Comparable Models by Napoleon
Model Comparison by Price - Napoleon NT14A versus Napoleon NT13A
The NT13A is a lower SEER-rated model, coming in at 13, while the NT14A is rated at a 14 SEER. However, with this small distinction, the NT13A is still an efficient model with many of the same features of the NT14A.

The next model up is the NT16A, which is very similar to the NT14A. However, as the premium model, the NT16A has a higher SEER rating of 16, and is, therefore, able to provide more cooling power while being energy efficient. Both models feature micro-channel condenser coils that cut back on the amount of chlorine-free refrigerant used. Each unit can also be sized to fit your home since they range from 1.5 to 5 tons.
