    Copeland compressor in Waterfurnace ATV045

    I need some professional input. The 2 stage Copeland CTH1-0275-CSV-280 compressor goes to ground. All I can find are newer, single stage Copeland compressors with the same part number. Can a newer single stage be used to replace my dead 2 stage? I feel like there would be an issue, but I would rather buy a new compressor than whole new unit.

    I appreciate your feedback

    Copeland quit making that compressor some time ago, plus the refrigerant is R-22--HIGH DOLLARS. Your best bet is to contact your area WaterFurnace dealer and have a current vintage Series 5, or better Series 7 unit installed. The Series 5 is much more efficient than the ATV045 and the Series 7 is even better.

    What do you mean: "goes to ground" ?

    So long as the system's controls are modified to only utilize full-capacity operation of the system - then: yes you can.

    Who are you and how did you come to be doing this sort of work?

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Thank you for replying. I ended up ordering a 5 series.

    Sorry, thats how my family has always said grounded/short circuit. I am not an HVAC professional, just a home owner. Thank you very much for your insight!
