General Electric first introduced ECM technology to the residential HVAC industry in 1987. This technology is predominately used in indoor blower motor and outdoor fan motor applications, as well as some induced draft motor applications. These innovative motors changed the HVAC industry by providing unmatched efficiency as well as comfort options not possible with PSC induction motors.

General Electric developed an Electronically Commutated Motor (also called Electronically Controlled Motor), or ECM, technology for use in residential and light commercial heating and air conditioning systems in North America in the mid-1980s. The GE ECM motor was the first ultra-high efficiency motor for home heating and air conditioning systems, providing greater home comfort and energy efficiency.
Genteq develops and manufactures electronically commutated motors (ECM) and capacitors for residential and light commercial heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The company is based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, with manufacturing facilities in Mexico.
