    Accessory Applications

    Exhaust Air Flange Kit, 10-in or 12-in dia.
    Gray metal flange with wire clamp and mounting screws.
    Outdoor Heat Exchanger Plenum, 10-in or 14-in dia.
    Gray metal plenum with return air flange. Includes mounting screws.
    Outdoor Heat Exchanger Filter Kit (not shown)
    Optional filter kit for condenser air intake for use in heavily dusty environments.
    Wall Thermostat
    Weekday and weekend programmable digital millivolt thermostat.
    Outdoor Heat Exchanger Air Intake

    The plenum can be used to prevent negative air pressure in the ceiling space when using the exhaust air-flange and duct to remove exhaust from the ceiling space. Simply attach a 10-in (CM12) or 14-in (CM25) diameter duct to the air plenum to bring in air from outside of the ceiling space (duct not included).
