Model KG7SD-E features factory-installed fixed-torque ECM blower motor.

St. Louis, February 26, 2016 — HVAC manufacturer Nortek Global HVAC is adding a new up to 95% AFUE furnace to its lineup. Model KG7SD-E comes with a factory-installed fixed-torque ECM motor; no kit needed. This new furnace qualifies for local utility rebates and the U.S. federal tax credit.

The Nortek Global HVAC fixed-torque ECM blower motor is programmable to 16 different speeds for both heating and cooling operation modes, making it extremely adaptable to challenging high-static applications as well a greater range of heating and cooling capacities. The new furnace also features:

  • • iSEER® motor technology for up to 1 SEER point efficiency gain in cooling on 13- and 14-SEER models
  • • SmartLite® hot surface igniter for long igniter life
  • • Insulated blower compartment for noise reduction
  • • 30-second blower delay on startup to ensure warm duct temperature

Model KG7SD-E joins the company’s other 95% AFUE furnaces, including a single-stage model with multi-speed non-ECM blower motor and two multi-stage models. The new upflow furnace is currently available in five sizes ranging from 54,000 BTU to 120,000 BTU. A 38,000 BTU model is expected to launch in spring 2016.

Model KG7SD-E is available in the Broan®, NuTone®, Gibson®, Kelvinator® and Philco® brands of HVAC equipment. Similar model MGC2SD-E is available in the Maytag® brand.
