Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US Expands Residential Product Line with SLZ-KF 4-Way Ceiling Cassette

Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US introduces the SLZ-KF Four-way Ceiling Cassette for residential installations.

The new SLZ-KF Four-way Ceiling Cassette, part of the M-Series product line from METUS, is designed to provide the utmost comfort to homeowners. The cassette is available in 9,000, 12,000, 15,000 and a newly introduced 18,000 Btu/hr size.

The unit offers flexible airflow with two, three or four-way vane control which allows homeowners to personalize their settings. If applied with the optional 3D i-see Sensor the unit further customizes heating and cooling through the sensor’s ability to read a room’s thermal profile to calculate the occupancy rate.

With the 3D i-see Sensor, direct and indirect airflow settings can be selected to offer 72 different combinations for vane direction and individual vane adjustment. The SLZ-KF automatically adjusts conditioning based on the heat signatures detected in the space and can switch into setback mode when the room is unoccupied. Monitoring a room’s occupancy results in even temperature distribution and a more energy-efficient operation for homeowners.

The SLZ-KF Four-way Ceiling Cassette has a SEER of over 19.8. This is well over the U.S. minimum SEER requirement of 13 and can translate to cost savings on users’ heating and cooling bills. Additionally, the SLZ-KF offers a HSPF rating of 11.2 or more, which is a marked improvement in energy-saving performance as compared to previous models.

In addition to promoting sustainability through energy efficiency, the ceiling cassette helps to better the environment within a home through improved indoor air quality and reduced operating noise. The SLZ-KF Four-way Ceiling Cassette includes an easy-to-clean washable air filter with multi-stage allergen filtration to reduce dust and debris circulation. The unit also uses a new 3D-turbo fan to operate at noise levels as low as 25 dBA. These features lead to a quieter, more comfortable air-conditioning experience for occupants.

The SLZ-KF also benefits contractors with features for simplified installation. Temporary hanging hooks, captive screws and a larger wrench turning radius on piping contribute to an easier installation process.
