Cabinet Dimensions
Tempstar engineers designed these new 16 SEER heat pumps for improved cooling and heating performance with the same footprint of the 15 SEER models. The TSH6 SmartComfort 16 and NXH6 Performance 16 heat pumps have the same cabinet base dimension as the 15 SEER models. There is a slight increase in the cabinet height for some of the new 16 SEER units (1.5-, 3.5-, 4- and 5-ton sizes).
