Goodman Manufacturing announced a new 18 SEER inverter heat pump, with ratings of up to 19 SEER and 13 EER.
The heat pump will be sold in 4 sizes: 2, 3, 4, and 5 ton. Because of the true inverter motor, half-sizes are not required.
The 18 SEER inverter heat pump comes with Amana’s Lifetime Unit Replacement Limited Warranty Coverage (complete warranty details available at www.amana-hac.com).
The inverter heat pump must be paired with the CTK-04 communicating thermostat and matches with a new line of Amana electronic expansion valve (EEV) air handlers: the AVPEC family.
Full product specs are here.
The new EEV allows the valve to adjust based on performance load, which improves overall efficiency of the system compared to a TXV. For an explanation of the benefits of an EEV compared to a TXV in variable load situations, click here.
