I submitted an online quote from a local company to change out my existing AC system with a Heat Pump onto my existing gas furnace. I noted in the quote that for the 16 SEER system the following:
"16 SEER HP condenser cannot be purchased as stand alone equipment to be added to an existing furnace. The size of new coil requires purchase of new furnace or air handler to accommodate it".
This wording was not included with the 14 or 15 SEER systems though. Is this so to achieve the listed SEER rating? Is this the same for ALL manufacturers?
This is for a Goodman HP system.
