The Maytag® PSH4BE Heat Pump Will Now Include Micro-Channel Condensing Coils

All-aluminum coils are more durable and efficient than traditional coils.

Maytag PSH4BE Heat Pump Installed

St. Louis, September 19, 2013 Maytag® will now include an all-aluminum Micro-Channel condensing coil in the PSH4BE and MSH4BE 14/15-SEER heat pumps. Although the use of Micro-Channel coils in air conditioners is common practice, Maytag® is the first heating and air conditioning manufacturer to use this dependable coil in heat pumps.

The use of Micro-Channel coils in a heat pump has never been done before, says Matt Lattanzi, director of product management at Maytag®. We know these coils will greatly enhance our heat pump units performance while making the units more compact.

These coils are already available in Maytag® air conditioners through 16 SEER, and will improve this heat pump model in the following ways,

  • Durability: Micro-Channel coils are more durable than traditional coils due to their consistent construction.
  • Size: Condensing units with Micro-Channel coils can be reduced in weight by 6-7 percent and, in some models, may be 4 inches shorter.
  • Refrigerant: These coils use 42 percent less refrigerant than traditional coils.
  • Heat Transfer: Micro-Channel coils facilitate heat transfer better than traditional coils. This means that units that include these coils can be smaller and more efficient.
