SUWANEE, Georgia, March 13, 2018Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc.’s Cooling & Heating Division (Mitsubishi Electric), a leading manufacturer of Zoned Comfort Solutions™ and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) cooling and heating systems, introduces the new 1:1 Ducted Air Handler (SVZ) designed to be paired with an SUZ Universal Outdoor Unit.

The air handler joins the M-Series product lineup from Mitsubishi Electric, which includes an array of indoor unit, outdoor unit and control options. Like the series’ ductless systems, the SVZ is energy efficient, easy to install and flexible in its application. What sets the SVZ apart from other models is its smaller footprint and one-to-one configuration with the SUZ Universal Outdoor Unit.

“We are excited to round out our already comprehensive M-Series lineup with this addition,” said Brinnon Williams, director of residential product development. “The reduced physical sizes provide more installation flexibility. The smaller capacities are ideal for performance construction applications where you still might like to have access to designing around ductwork. Although smaller and now more affordable, the SVZ and SUZ still retain the effectiveness of Mitsubishi Electric products.”

Other features of the SVZ 1:1 Ducted Air Handler include:

  • 16-18 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) (Target)
  • 12,000 and 18,000 Btu/h models
  • Electric heat kits available as accessories
  • Reduced height
  • Upflow and horizontal configurations
