    Who makes the highest seer Heat Pump (Air Cooled)

    I'm trying to find out what manufacture currently has the highest seer heat pump 2 ton unit with a AHRI Certification.
    Thanks in advance.

    Why not go to the following AHRI web site and play with the parameters to find it?

    http://www.ahridirectory.org/ahridir...ultSearch.aspx

    I would suggest starting with SEER = 19, HSPF = 10, EER = 13 and BTUH = 22000 Min and 27000 Max Cooling to by far exceed the Energy Star minimum tax credit requirements of:

    Split Systems:
    HSPF >= 8.5, EER >= 12.5, SEER >= 15

    I just left my local R.E.Michels branch. They are displaying a Broan Heat Pump rated at 22 SEER. It is a split system with the compressor empoying inverter technology. I don,t know much about Broan. Maybe other members of the forum will comment on Broan quality and performance.
    Take Care.
    Stay safe.

    Control system.

    Some of those inverter systems are communicating.
    They probably also teach you how to check if the system is working properly.

    ...
    That comes up on AHRI search suggested. It appears from parameters that maybe

    BROAN=FRIGIDAIRE=MAYTAG(?)=NORDYNE=NUTONE=TAPPAN=W ESTINGHOUSE

    That sound likely that all those brands are the same? Their parameters look identical to me.

    Other manufacturers make 21 seer units. Probaly not as pricy as the IQ drive, but not cheap.
    And seer is not the only number you need to look at with a heat-pump.
    BTU output, hspf and cop are important factors.

    I have a Nordyne brochure that says their IQ Drive heat pump is 24.5 Seer.

    Highest SEER HP

    Go to http://www.tappan.net/ac-23.asp. It's manufactured by Nordyne, www.nordyne.com. You can click on any of the Premium brands listed, including Tappan, Maytag, Westinghouse, and Frigidaire, to find a Dealer in your area. Nordyne requires Dealer Certification before selling these units.
    I've been certified, and can tell you that this is a fantastic bit of industry-leading technology. Operating costs can compare to closed loop geothermal, with better comfort features, due to the modulating capacity and outputs.
    Hope this helps.
