Is a Goodman heat pump reliable?
If installed properly by a competent contractor they are likely no better or worse than any other brand unless you buy a low end builders grade model. Like anything else you get what you pay for.

Is this heat pump approved by your local codes or that of NSPF for use in or around swimming pools? I think not. Not a good idea to mix water and electricity. . Yes you could, if you live in a very hot climate... heat pumps would only be able to heat water to spa temperature if the weather was ver…y hot all the time. It works the reverse of an air conditioner, but relys on outside air to convert cold to hot water. (MORE)
Heat pump - lots more efficient and dramatically cheaper to operate. Heat pump is definitely better as it not only saves electricity bills but is also easy to maintain and install.
A heat pump is a heating system that applies the principle of refrigeraation to heating homes. These principles are: 1. when a gas is quickly compressed, it's temperature rises; 2. when a gas is allowed to expand suddenly it's temperature fallls; 3. when a liquid evaporates, it absorbs heat; and 4. …when a gas condenses it releases heat.

While temperatures above ground change a lot from day to day and season to season, temperatures in the upper 10 feet of the Earth's surface hold nearly constant between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. For most areas, this means that soil temperatures are usually warmer than the air in winter and coole…r than the air in summer. Geothermal heat pumps use the Earth's constant temperatures to heat and cool buildings. They transfer heat from the ground (or water) into buildings in winter and reverse the process in the summer.

A Heat pump is a air conditioning/heating system that utilizes a reversing valve in the refrigerant circut that reverses the flow, and brings the heat in side the home from outdoors
Yes, provided you have the properly matched Goodman evaporator coil in the air handler and the air handler is capable of delivering the correct amount of air flow (cfm) to support the new unit.
By using the ground as the source for heat, much like an airsource heat pump uses air to remove the heat from the air on a cold day a geothermal system using the more consistent earth as the source for pulling heat out of the ground to heat your home in the winter and cool your home in the summer. T…he earths more consistent temperatures allow the system to work better than an air source system and in general the Geothermal system is more effiencent than any other type of heating used in homes.

The heart of the heat pump is the Copeland scroll compressor. The compressor continuously pumps the ozone safe refrigerant from the outside coils to the inside coils. The refrigerant carries the heat with it to be released inside the house. Then the warm air is circulated throughout the home by the …furnace fan. In the summer the flow of the refrigerant reverses and the house is cooled in the same way. The scroll compressors are extremely reliable and virtually trouble free. Copeland is the largest manufacturer of heat pump compressors in the United States. Our Goodman heat pumps are built to last with reliable Copeland scroll compressors. Scroll compressors are very durable because they have fewer parts than the older reciprocating compressors and are also simpler in construction. Instead of pistons and valves which the older compressors had, the scroll compressor has a scroll that orbits to compress the refrigerant. (MORE)
A heat pump's name is a bit deceiving, it's just an appliance that heats water. You still need a normal pump and filter combination to move and filter the water.
For years the name Lennox came up as the most reliable heat pumps and furnaces. The truth nowadays is it is much more important how it is installed and sized than what who makes it. The parts in these heat pumps are very similar- same compressor(most use a Copeland scroll compressor), same gauge cop…per, similar coils, same brand fan and blowers, etc. The most expensive heat pump will fail soon if not installed properly.

The process of pumping down a heat pump is quite simple. First you should switch the unit into air conditioning and put your compound gauge on the suction line. Make sure the unit is running. Then valve off the discharge line and watch your gauge pressure. When it pulls itself down into a vacuum the… heat pump is pumped down within itself. Make sure to valve off the suction line to make sure no refrigerant is released back into the air handling unit. You should now be able to lay some wet rags on the valves to protect them if you desire to sweat the unit away from the line set. (MORE)
The exact same thing it does in the cooling mode, the change between modes of operation does not take place in the compressor.
Turn the heat on then go to the airhandler, if the larger of the 2 copper pipes (insulated one) gets hot it is a heat pump. If it remains at room temperature your airhandler has an electric heater installed in it.
You had a new Goodman 13 seer 4 ton heat pump and exchanger installed 2 wks ago Now you see water under the unit outdoors Is this normal for Florida?
Yes and No. If the compressor inside your outside unit is sweating then "no". If it's from your condensate drainline or a "small" amout of water from the copper lines sweating in the out side unit "yes". . A/C man 40 yrs. :o) a/c dude1
Any brand thermostat will work with any brand of equipment. Matching the proper stat to the application is what matters, not the brand. You should also know most digital/programmable stats nowadays can be configured by the installer to work with most any equipment configuration.
It depends on how much your heat pump is used, checked, serviced, and how well it is maintained. ( Always have your HVAC systems regularly maintained to increase life expectancy !) The usage of a heat pump varies greatly depending on where you live. Other factors can include if it is an air-source …or ground-source. So, a very general ball park life expectancy of a heat pump is anywhere from 15-25 years for the inside components. (MORE)
A heat pump is one part, of a two part heating and cooling system and can be used as the primary heating unit in mild winter locations. They can also be used to supplement other heating systems where the temperatures are sub-freezing for longer time periods. Heat pumps also are used in summer for co…oling. Basically, the way the system works in cooling mode is the same as most any other AC system. When winter comes it essentially runs the system in reverse to produce heat instead of cooling. The advantage is that it is very cheap to run. The biggest two disadvantages are the compressor has to run during both seasons, causing wear... and ... after you get to about 26 degrees F., the heat pump needs auxiliary heat (gas or electric coil) to warm your house. For most warmer climates they are the best choice. Speak with an HVAC professional to determine your region's best heating option. (MORE)

Ground sourced heat pumps simply move energy from one place to another. The process of which is explained on the image below: . An Evaporator (ground loop heat exchanger) transfers the heat from the ground into the fluid circulating in the loop. . At this point the energy in the ground loop tra…nsfers through the evaporator within the heat pump and into a CFC free refrigerant. . A compressor increases the pressure of the working fluid, which causes the temperature to rise. . This energy is transferred over the condenser and into the distribution circuits, where hot water is circulated through the under floor circuits and in turn heating the property. . The refrigerant now passes through an expansion valve and the process starts again. For More Information relating to its installation process please see the link below. Ground source heat pumps are electrically powered systems that tap the stored energy of the greatest solar collector in existence: the earth. These systems(i.e.Ground source Heat pumps) use the earth's relatively constant temperature to provide heating, cooling, and hot water for homes and commercial buildings The heat pump system uses solar energy stored in the earths crust.

Increasing the watts, but the hire the watts the more u pay for ur electric bill. so 120vac will have to be 208vac to increase the wattage.
That's a pretty good unit. Am. Stan. has been producing the trane equipment since about 1978.I'm a Carrier guy, but as long as you stick to a major brand you should be fine. Get three quotes. They should all be pretty comparable. Then always go with whomever you feel you can trust.
the date is on the data plate just about the service valves on the outside condenser. the serial number is how you can read the manufacture date. for example, serial number 9805100565, is read as manufactured in may 1998. this is the for all goodman and amana air conditioning units.
Why doesnt the outside unit Goodman CPLE36-1 central AC unit with heat pump turn on but inside the air blows though it's not cooled and the heat only works on emergency heat?
I would first try to turn the stat up to 80 degrees turn off both breakers, one to the outside condenser and the other to the air handler inside, leave the breakers off for about 30 minutes. then turn the breaker to the out side unit first then 5 minutes later turn on the breaker for the inside unit…. Wait another 5 minutes and turn the stat to 68 and wait a few minutes system should reset and work like it should. If that don't work I would say the starter capacitor is bad. Or the compressor is bad. Or may need to refill the lines. If the first don't work it is time to call a repair man. Hope it works Sincerly Troy H (MORE)
Cost may vary depends on the house size, accessibility, the amount of work involved in duct reworking, disconnecting/connecting gas electricity.

Reverses the flow of refrigerant through the system so it absorbs the heat from the outside ambient air and then rejects the heat through the evaporator and into your duct work.
A valve is used to reverse the flow of freon. In the heat mode, the high or hot side gas is pumped to the indoor unit, The low or cold side is pumped to the outdoor unit. The valve is reversed for the cool mode. Pumping cool gas to the indoor unit and hot gas to the outdoor unit.

Unlike traditional heating systems like furnaces or boilers that burn fuel, heat pumps don't actually PRODUCE heat - instead, they use a special type of refrigerant to move heat from the outside to the inside. You can think of it like an air conditioner in reverse: With an air conditioner, the re…frigerant moves from the compressor, where it is compressed into a hot liquid. The liquid releases its heat outside, aided by the fans on the compressor. Now cooled, it moves into the evaporator, where is absorbs heat around it and turns back into a gas. The evaporator coil gets extremely cold, and when air blows over it and into your house, the air is cooled. A heat pump works the exact same way, but opposite - they pull heat from the outside air and blow it into your home. Heat pumps are effective even when it FEELS cold outside - in fact, many can pull heat from the air even when the temperature is lower than 30 o F! (MORE)
Because your body needs more oxygen and the oxygen is passed through the whole body by red blood cells.
Because the Input energy is not realised or converted fully to the out put. The difference is converted to Heat. mainly due to friction and compression. You can call as efficiency.
Heat pumps don't work well when the temperature outside drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. The way a heat pump works is by absorbing heat from outside and moving inside using the refrigerant. Much like an air conditioner absorbs the heat from inside of your home and moves it out. Therefore the colde…r it is outside the less heat a heat pump can produce. The reason they install electric heat strips is to ensure that when the temperature outside gets below 40 you will still have enough heat available to heat the property. (MORE)

Actually it depends on what Air Handler it is matched up to. Without the complete matched combination it is an inaccurate statement to state 4T.

Why doesnt my Goodman CPLE36 1 central AC unit with heat pump turn on outside but inside it blows air throughout the house though it's not cool air and the heat only works on emergency heat?
The thermostat turns on the heat pump and indoor fan. If an electrical sub circuit to or within the heat pump fails or locks out the heat pump, the outdoor part will not turn on.
