With models operating from 24,000 to 60,000 BTU/H, the Amana RSD Ultron air conditioner has an efficiency rating of 13 SEER and yet, according to the manufacturer, can reach 15 SEER when used with high-efficiency blower coils.
This “budget-friendly” unit, which was discontinued shortly after 2002, was designed with a large fan blade capable of moving large amounts of air. The RSD Ultron is manufactured as a compact unit with a painted sheet metal cabinet. The bottom of the unit is designed to allow drainage and encourage air flow as a corrosion prevention feature. In addition, the fan, motor and coil are protected by heavy-coated grills, and the motor is sealed to ensure protection from the elements.
Maintenance and servicing of the RSD Ultron is made easy via side and top access to the compressor and tubing. Easy-to-reach refrigerant line connections and valves and adequate internal room is further intended to ease unit installation and repair.
Amana uses a Copeland Compliant ZP series scroll compressor in this unit. The hermetic seal in the compressor’s scroll provides protection from current and temperature problems. The compressor also has anti-short cycle protection, a factory-installed sound blanket and a liquid line-filter drier.
