At one of the higher efficiencies on the market, the Goodman GSZ160481 heat pump condenser is designed to save you money both up front and in energy bills over time. With its high-quality construction, the GSZ160481 is considered a good all-around choice for many applications.
- Designed to cover a larger house in average climates
- 4 ton, 16 SEER heat pump condenser
- Low sound output
- Fully charged for up to 15’ of line set
- Factory-installed bi-flow filter drier
The Goodman GSZ160481 heat pump is rated for 4 tons, which is normally enough to cover a larger house in average climates. A heat pump coil or air handler is required for this condenser to function, and some indoor units will be larger in tonnage than this condenser in some bundles to maintain the unit’s overall efficiency.
With its high-end 16 SEER efficiency rating, the GSZ160481 is designed to save you money over the entire life of the unit. 16 SEER units will save you about 12% more in energy bills over a 14 SEER system, making this upgrade a smart upgrade to save you money over time with a small increase in your initial investment in the system.
The GSZ160481 condenser comes with Goodman’s standard 10 year parts warranty with online registration through the manufacturer. An installation that follows your state and local codes is required for the warranty to be upheld.
Durability and Reliability
The cabinet on the GSZ160481 heat pump is designed to be durable in harsh conditions. With its baked-on polyester coat of paint, the unit is approved for up to 500 hours of salt spray. The enhanced durability and paint coat makes the GSZ160481 compliant with 2010 Florida building codes for unit integrity for hurricane-like winds when the unit is properly anchored. For reliability, there is also a built-in bi-flow filter drier that lowers general wear-and-tear on the internals of the unit.
Installation and Maintenance
In order to provide a faster and less expensive installation, the Goodman GSZ160481 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.
Comfort in Mind
The Goodman company has always promoted enhanced comfort, higher efficiency, and lower cost to all of its units. With SmartShift technology and an enhanced sound insulation structure, the GSZ160481 is whisper-quiet, allowing Goodman to continue to follow its goals in achieving the best comfort levels possible at a low cost.
