The Janitrol CPLT is a discontinued split system heat pump offering up to 13 SEER and 8.6 HSPF. This series of heat pump uses a scroll compressor and condenser coil with aluminum fins and refrigeration-grade copper tubing for efficient home heating and cooling.
The CPLT is available in six models ranging from 2 to 5 tons designed for ground-level or rooftop mount installation. All models feature a compressor sound blanket and quiet condenser fan system to contribute to minimal start-up noises and operation.
A line-in filter drier, heavy gauge galvanized steel cabinet with a polyester powder paint finish, an elevated bottom pan and a defrost control system are additional components of this model.
I built my house in 1993. My contractor talked me into a Janitrol saying he had one in his own home. We put in a four ton unit for a 3900 sq.ft. two story. This unit has worked super for 19 years.I Did no preventative maintenance, just had work done as needed. I know a lot of people in this business and have been in several contruction lawsuits,( I practice law), I firmly believe what another reviewer said, the biggest difference is the installer.
Other CPLT Reviews
While Janitrol has very little presence online, Janitrol�s parent company, Goodman, receives mixed reviews across the web for its HVAC products. Contractors on doityourself.com recommend Goodman products to homeowners looking for a new heat pump. With proper installation and maintenance, they say, these units will last as long as any other brand. The solid, long-term warranty is an additional perk of this unit.
On the other hand, several reviewers on gardenweb.com note that they don’t consider the CPLT a quality piece of heating and cooling equipment. They say the long standard warranty is available only when all of the necessary components are purchased, and mention homeowners will need a substantial warranty for frequent repairs and parts replacements.
