The AirQuest R4H430GKC heat pump condenser has an output of 2.5 tons, generally enough to heat and cool up to a medium-sized house in ideal climates. In many system configurations, the tonnage of the unit’s paired coil or air handler will be larger in tonnage than this condenser, which maintains the efficiency of the unit.Please note that this condenser cannot function on its own, and it needs an indoor coil or air handler to work. This unit will also only heat down to around 35°F, and if you need heat any lower than this, a backup heat strip will be needed to act as straight electric heating in a compatible air handler.
The AirQuest by Carrier R4H430GKC air conditioner condenser is rated at 14 SEER, making it between 5-7% more efficient than standard 13 SEER units, saving you money in electric bills over the entire lifetime of your unit.
