Payne Heating and Cooling was formed in 1914 in Los Angeles when D.W. Payne began producing a home furnace that was installed in the crawl space.  Over the years, Payne went on to design and produce a number of furnaces for multiple installation options.  It entered the air conditioning industry in the 1950s and expanded into commercial heating and cooling in the 60s. The Carrier Corporation formed the BDP Company in 1974, with Payne being the “P”.  This allowed Payne to expand on a national level with a line of products including air conditioners, gas furnaces, heat pumps, indoor coils, duct-free splits and small packaged systems. 

Payne gas furnaces are up to 96% AFUE and come in single and two-stage options with fixed, multi or variable speed blowers. The Ultra Low NOx gas furnaces meet all CA emissions requirements.  Compatible thermostats are available and some models can be paired with a heat pump to create a dual-fuel system.  

Payne central air conditioners are available with single stage or two-stage compressor operation and provide up to 17 SEER.  Several models are Energy Star qualified and come with up to 10 year parts warranties.  

Many of Payne’s heat pumps can be paired with a gas furnace for a dual-fuel system.  Single stage and two stage compressor operations, up to 17 SEER, with many models meeting Energy Star requirements. 

Fan coils match with the Payne heat pumps to fit any installation such as wall or ceiling while operating quietly and with high efficiency. Some units are designed to be used in tight spaces.  

Payne ductless systems fit residential or light commercial applications.  High wall indoor units have a narrow, slim design made to blend in with the surroundings. Payne heat pumps have  variable speed inverter compressors with up to 42.0 SEER and 15.0 HSPF ratings.

For packaged systems, Payne offers narrow lot heat pumps and air conditioners, gas furnace/air conditioner combination, standard heat pump and standard air conditioner.
