The AHT5BD 13 SEER Series heat pump offers reliable scroll compressors, a permanently lubricated fan motor, and a hot gas mufler that reduces compressor noise. These heat pumps are manufactured to meet high quality standards and offer a 5 year limited warranty on all parts including the compressor.
This heat pump requires an indoor air handler or evaporator coil as part of a complete system. The coil or air handler you should use depends on two factors about the condenser: the tonnage, and the efficiency rating ("SEER"). Usually, high efficiency condensers require a larger tonnage coil than the tonnage of the condenser. For example, a 2 ton 16 SEER condenser might be paired with a 3 ton evaporator coil. To find the specific coils and air handlers that are recommended by the manufacturer for this condenser, check the Accessories tab above. Also, you can view the manufacturer's specifications sheets at the Documents tab above.
Some models of condensers include an orifice (also called "flow rater" or "piston") in a small bag taped to the side of the condenser. If the condenser you purchase includes this orifice, you will need to replace the orifice already inside the evaporator coil or air handler you purchase with this orifice included with the condenser. Doing so makes the condenser and evaporator coil compatible. You can view this step-by-step guide to see how to easily change the orifice.
If you are installing a heat pump with a backup heat source which will be a fuel furnace, you will need to install a thermostat like the Honeywell VisionPro 8000 (TH8320U 1008) thermostat. This thermostat switches between the two heat sources as needed and prevents both the heat pump and backup heat from running at the same time.

Please note that this equipment uses liquid refrigerant and that by federal law you must be EPA certified to handle the refrigerant. You can purchase this equipment without being certified, and if you are mechanically inclined you can perform about 90% of the equipment installation yourself. However, you must have a professional heating/cooling contractor do the final part of the installation which requires managing the refrigerant.
