The Direct Comfort by Goodman® brand DC-DSZC160361 14 to16 SEER Heat Pump uses the environmentally friendly refrigerant R-410A and features energy efficiencies and operating sound levels that are among the best in the heating and air conditioning industry. R-410A is chlorine-free to help prevent damage to the ozone layer. The DC-DSZC160361 features the two-stage, high-efficiency Copeland® UltraTech scroll compressor, which provides improved temperature and humidity control. This unit is designed for the consumer who desires superior comfort, quiet operation, and environmentally friendly air conditioning performance.
All Direct Comfort by Goodman 14 to 16 SEER heat pumps must be installed with a bi-flow thermostatic expansion valve. This valve is installed in front of the indoor evaporator coil inline with the line set piping.
When this unit is installed with the manufacturer recommended evaporator coil, a Direct Comfort by Goodman variable speed furnace, variable speed air handler or variable speed modular blower, it is usually 16 SEER. To achieve 16 SEER for a certainty, see Accessories tab below for actual products compatible with this heat pump, or the "Instructions & Brochures" tab below for Direct Comfort by Goodman's spec sheet details.

If you are installing a heat pump with a backup heat source which will be a fuel furnace, you will need to install an electronic all fuel kit. This kit switches between the two heat sources as needed and prevents both the heat pump and backup heat from running at the same time. Alternatively, you can install the Honeywell VisionPro 8000 (TH8320U1008) thermostat which has the all-fuel kit functionality built into it already, in which case an external all fuel kit would not be needed.
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. If you are mechanically inclined you may perform about 90% of the equipment installation yourself. However we strongly recommend that a professional heating / cooling contractor do the final part of the installation, including the managing of 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.
