Intertherm says that its split-system heat pumps are manufactured to provide reliability, high efficiency, maximum airflow and quiet operation. Intertherm designs its systems specifically for manufactured homes, and also offers an array of thermostats and other accessories to accompany its products.
What are the 10 Best Heat Pumps?
13 SEER R-410A Split-System Heat Pump
The 13 SEER heat pump is equipped with a full-metal jacket with pre-coat paint, increasing its resistance to weather damage. The heat pump features a time/temperature defrost and muffler to minimize operational sound. Either brazed or quick connect connections are available.
14-16 SEER R-410A Split-System Heat Pump
Additional features of the 14 and 16 SEER split system are the lubricated motor, one-piece top design and composite base designed to mute sound. The 14 SEER unit has a single-stage compressor protected by a high pressure switch, while the 16 SEER unit comes with high/low pressure switches and a two-stage cooling, Ultra-tech scroll compressor for enhanced efficiency.
13-15 SEER Packaged System Heat Pumps (small footprint)
The 13 and 15 SEER systems, with their lubricated motors, are compact, wire-guarded and have weather- and rust-resistant coatings. The 15 SEER unit is particularly quiet, according to the manufacturer, due to its sound blanket and swept-wing fan blade. That unit also comes standard with an outdoor thermostat.
13 SEER Packaged System Heat Pumps (large footprint)
The large footprint heat pumps, which also come with lubricated motors, are likewise wire-guarded and protected from rust and weather extremes. High/low pressure switches, a 5-minute restart time delay and a suction accumulator protect the compressor, while the demand defrost feature ensures only necessary defrosting is performed. Whether mounted on slabs or rooftops, the heat pump can provide airflow various ways.
Intertherm generally offers a 1-year warranty on parts and labor and a 5-year compressor warranty. An optional parts and labor plan can extend protection. The small footprint 15 SEER unit comes with a 10-year standard warranty.
