My house was built with the unit, split heater ac unit. I thought great, a carrier, my last house was built with a Singer. The Singer was stellar compared to this. Compressor went in two years, oh yea, it was covered under warranty, but cost me 900.00 to warranty. Then 2 years later, second compressor, no warranty cost me 1100.00. Now 3 years later this pos is not working again. Never will I ever have anything that has Carrier on it, junk, junk, junk. Don't buy, the installer's mechanic said flat out that they were junk, but my builder got a deal on them and that's why they installed them, he said they quit installing them years ago when they changed to some off the wall Chinese compressor. Make sure your compressor is a Tecumseh or Copeland.
