- Designed to cover a medium-sized house in average climates
- 3 ton, 16 SEER heat pump condenser
- Two stage compressor
- Low sound output
- Fully charged for up to 15’ of line set
- Factory-installed bi-flow filter drier
At 3 tons, the GSZC160361 heat pump by Goodman is suitable for a medium-sized house in average climate conditions. Please note that for this unit to function, a compatible air handler or coil is required. Sometimes, the air handler or coil that is paired in a system bundle will be larger than the heat pump condenser in tonnage to maintain the unit’s overall efficiency.
At 16 SEER, one of the highest efficiencies on the market for this type of system, the GSZC160361 can save you around 12% in energy bills in comparison to a 14 SEER system, saving you money over time to spend on the things you care about most instead of on your energy bills.
Two Stage Compressor, Designed with Comfort in Mind
The Goodman GSZC160361 heat pump is built with a two stage compressor, allowing for a more stable temperature output. With its built-in compressor muffler, noise blanket, and superior cabinet insulation, the noise output is decreased to make it almost whisper-quiet, along with the two stage compressor that decreases operation noise output when on the lower stage.
The GSZC160361 heat pump condenser comes standard with a 10 year parts warranty. To provide a peace of mind on its two stage compressor, Goodman also offers a lifetime heat exchanger warranty when paired with a new air handler or coil. All of these warranties require an installation that follows your state and local codes and the unit must be registered online through the manufacturer.
Durability and Reliability
With its durable structure designed for harsh conditions and its paint layer that makes it approved for up to 500 hours of salt spray, the Goodman GSZC160361 heat pump condenser is compliant with Florida 2010 integrity building codes when properly anchored. For enhanced reliability, the liquid line is fitted with a bi-flow filter drier, lowering general wear-and-tear by filtering out impurities and system contaminants. All of these features provide peace of mind to system owners, lowering the costs of equipment upkeep.
Installation and Maintenance
In order to provide a faster and less expensive installation, the Goodman GSZC160361 heat pump is factory-installed with pressure switches, a high-capacity muffler, easily accessible gauge ports, and service valves with sweat connections. The cabinet of the unit is also fitted with dual access panels—one on the side and one on the top—to allow for a much easier maintenance procedure should the need for maintenance arise.
