An electronically commutated motor (ECM) for your air-handler is a highly efficient alternative to the traditional permanent split capacitor motor (PSC).
How Does it Work?
These motors consume less energy when compared to PSC motors because of their difference in design. ECMs can be especially effective for people who use the fan-on mode of their thermostat which runs the air-handler motor continuously.
