Nortek Global HVAC now offers a shorter version of its M7RL gas furnace that can handle high-seasonal energy-efficient ratio-rated coils in tight HVAC construction spaces.

The new version does not have an integrated coil cabinet.

“By offering this new M7 model without an integrated coil cabinet, we’re giving contractors and manufactured home builders more options in difficult furnace applications,” explains John Remley, Nortek Global HVAC product manager. “The M7RL furnace is used in manufactured housing where space is at a premium. Our new shorter variation will help contractors and home builders who need to accommodate taller evaporator coils due to higher efficiency, higher capacity or dual-fuel installations.

“Because it does not have an integrated coil cabinet, contractors and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) can select the appropriate coil box for a simple 13-SEER air conditioner in the North or a more challenging 14-SEER heat pump in the South,” Remley said.
