Other Heritage 16 Reviews
A reviewer on gardenweb.com considering a new heat pump asks whether or not the Heritage 16 would provide ample humidity control in a southern region with mild winters. Several professionals on the site suggest the homeowner can't go wrong with the American Standard brand, adding that this unit is a quality heat pump. Others state that in this region the Heritage 15, with an appropriate thermostat and controls, can provide ample humidity control compared to the higher efficiency unit. Other professional contractors note that the heat pump's electronic demand defrost is a helpful featured compared to time/temperature defrost methods.
Many of the problems with the Heritage 16 cited on other forums seem to stem from installation issues. For example, a homeowner on hvac-talk.com has a newly installed heat pump that only puts out hot, never cold, air. Contractors on the site, after a series of questions, ultimately agree that the homeowner is dealing with a wiring issue that the installing technician needs to resolve.
