A discontinued member of Ruud’s Achiever Series, the UPNE heat pump is advertised as offering “high efficiency for low cost cooling.” This unit was manufactured in two models, the A-series and B-series. While both perform at 13 SEER and 9.1 HSPF, units can reach as high as 14 SEER when paired with matched systems.
The UPNE has a heating capacity ranging from 18,400 to 58,000 BTU per hour and operates with a single speed, 8-pole fan motor. An elevated base pan and compressor compartment help keep noise levels and vibrations at a minimum during operation.
Additional components of this model include: a galvanized steel cabinet for increased protection, an easy access control panel for simple maintenance, and wraparound outdoor coil consisting of copper tubing and corrosion-resistant aluminum fins to enhance airflow.
