I currently have 3T Goodman heat pump with a hole in the compressor. A friend is replacing his 3T straight cool system with higher SEER equipment.
Can I use his straight cool condensor with my heat pump air handler if I replace the thermostat? Based on my research both are 10 SEER units.
We primarily use gas to heat, but would like to use the emergency heat strips as backup.
Can I wire this up with a straight cool thermostat and activate the heat strips when the thermostat is set to heat.
