Circulator Blower Speeds

This furnace is equipped with a multi-speed circulator blow-
er. This blower provides ease in adjusting blower speeds.
The Specification Sheet applicable to your model provides an
airflow table, showing the relationship between airflow (CFM)
and external static pressure (E.S.P.), for the proper selection
of heating and cooling speeds.

POWER TO THE FURNACE BEFORE CHANGING SPEED TAPS
1. Determine the tonnage of the cooling system installed with
the furnace. If the cooling capacity is in BTU/hr divide it
by 12,000 to convert capacity to tons.
Example: Cooling Capacity of 30,000 BTU/hr.
30,000/12,000 = 2.5 Tons
2. Determine the proper air flow for the cooling system. Most
cooling systems are designed to work with air volume
between 350 and 450 CFM per ton. Most manufacturers
recommend an air flow of about 400 CFM per ton.
Example: 2.5 tons X 400 CFM per ton = 1000 CFM
3. Select the heating speed for your model from the
heating speed chart in the Specification Sheet. The
selected speed must provide a temperature rise within
the rise range listed with the particular model.
To adjust the circulator blower speed, proceed as follows:
1. Motor speed Tap wiring must remain in factory position
on the control board and motor.
2. There are 4 speed Tap wires to the motor T1, T2, T3, T4.
3. There are 5 speeds available, depending on DIP switch
settings and found in air flow table for each size furnace.
4. Cooling Speed can be adjusted by adjusting S1-1, S1-2,
S1-3 (see cooling airflow Chart for reference).
5. Heating Speed can be adjusted by adjusting S2-1 , S2-2
(see heating airflow Chart).
6. Circulation / Continuous Fan speed can be adjusted
by adjusting S2-3 , S2-4 (see Circulation airflow Chart)
7. Verify proper temperature rise as outlined in the
Temperature Rise section of Startup Procedure and
Adjustment.

In general lower heating speeds will: reduce electrical con-
sumption, lower operating sound levels of the blower, and
increase the outlet air temperature delivered to the home.
The speeds available allow the blower performance to be op-
timized for the particular homeowner's needs.
