Communicating/24V Side Discharge Heat Pumps

Step into the future and redefine the power of a heat pump.

Welcome to the new wave of heating and cooling solutions. Side-discharge heat pumps are taking the country by storm because of their innovative features and benefits. These Elite models combine the efficiency and quiet operation of an inverter compressor heat pump with the humidity control of a variable-speed air handler. In addition, the low-profile footprint of our outdoor units requires less area for installation and accommodates applications with limited space. Side-discharge heat pumps have all these benefits plus the compatibility to replace your existing unit without a major renovation. When combined with our Elite Communicating Air Handlers, these systems achieve up to 17.3 SEER2 efficiency at a price point you will love.

      Frequently Asked questions

      What’s more important, HSPF or SEER?

      If you live in an area where winters are mild, then pay extra attention to the SEER rating. Conversely, if you live in the north where winters are more extreme, then the HSPF value is more important.

      What are the main differences between a heat pump and a mini-split heat pump (otherwise known as a ductless heat pump)?

      Generally, heat pumps are integrated into your home’s central heating and cooling system. That means the heat it provides travels through ducts into various rooms throughout your home. Alternatively, mini-split heat pumps, or ductless heat pumps, distribute heat directly into the room where they are installed.

      What is HSPF2?

      HSPF2 stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor 2. HSPF2 is a standardized rating used by all heat pump manufacturers to compare energy efficiencies between heat pumps. The higher the HSPF2, the more efficient the system operates during cold seasons.
