Goodman’s CPRT is a now discontinued R-22 refrigerant, split-system heat pump offering up to 13 SEER and 8.6 HSPF. Designed for ground-level or rooftop mounting, this series comes in 2- to 5-ton capacities with a heating and cooling capacity of up to 54,000 BTUH.
The CPRT features a heavy-gauge galvanized-steel cabinet coated with a gray powder-paint finish and louvered metal guard to protect the interior components and increase the unit’s longevity. Additional components include: a high-efficiency Copeland scroll compressor, condenser fan system, discharge line muffler, automated defrost control, and brass service valves. Complementing accessories, such as a variety of thermostats and electric heating kits, also are available for this series.
I went for some time without sufficient cooling. My system has red valves and runs through my hot water tank. I just found out that the valves have to be set for each season (That is odd for a heat pump.) I found a good reliable service firm who took care of my problem. It now cools adequately. I am running at close to 71 degrees. I am on my second compressor. The first was replaced under the warranty. When the unit trips on, it isn't the quietest in the world.
Other CPRT Reviews
While few reviews for the CPRT can be found on the web due to the age of the unit (the most recent material for it dates to 2006), homeowner forums across the web post very mixed feelings about Goodman heat pumps in general.
Several posts on hvac-talk.com air complaints about the quality of Goodman HVAC products, including their noisy operation and the company’s poor customer service. Some homeowners also note that they have been displeased with Goodman technicians, citing examples of technicians making repeated wrong diagnoses at very high costs.
Despite the negative reviews, homeowners like the prices of the Goodman units and many are willing to take a chance on these units. Contractors on hvac-talk.com also believe Goodman heat pumps will work as well as any other brand with good installation.
