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.
