    Need a 65,000 BTU Split System

    I have a home with a 13 year old Carrier split. (Heat Pump)

    Outdoor is an 060, indoor has an 070 in the model #.

    Load Calculation comes out to 65,600 BTU's.

    Cant find a match with Trane, Rheem or ComfortMaker.

    Anyone know if any manufactures have a single phase, heat pump, 5.5 ton? If so an ARI # or model numbers would be great.

    I cant split the duct work and add a second system. Its not in their budget and the home is for sale.

    Thanks for any help.

    In a split, best cooling I could find is Lennox HPX14-060 or XP14-060, they can reach 61K.

    Are you using Manual 'S' for the equipment selection? If the SHR # isn't the default .7, you may come close with a 5.0-ton unit, properly charged with proper airflow. Or maybe your calc is off just a tad? What's in the house now? You can get higher outputs from geo systems but it doesn't sound like an option from your post.
    If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.

    If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!

    Make improvements to lower load and decrease equipment size.

    That is what I'm going to do. It has R19 batts in the attic. Going to do some blown in fiberglass and get it up to R30.

    Thanks to everyone that replied!
