The 15 SEER Prestige Series heat pump meets the new 2009 Energy Star® requirements in all tonnages. A removable top grille provides access to the outdoor fan motor and outdoor coil, while the four-sided outdoor coil design allows the compressor to operate while the access panel is removed. The unit uses R-410A refrigerant. Models featuring the optional Comfort Control System™ feature advanced diagnostics and display fault codes on a seven-segment LED display. The Prestige Series delivers efficiencies up to 15.5 SEER, 13 EER, and a heating seasonal performance factor of 10. When matched with the company’s ECM high-efficiency air handler, the system adjusts airflow to help control humidity for unsurpassed comfort in the cooling mode, says the manufacturer.
