Bryant 288BNV Heat Pump.

Taking Comfort and Quiet to Whole New Level

Small but powerful, this unique heat pumps uses inverter technology and a rotary compressor to deliver variable-speed control. That translates to highly efficient heating and cooling operation optimized to current conditions down to 25% capacity for ultra-quiet, even-temperature comfort. What’s more, it can provide exceptional summer dehumidification.
