Customer Question

If I have a RUUD 3 ton heat pump HVAC, with a single stage compressor,
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: Sorry. Starting over. If I have a RUUD 3 ton heat pump with a single stage compressor, can that single stage compressor be replaced by a dual scroll compressor?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No

My name is Billy. This is not an issue.

You will likely have some piping changes and mount configuration, but as far as operation the scroll will work.

If you have more specific questions on it just let me know.
