Goodman established itself as the largest HVAC manufacturer in the US by producing high-quality, efficient equipment and providing it to homeowners at a great value. The GSZ14 heat pump has a nominal SEER rating of 14 and a minimum HSPF of 8.2 to ensure efficient comfort regardless of your application. The savings don't stop at energy costs; the GSZ140481's design allows it to be quickly installed and serviced. It includes advanced components that protect the coil and compressor to ensure reliable operations and peace of mind. Become a heat pump household today, and enjoy efficient comfort from a single piece of equipment through all four seasons.
Advanced Coil Design
The condenser coil of this heat pump is designed with aluminum fins and rifled copper tubing to maximize efficiency. The fins and rifling serve to increase surface area, allowing the heat transfer capabilities of the materials to shine.
Goodman takes great pride in providing comfort that doesn't disrupt your home. The louvered top and three-bladed condenser fan of the GSZ140481 were designed to reduce noise levels without compromising performance. This model also has a high-capacity discharge muffler to curtail vibrational noise.
A biflow filter drier is installed in the liquid line of this heat pump. It serves two important purposes: removing moisture and trapping impurities. This prevents corrosion, freezing, and blockages that can negatively impact the operation of the heat pump.
The cabinet of the GSZ140481 is built to last. Galvanized steel construction, a durable powder paint finish, and a steel coil guard protect your equipment from wear and tear, increasing its longevity. Every Goodman heat pump also passes a 500-hour corrosion resistance test before leaving the factory.
Goodman's SmartShift technology, combined with ambient and coil temperature sensors, gives this unit a quiet and effective defrost system. SmartShift also helps to prevent short-cycling, increasing the efficiency of defrost operations.
This unit utilizes a high-efficiency scroll compressor to provide refrigerant flow. Scroll compressors are renowned for operating more smoothly and reliably than traditional compressors.
Goodman installed two layers of compressor protection in the GSZ140481. A suction accumulator collects excess liquid refrigerant, preventing it from flooding and damaging the compressor during operation. A crankcase heater ensures that the compressor stays well-oiled by maintaining a compressor temperature that discourages oil migration.
The US Department of Energy regulates minimum efficiency standards for central air conditioners and heat pumps based on geographic regions. We are required to abide by these regulations when selling products, and take this responsibility seriously. The standards depend on the rated efficiency of the entire system, not the nominal efficiencies of individual components.
