The 5 Series 506A11

The perfect balance
5 series The perfect balance

As part of the 5 Series, the 506A11 Outdoor Packaged System carries some of our best features and efficiencies. Its advanced components offer a level of comfort and savings that's far greater than any ordinary system. It delivers efficiencies as high as 27.6 EER for cooling and 4.6 COP for heating as quietly and efficiently as our indoor units.

Whole Home Comfort
Indoor Comfort from an Outdoor System

This model is unique in that all its components are housed outdoors, which makes it perfect for homes with limited space for equipment. Although it sits outside, the Outdoor Packaged System isn't anything like the noisy air conditioners and air-source heat pumps you're used to.

Amazing Efficiency
Dual capacity for Amazing Efficiency

While traditional conditioning systems typically run at one speed, the 506A11 operates in two speeds — high and low for greater comfort and efficiency. It runs most often in low speed keeping your home consistantly comfortable but will switch to high speed when the home needs more conditioning.

Comfortable from anywhere

More than efficient

The 5 Series surpasses 27.6 EER in cooling and 4.6 COP in heating. Thanks to the consistent temperature of the earth, geothermal is more than twice as efficient at cooling than any ordinary heat pump or air conditioner and more than five times as efficient at heating than any traditional fossil fuel furnace.
