The Comfortmaker PDX3 dual fuel unit from this company offers 13 SEER and 80 percent annual fuel utilization efficiency. According to the manufacturer, dual-fuel operation offers the ability to run on heat pump or furnace, whichever is most efficient and based on weather conditions. The heat pump features a new defrost system that helps keep coils ice-free for more efficient and reliable operation. The PDX3 models also use environmentally sound R-410A refrigerant. The condenser coils on these products have wire inlet grilles and use vinyl mesh installed on the surface of the coils for extra protection.
