BRAND----------WEBSITE----------RATING

CARRIER--------carrier.com----------<1*

The 52V series units are vertical ptacs in either heat pump models or cooling with electric or hydronic heat coils. Their website is not much help and the warranty on parts other than the compressor is not as good as some other brands.

CENTURY--- century-hvac.com -------5*

This brand is a part of HEAT CONTROLLER. The PTHP heat pumps feature variable speed blowers and electronic expansion valves for quiet and efficient operation. The units are unique in the fact that the entire unit is not sticking outside the wall as the intake and exhaust is provided to the unit through ducts. This provides a better look from the outside of the building. The units are backed by a very good guarantee.
