Haier America, headquartered in New York, offers heating and cooling units for both residential and commercial applications. The company offers four heat pumps that utilize R410A environmentally-friendly refrigerant, and three models that use R22 refrigerant, or Freon. These Freon cooled units are for replacement purposes only; customers who are buying a completely new system should look at units that use R410A, as the Environmental Protection agency is phasing out use of R22.

Haier Packaged Unit Heat Pumps
Haier packaged unit heat pumps are available in four models, all of which use R410A. The models in this series all achieve a SEER rating of 14 and an HSPF of 8.0. The four models vary in their BTU capacity, ranging from 24,000 to 60,000. Each model features a scroll compressor. The airflow on each heat pump can be converted to either horizontal or downflow.
Haier Dry Charged R22 Outdoor Units
Haier offers, for replacement purposes, three heat pumps that use R22 refrigerant. These models are available in BTU capacities of 24,000, 30,000 and 60,000. This series comes with a reciprocating compressor. These heat pumps can achieve a SEER rating of 13 and an HSPF of 7.8. The fan motor is completely protected by the unit's construction.
Care and Maintenance of Haier Heat Pumps
Most HVAC companies recommend a yearly maintenance check-up to make sure your unit is functioning at top capacity. Haier notes that its heat pumps undergo tests before shipment to check for leakage. The base pan has drainage holes, so water can drain away and thereby prevent unit rusting. Access panels on the Haier R22 heat pumps are easily removed for cleaning and service calls. The R410A models have service ports that can be accessed without removing any panels.
The Haier R22 dry charged heat pumps carry a five-year limited compressor warranty. The R410A heat pumps offer a 10-year limited compressor warranty, as well as a 10-year limited parts warranty. Customers can register their heat pumps online at the Haier website.
