130 years of feeling right at home
You’re probably familiar with the name. In the 1880s, American Standard pioneered clean and affordable heating for the home. From the earliest cast-iron radiators to today’s highly efficient heating and cooling systems, the American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning brand has been synonymous with home comfort.
The American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning family tree includes many of the most notable names in American manufacturing from the 19th and 20th centuries. It’s a history of mergers, breakthroughs and successes that continues into the 21st century. And it’s why even after 130 years, American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning remains the name to trust.
We Use it too!
5 Ton and 3 Ton 16 SEER Heat Pumps
The picture of the two American Standard outdoor units is an example of a 3 and 5 ton 16 SEER heat pumps. They provide both heating and air conditioning while providing the comfort and efficiency that American Standard offers. In simplest form the systems you see work as Air Conditioners in the summer and in the winter the process is reversed providing an efficient, steady, comfortable heat.
This is our American Standard Freedom 95 Furnace paired with a 16 SEER heat pump. On mild days (40 and up) we take advantage of the energy efficiency the electric heat pump has to offer. Once the temperatures drop below our set point our heat pump shuts down and our Natural Gas 95% efficient furnace takes over. Our hybrid heating systems, being controlled by an outdoor temperature sensor, works in complete harmony to provide steady heating and cooling as efficiently as possible. To the right of our furnace you can see 2 AprilAire 2410 media air cleaners (2 are needed because of the large volume of air we need to move for our commercial application). AprilAire guarantees a clean coil for 10 years with regular maintenance. Not only does the Media Air Cleaner remove dust, pollens, and allegiants from the air it also keeps the equipment as clean and factory fresh as possible. This will increase the life of the equipment and keep our equipment much more energy efficient.The 5 ton system is zoned to control the temperature and comfort of 3 different locations and thermostats. The brain’s� behind the zoning operation can be seen on the right hand side of the picture. Also installed is a fresh air circulator (required by code for commercial use). This pulls in fresh air from outside and mixes it with the stale� air from inside the building.Under our entire system is a water catching pan with a safety switch. Our 95% condensing furnace produces condensate in the winter while the AC produces condensate in the summer. If anything were to leak, clog, etc the condensate would make its way down to the pan triggering the water sensor and safely shutting down our equipment. The redundancies we install in our equipment (drain pan, safety switch, and route maintenance) ensure us that no future damage would occur if a leakage were to take place.
We have 2 three ton systems in our shop. The one displayed is an attic installation installed horizontally. All of our heating and air equipment have the same features, safety, air cleaners, and added comfort of our 5 ton system.
This picture depicts our American Standard 3 ton 16 SEER next to our 4 ton 22 SEER Mitsubishi outdoor. Both are heat pumps which we proudly install. The American Standard is used for your traditional ducted system while the Mitsubishi are installed in homes/rooms without ducts or existing AC.
At the time of the picture the set temperature is 73, the indoor temp is 73, and the weather is displayed. You can see that the day of the picture it was 66 degrees and partly cloudy. The thermostat can be controlled externally from a smart phone or computer. It is fully programmable and can manage humidity and indoor air quality. The thermostat can be as complex or as simple as you need it to be. It has a set it and forget it application or can be managed on a daily basis. Either way you will receive maximum comfort with maximum efficiency.
The ACONT800 is a fully lit, touch screen, 7 day programmable thermostat. Program in your daily routine and the thermostat makes sure you always come home to complete comfort. The ACONT800 ensures that the temperature is where you want it to be when you are home and maximizing efficiency when you are away.
