- Good insulation around the compressor for quiet operation
- High and Low-pressure switches - this should be standard in all air conditioner and heat pumps. It will save you if there is ever a failure of a component or a refrigerant loss. These two switches basically protect the compressor if there is a problem
- Charged for 15′ of line-set. This feature is a departure from what manufacturers include with air conditioner and heat pump systems. Typical with R-22 refrigerant is enough refrigerant for a line set of 25′.
- Bi-Flow liquid line filter drier which is another industry standard
