WeatherMaster® Single-Packaged Rooftop Units
48P

Gas Heating / Electric Cooling Units with Puron® (R-410A) Refrigerant

30 to 100 Nominal Tons

48P2 – Vertical CV/SAV
48P3 – Vertical VAV
48P4 – Horizontal CV/SAV
48P5 – Horizontal VAV

Carrier P Series rooftop units are pre-wired and factory-tested in both cooling and heating modes. All models feature an industrial grade cabinet with fully hinged access panels. Forward-curved supply fans provide performance of up to 4 in. external static pressure (ESP) and 6 in. ESP with optional airfoil supply fans.

Units are available in constant volume (CV), staged air volume (SAV), or variable air volume (VAV) applications, with a wide variety of gas heating options. Units come with the ComfortLink™ DDC (direct digital control) control system, scroll compressors on independent thermostatic expansion valve (TXV) controlled refrigeration circuits.
