the ignitor.
  • Corrosion-Resistant Drain Pan and Embossed Bottom Pan: Keep the blower compartment dry.

The quality of the Westinghouse R8HE gas/electric packaged system is backed by an exceptional parts warranty – a 10-Year Limited All-Parts Warranty and Quality Pledge (product registration required).
