Warranty information: Six-year compressor, one-year all parts upgradeable to five years through "Diamond Designer" program.

Special installation requirements: In the Y Series, performance option heating or cooling is not simultaneous as in the R2 Series, so the BC Controller is not used. Installation requires copper tubing plus power and control wiring to be run between indoor and outdoor units. Branch circuits may also be used. Condensation drainage from indoor units also a consideration, the company says.
