Noise-reduction features: Inverter units are exceptionally quiet because the DC compressor runs mostly at low RPMs, which minimizes any noise or vibration; also the operational sound of the compressor and fan is kept outside with the condensing unit, while a high-tech fan in the indoor unit delivers balanced airflow for whisper-quiet operation.

IAQ equipment supported: Triple filtration helps improve IAQ: an ionizer removes odors and microscopic particles from the air; an active carbon and dust filter removes pollen, dust, and smoke; and a freshening filter helps freshen the air. Also, as long as the unit is turned on the fan runs constantly, circulating air and pulling it across the filters for enhanced indoor air quality.

Thermostat compatibility: Manufacturer did not specify.

Replacement parts compatibility: Some shared parts and some unique parts.

Additional features: Mix-and-match systems allow cooling/heating of two, three, or four rooms with one outdoor condenser. Indoor units in new 18,000 Btuh capacity can be mixed with 9,000 and 12,000 Btuh units, until their combined capacity reaches the total system capacity; there are nine possible combinations from 27,000 to 36,000 Btuh. Low ambient operation allows cooling from 5˚ to 122˚F. Includes multiple modes, random swing, auto restart; thermostat is built into unit.

Warranty information: Six-year compressor, two-year parts with product registration; some limitations apply, see printed warranty on website or packed with unit. AssurancePlus extended service agreements are available; details on website or from a Century representative.

Special installation requirements: IOM gives tips for location selection, also specifications for maximum/minimum line set length and maximum outdoor elevation. Recommended indoor/outdoor connecting cable is 14 AWG/4 conductor 600V THHN unshielded stranded bare copper. Power comes from outdoor unit so no special indoor wiring or outlets are needed.
