The Direct Comfort by Goodman® DC-GSZ14 14 to 15 SEER Heat Pump is a great value, not only for the price, but because it continues to save you money on energy costs throughout the life of the system.  Heat Pump technology harnesses the power of the refrigerant cycle to provide cooling in summer plus, by reversing the cycle, heating in winter without fossil fuels.  The DC-GSZ14 uses the environmentally friendly refrigerant R-410A and features operating sound levels that are among the best in the heating and cooling industry. To watch a video on heat pump technology, click here:  https://www.alpinehomeair.com/learningcenter/ac-cooling/air-conditioner-vs-heat-pump

The DC-GSZ14 can be 14 or 15 SEER, depending on the indoor unit it is paired with. If it is installed with the manufacturer recommended evaporator coil, a TXV and a Direct Comfort by Goodman variable speed furnace, air handler, or modular blower it is a 15 SEER system.  For complete matchup information, see the Accessories tab below, consult the Specifications Sheet in the Documents section below, or call 800 865 5931 to speak to a consultant. A 15 SEER heat pump system will reduce your electric bill approximately 7% - 8% more than a 14 SEER heat pump system.

Heat Pumps such as the DC-GSZ14 require a backup heat source for extreme cold temperatures.  If you will be using a gas, LP or oil furnace as a backup heat source, you will need to install a heat pump compatible thermostat such as the Honeywell VisionPro 8000 (TH8320R1003) that can switch between the two heat sources as needed and prevent both the heat pump and backup heat from running at the same time. If you prefer, you can use an electronic all fuel kit to accomplish the same functionality.

Please note that this heat pump equipment comes pre-charged with R-410A liquid refrigerant and by Federal law cannot be released to the atmosphere. Yes, you can purchase this equipment without being EPA certified. And, if you are mechanically inclined you may perform about 90% of the equipment installation yourself. However, we strongly recommend to have a professional heating/cooling contractor do the final part of the installation including managing the refrigerant. An HVAC contractor has the tools and know-how to do this work. Also, having a contractor perform the final startup and inspection of this heat pump validates your warranty with Alpine.

SEER

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure of cooling over an entire season. It is determined by comparing the amount of cooling produced in BTUs in relation to the amount of electricity used. A higher SEER means a system is more energy efficient and would provide comfort at a lower utility cost than a lower SEER system.

14 SEER
Refrigerant

Inside air conditioning systems are liquid/gas refrigerant. There are two types of this refrigerant available for use, R-22 (more commonly known as Freon), and a newer alternative R-410A.

An air conditioning system does not consume refrigerant, but reuses it. As long as there are no leaks in the refrigerant circuit, there is no need to ever add more refrigerant to an air conditioning system.

Although R-22 is an effective refrigerant, if it is released into the atmosphere it can contribute to the depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer. The EPA has mandated the phasing out the use of R-22. It is being replaced by R-410A.

As of 2010, manufacturers are required to make all new air conditioners with R-410A. However, R-22 is still available for sale in existing pre-2010-manufactured equipment, and for use in servicing existing R-22 equipment. By 2020, R-22 will no longer be manufactured, but will still be recycled and available for sale.

Compressor Type

Reciprocating compressors use a piston to compress the refrigerant.

Rotary compressors utilize a roller rotating eccentrically inside a cylinder and a spring mounted blade always rubbing against the roller. As the eccentric rotates towards the blade, the space is decreased and the refrigerant is compressed. Rotary compressors are very efficient.

Scroll compressors consists of 2 scrolls to pressurize refrigerant. Often 1 scroll is fixed and the other orbits eccentrically compressing the gas between the scrolls. Scroll compressors are quiet, smooth and offer highest efficiency ratio of all compressor types.

Scroll Ultratech™ compressors are advanced scroll compressors which offer more features and better diagnostics.
