Baso BGN891-1C For Lennox Pulse Furnaces Expected to Arrive Soon at CozyParts

We have been getting a lot of phone calls wanting to know when we were going to get the new Baso Control for Lennox Pulse Furnaces. We expect a shipment the week of January 9th. We are keeping our fingers crossed because we know a lot of HVAC servicers have people customers that are waiting on this part ot arrive. The BGN891-1C is a new product from Baso and is in production now. The BGN891-1C is set up in our online parts catalog and you can view the product detail page by following this link.

We will update when we know more.

Lennox Industries Announces New Line of Healthy Climate Whole House Humidifers

Lennox Industries recently announced the introduction of a NEW, redesigned line of Healthy Climate Whole-Home Humidifiers. The new Healthy Climate Whole-Home Humidifiers work with a central comfort system to provide homeowners with a more comfortable, healthier indoor environment. With three capacities, automatic or manual control options and improved design and durability, you can trust Healthy Climate humidifiers to provide the right whole-home solution.

Designed to easily integrate with existing comfort systems, the new Healthy Climate humidifiers are easier to install. A fixed, side-mounted solenoid valve no longer needs to be changed depending on install side — simply swap the tray, plug and drain locations. Fewer parts on the distribution tray also speeds up installation. A plastic feed tube allows for laminar flow and reduces water noise. Bases and front covers are made with a strong thermoplastic material. And bypass model front covers now include a molded-in top/bottom snap-fit. All this, plus a fresh new look.

Can retrofit ECM motors save money? You bet they can!

General Electric Evergreen ECM Motor

The General Electric Evergreen ECM Motor

A few of the techs here at CozyParts.com, Inc. decided to install a new General Electric Evergreen ECM motor in a 10 year old gas furnace. If you’re not familiar with these motors, they are an Electronically Commutated Motor that are intended to replace original OEM PSC motors in air handlers and furnaces. ECM motors are much more efficient than conventional PSC motors. These motors are currently marketed in two models. One is designed to replace 1/4, 1/3 and 1/2 HP blower motors motors and the other is designed to replace 3/4 HP blower motors.

Before the new ECM motor was installed, we used an Alnor air flow hood to verify CFM of the original factory installed PSC motor. We also used a watt/hour meter to measure the power being consumed by the original motor. We recorded CFM and wattages for the cooling mode and the circulation mode for both the original PSC motor and the ECM motor. The results were amazing.

Performance OLD PSC vs NEW ECM motor running at cooling speed:
The original PSC motor developed 1231 CFM resulting in 1.92 CFM per watt.
The replacement ECM motor developed 1220 CFM resulting in 2.74 CFM per watt.
We were impressed. That’s almost a 30% reduction in energy use.

Performance OLD PSC vs NEW ECM running on circulation speed (fan only):
The original PSC motor developed 761 CFM resulting in 2.36 CFM per watt.
The replacement ECM motor developed 724 CFM resulting in 7.78 CFM per watt.
Wow! We measured almost a 70% reduction in energy use. There is one note that we need to add here though. The Evergreen motor has an efficiency “sweet spot” that is designed into the motor specifically for continuous air circulation. We configured the motor to use the high efficiency setting for continuous air circulation. In this example, the savings are impressive.

Ok, the first thing we are going to say here is that we didn’t provide static pressures and a whole lot of documentation. While we did take total external static pressures and compare them to the original engineering specifications for the furnace, this was really only used to confirm that our total CFM was somewhat accurate. This article is more about our attempt to provide some useful information than it is to provide highly accurate test data. Since every installation would be different, highly accurate test data would probably not be that useful in the end. We are not representing the info here as something you can expect on every installation. Your own data may be better or worse.

In this example, the motor would pay for itself in a very short period of time if the motor was being allowed to run all of the time as part of an effort to enhance indoor air quality. We are seeing more and more people that are running the blower on their furnace year around to help with indoor air quality issues. If you compare the difference in price between and installed PSC motor and a ECM motor, the additional investment can be returned quickly in examples such as the one we have provided here. HVAC contractors should definitely consider conversion of PSC motor to ECM motors as part of their service business.

If anyone has done some of their own testing, we would love to hear from you.

Going Green: Purchase soft start heating and cooling systems for “off grid” applications.

With the continued growth of “off grid” electrical systems, appliances that have a high electrical starting current have become a bigger issue for designers of these systems. Off grid solar and generator systems typically have a much smaller peak current capacity than electrical systems that are connected to the power grid. The lower peak current capacity of off grid systems is problematic when it comes to staring high inrush current appliances such as air conditioning, refrigerators and other devices that use electric motors. All of these types of electrical loads typically require a much higher current to start than they require once they are running. The higher current requirement of these types of loads requires that off grid systems be sized large enough to handle the large inrush of current required to start loads with a high starting current.

But there is good news. Many manufacturers are not offering “Soft Start” technology that can lower starting current of high starting current appliances by as much as 70%. The soft start technology will allow appliances such as air conditioners to operate on off grid systems and generator systems that previously did not have the ability to provide the high inrush current that these types of loads require.

Main stream manufacturers of heating and cooling systems are now starting to offer soft start technology as a field installed option. If you are planning an off grid or generator system, you will want to make sure you seek out manufacturers that are offering soft start technology.
