• Goodman 18 SEER R-410A Refrigerant — DSZC18 Heat Pump Price

    High-efficiency heat pumps offer homeowners the best of both worlds – reliable and efficient heating in the cold months and affordable cooling when the temperatures get hot and sticky.  Walter in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. recently had a Goodman heat pump installed and he passed along the complete Goodman 18 SEER R-410A Refrigerant — DSZC18 heat pump price to us.  We hope you’ll benefit from this information and from all the HVAC prices we gather.  Walter writes:

    “We just completed a renovation of our home here to prepare it for full-time occupancy following my retirement from the Air Force.  As part of the work, we installed a Goodman DSZC18 heat pump in the middle of last summer and so far the performance has been outstanding.  We’ve used it now in hot weather and in cold and it has kept our home very comfortable while also lowering our utility bills by about 17%.  We opted for the most efficient unit we could find because we plan on staying in this home for the duration and want to save money in the long run – especially as fuel costs go up.  The details of this heat pump include:

    • 18 SEER for cooling and  9.2HSPF for heating, which makes it Energy Star rated. Plus we’ll receive the federal tax credit.
    • Limited lifetime warranty on the compressor, 10 years on all other parts.
    • Compatible with a backup source of heat such as a gas furnace.
    • ComfortNet Communications is an accessory which we opted to include.
    • 2-state Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor.
    • New R-410A refrigerant is better for the environment.
    • Copeland ComfortAlert self-diagnosing control board.
    • High-efficiency blower motor.
    • Goodman Sound Control Top.
    • Sturdy steel cabinet with features to protect internal components from damage.

    We received quotes on 2 different sizes.  They were:

    Goodman DSZC18 3 Ton, 36,000 Btu heat pump, $3,699, plus $2350 installation.  Total: $6.149

    Goodman DSZC18 4 Ton, 48,000 Btu heat pump, $4,199, plus $2200 installation. Total: $6,399

    The two contractors differed on the right size unit and both stuck to their guns.  I ended up choosing the larger unit because it does get hot here and I don’t want the a/c struggling to keep up with the heat and humidity.”

    Contractors sometimes do differ on sizing the correct unit.  Sizing is part science and part art.  They have detailed manuals that take into consideration your home’s size, layout, number of windows and other factors.  Even then, if the correct size falls somewhere in the middle, as it often does, they have to use their judgment to make the best recommendation.

    That’s just one more reason to have a qualified contractor come out to give you quotes on heat pump prices.  They’ll make sure your system will keep your home comfortable in all seasons.  And their professional installation will have your system working well with all its components to provide the highest operating performance and lowest utility costs.
