"Upgraded after 15 years"
We upgraded to a Arcoair heat pump last year after having an Arcoair A/C unit for 16 years. The A/C worked great but got hit by lightening so we upgraded to a hp and a variable speed indoor gas furnace. We get the best of both. It is quiet and our utilities are much less. I think part of the savings is because the new one is a heat pump and part of the savings is because it is newer and higher efficiency rated. The new one looks pretty cool too.

If you want heat in summer and cold in winter and have lots of time and money, I still would not recommend this unit: I was never so happy as to sit with a torch and saws all and cut this unit to scrap metal. We bought it with our new home and there where 4 of them installed when the homes where built 14 years ago. Mine was number three to be taken off the block! Every year was more money, starting with the Heat pump it self, compressor. Heat strips, Many switches, both fan motors outside and inside. I also got to have it charged many times over the years. As I look back on the unit I am not sure why I kept sinking money in to it. But now it is small pieces, I even took the time to ask the last neighbor that owns one if he would like a few old parts that may help him keep his operating. He is an ac man and also works on his unit a lot so it is a little cheaper on him. They offered to haul the unit off for me, but I refused, as I wanted a little pleasure with the unit before I hauled it off to be melted down. Please never purchase a unit with this name. pyha036ge. I cut it up slowly as to enjoy it. At the end or last year of so called operation. I had to wait until it was really hot then turn the thermostat down to zero and let it run for a few hours, you see when shut the unit off it would not come back on for 24 hours. As I was tearing it apart I now see what the main Problem is. The last two letters of the model “ge” . I have experience before as my new home came with all new ge products and the ac unit is the last item made by ge in my home. Most broke down 1st year and by year 5 I junked and replaced it with a better brand units. If they where given these units away I would not pay the ac Man to install one! I bought a goodman, and It cools great.
