Hi,

thank you.

Welcome to the forums.

Not sure what you are asking for here.

A 5 ton heat pump system is a condenser and an air handler.
It can supply heating or cooling.
If you want it multizone..... you add zone dampers to a properly designed duct system.

If you are asking can you add a heat pump condneser to your existing air handler..... possibly.
It may require replacing the evaporator coil.

hi PJMAX,
In fact, I would like to add a fluid(R-410A) to water exchanger condenser with a fluid valve that could select one or the other condenser(air handler or fluid to water).? Is it feasible?

The fluid to water exchanger will be used to heat the water from my radiant floor.
thanks.
Daniel

Then what you need to look at is a heat pump boiler.
It would be a unit that was completely inside the house and self contained like a water heater.

Ok,
On spring of 2019 I installed the 5 ton central heat pump.
Is it possible to install a selector valve on the R-410 lines inside the house to select either one of: air handler or boiler condensers ?

Best regards!

Daniel

Yes, it is possible. But would require extensive engineering and would be extremely expensive.

This: SpacePak | Hydronic Heating And Cooling might be close ?
I don't know anything about them, just a link from HPAC engineering magazine...
