The Frigidaire FT4BE is a split-system heat pump with an efficiency of 15 SEER and 8.5 HSPF. Specific matches and sizes of the FT4BE heat pump meet Energy Star efficiency requirements. The unit features high- and low-pressure switches and a liquid line filter dryer to increase compressor life. The corrosion-resistant, all-aluminum coil is protected by a metal louvered condenser guard. A galvanized steel cabinet is coated with a corrosion-resistant polyester urethane finish and features a removable top grille assembly for ease of service. The FT4BE used R-410A refrigerant.
Unit is still under warranty but have had the service people here numerous times. Warranty covers parts only but not the labor. Would not recommend anyone to buy one.
Have had this unit for 2 years and 10 months. Have had to have it repaired 4 times costing me $736.00 in labor charges and have been told by the authorized service company that it still needs more parts. Called Frigidaire and was given the runaround. Told to call Nordyne, Nordyne told me to call Frigidaire. Nordyne also told me to call the installer. The installer has nothing to do with the building of the unit. This unit is a "lemon" and no one will stand up and take responsibility for all of the problems I am having with it.

Very good equipment. Our energy bills are great, our comfort level is very good and we've had no problems with the service and operation of the system. Highly recommend this brand.

"FRIGIDARE SAVED ME $$$"
We had a new Frigidaire FT4BE-042K heat pump installed early last year. Contractor recommended this model FT4BE-042K because it qualified for a energy tax credit. It has saved us approximately 30% on our monthly energy bills and has made our home feel more comfortable due to that fact it has a 2 stage compressor and can de-humidify as well as cool the home. In the winter it heats well and the air feels very warm compared to our old heat pump, overall we are extremely pleased with frigidaire and the warranty of 10 years just adds more peace of mind.
