The 2-4 ton Ruud 14 SEER RQPW Package Dual Fuel units feature earth-friendly R-410A refrigerant. A
Package Dual Fuel Unit is a Package Heat Pump with a gas furnace
installed in the heat section instead of electric heat that is in a
standard Package Heat Pump. Generally, heating is satisfied by operation
of the Heat Pump above a outdoor temperature balance point and below
the outdoor temperature balance point the gas furnace is utilized to
satisfy the heat requirement. This hybrid package system allows for both
comfort and energy savings. It is more cost effective above the balance
point to run electricity and the heat pump provides adequate supply air
temperature at these outdoor temperatures to assure comfort. Below the
balance point it is more economical and provides better comfort to
utilize gas heat. All models feature Copeland® Scroll® compressors for This platform provides you with a full line of capacities that are each AHRI-certified. The design is certified by CSA International.
The Scroll® Compressor
All of our residential package units – regardless of efficiency level
–feature the Scroll® Compressor. The scroll compressor uses a more
advanced technology than traditional reciprocating compressors. The compressor is hermetically sealed and incorporates internal high temperature motor overload protection and
durable insulation on the motor windings. It is externally mounted on rubber grommets to reduce vibration and noise. They have fewer moving parts, and they are quieter, more efficient, and longer lasting.
Durable Cabinet with Louvered Condenser Compartment
Our cabinets have a powder painted finish that protects them from the
harshest weather extremes. And our louvered condenser compartment is the
best in the industry for protecting the condenser coil against yard
hazards and weather extremes. There is a One-piece top with a deep flange to help keep water out of
unit. Access panels have “weep holes” and channels to further help
manage water run-off. Side and down discharge options available on all
Grille/Fan Motor Mount
Our motor mount helps protect the fan motor from the elements for longer
life. Its design dependability helps reduce vibration and noise
Located inside the easily accessible furnace compartment is the control
box, draft inducer motor, in-shot gas burners, the gas valve and
manifold. Control box operational controls are “up front” for quick
access and service diagnostics. The draft inducer motor is specially
designed to quietly provide combustion air while simultaneously venting
outdoors the combustion products from the furnace heat exchanger. In
addition to the draft inducer motor, the in-shot gas burners, gas valve
and manifold efficiently regulate the flow of gas for combustion. These
new gas/electric units also feature direct-spark ignition and remote
flame sensors for added dependability and efficiency
Matched Blower/Evaporator Coil Unit
The blower is responsible for the flow of air into your
ductwork. It has been designed to match the evaporator coil and other
system components for maximum efficiency and quiet operation.
Tubular Heat Exchanger
Our new package gas electric units feature a tubular heat exchanger
design. Tubular heat exchangers are more efficient and durable than
older-style clamshell heat exchangers. The factory standard heat
exchanger is backed by a ten year limited warranty. All RRRL models
feature a stainless steel heat exchanger which is backed by a limited
