I have a chance to get a heat pump that was in use for two years before the
switched to a gas furnace. The unit has been sitting in a basement for the
seven years and wondering if this unit is worth installing since it has been
Lets see....is it sized right for your home? Dunno? ARe you SURE its the
size he states? Can you read the model and serial number and tell? IT tells
the age of the unit too on the serial...
Is it sealed? Open? Lines open? Lines closed?
If its been sitting, open its toast...period.
Of course...I cant figure out why the installers didnt remove it, since
thats required in some areas..
I agree, it is probably junk. I would not touch it unless the lines were
brazed shut, vac'd down and filled with nitrogen. I doubt it this was done.
The other question I have is, why was it removed? If it was me I would have
left the heat pump in place and added the gas for back up, or for weather
that is too cold for the heat pump. Hell, he owned it already, sounds like
he must have added AC too.
Does not make sense to me!
