Air Handlers - WAHME, WAHMS, WAHMV Air Handlers

The Whirlpool® WAHME, WAHMS, WAHMV Multi-Position Air Handlers are suitable for use with refrigerants R-410A and replacement R-22 applications.

All models feature a check flowrater expension device and the WAHMS features a direct-drive, multi-speed motor as well.

The WAHME's blower design includes an EEM (energy-saving), fixed-speed motor that can enhance the efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps.

The WAHMV's blower motor allows for a soft start and stop for quieter, more efficient operation and eliminates the cold blast of air upon heating start-up. Using an ECM motor, this air handler is ideal for new or retrofit applications.
