In moderate to warm climates, replacing a gas furnace split system with this heat pump and an air handler is also an option, especially where electricity is a good value or where utility companies are offering rebates for energy-efficient equipment.

- Copeland Ultra Tech scroll compressor is the top compressor in HVAC ratings.
- 2-stage operation works with a variable-speed blower to optimize indoor comfort.

Overall Rating [Rating:4.5/5]
This is one of our highest-rated heat pumps. The high efficiency cooling and the dual fuel heating makes it a top choice in climates with extreme temperatures.

In moderate climates the high efficiency of this heat pump may not be required.
