unit may not work as components don't have the same design pressure but if suppliedwith 2 orrifice it may be a universal unit.

Nordyne (Wh makes Westinghouse)makes this unit for use with R410A or R22 but they are different units.

The unit you have is designed for use with R22 only

The orifices are for using with different R22 outdoor units

You would need the WIFXV-60EW4E for R410

Not saying you could not use it and get by, but Nordyne does not recommend as the design pressure on the R410 is about 60% higher than the R22.

Since this unit is designed for use with R22 you will chance premature leaking due to the operating pressures.
