The combination of a gas furnace and an electric heat pump helps control heating costs by seamlessly alternating between the two energy sources, depending outdoor conditions. On mild days, the heat pump cost-effectively keeps you warm. When the temperature becomes cold, the system will automatically switch to gas heating and alternate back to electric heat pump operation to maintain your set temperature. Energy-saving performance is maintained through all transitions, and no heat strips are needed.
PRPDF16 units offer efficiency ratings of up to 16.00 SEER, 8.2 HSPF and 81% AFUE**, so you can enjoy consistent savings through every season. You may even be eligible for local utility rebates and other energy incentives.***
By changing the speed of its airflow during start-up, your package unit can create more even temperatures throughout your home, while enhancing efficiency and reducing operating noise.
The ENERGY STAR program is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.
Our unique Tri-Diamond design increases the heat exchanger's surface area, making heat transfer more efficient. This allows for a smaller heat exchanger that requires less energy to operate.
Armstrong Air’s proprietary heat transfer system. The coil features rifled tubing to enhance refrigerant flow, while lanced coil fins increase surface contact between metal and air. They combine for maximum heat transfer and efficiency.

* Due to Allied Air's ongoing commitment to quality, all specifications, ratings and dimensions are subject to change without notice. Consult AHRI directory for the latest performance ratings.
**SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rates electric cooling efficiency. HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) rates electric heating efficiency. AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) is a measure of gas heating efficiency. The higher the energy rating, the more efficiently your unit operations.
***Please consult an Armstrong Air™ professional or your utility company for information on energy incentives in your area.
****Sound ratings vary by product type and capacity, please refer to the technical specifications for specific sound ratings.
