    Depends, what size unit do you need?
    Seen a lot of folks get burned bad on used equipment “deals” over the years.

    Probably not. Will the seller guarantee it is the right size for your house and that it is properly commissioned when installed? And that it is matched with the right size coil and blower?

    Or did you just want me say “yes?”

    How do you know that? Is it simply what is in your house already?

    How did you come to this conclusion?
    I’d say no, it’s not a good deal. And as far as the warranty, you’ll need some luck getting it honored. At best there will be no labor warranty.

    What is the age and size and model number of the ID coil section, is the indoor section running on R22 now? Need to be careful when sizing a 14 SEER OD unit to even a 10-12 SEER indoor unit, especially on Heat Pumps as the coil may be physically smaller ( ID coil ) and it’s hard to get the charge adjustment correct.

    I'm sure it is a good deal for someone, just not sure who. Probably the seller.

    I'd buy the zero turn for a dollar instead

    It has a 10 year warranty to the person that first had it installed. It won't carry over to you.

    Are you the same person that’s over on the DIY site asking about used units?
    Someone over there has the same link to the same unit as you did here. They were also asking about a 1.5 ton heat pump. Didn’t seem to understand sizing or what they needed very well.
