unitThe entire Reznor brand of commercial/industrial/residential gas-fired unit heaters for the North American market have undergone a redesign. Updates to the units include aesthetics, integrated air direction accessories and technological advancements that help contractors with installation, diagnostics and service.

The redesign applies to Reznor’s UEZ, UDZ, UBZ, UDX and UBX Series, which encompass unit heater models up to 400-MBH and up to 93% thermal efficiency. The unit heater product line is suited for industrial, commercial, light commercial and even residential (garage/workshop) applications.

The units’ new control module displays 11 operational modes and error codes in a digital readout that corresponds with a nearby code chart. A new hinged access door prevents door drops and allows servicing while open.  An external green LED light display on every unit’s bottom panel confirms proper operation and flashes when maintenance is recommended.

Air direction versatility has also been increased with optional downturn nozzle and vertical louver accessories.

Reznor also continues to use its unique single burner combustion design, which makes the unit heaters easier to interchange between propane and natural gas versus labor-intensive gas conversions.

Other features include:

  • External terminal strip for easy access with 24-V wiring connections;
  • Technical literature QR Code;
  • 2-pt and 4-pt suspension receptacles (standard on all sizes);
  • Easy access external gas connection.

The new look includes two-tone white and black cabinetry featuring powder coat paint application that eliminates sharp edges and reduces corrosion, fading, chipping, and scratching.

Premium models also include red accented louvers and the Reznor logo embossed on the bottom panels.

Reznor is a division of Nortek Global HVAC.
