Heat Pumps

Heat pump systems provide versatile heating, cooling, and humidity control—they move heat outside your home in the summer and pull heat into your home in the winter. For those in moderate climates, where the temperature doesn't regularly drop below freezing, a heat pump can be the answer to your home comfort needs.

What to Look for in a Heat Pump
comfort-features-icon
Comfort Features

Heat pumps vary in the number of stages or speeds they offer. Different speeds, or stages, can affect your comfort and the consistency of indoor temperature. The most basic is a single-stage heat pump, with airflow on or off, which can cause fluctuations to your indoor temperature and comfort. Two-stage models offer high- and low-stage heating and cooling to more efficiently heat or cool your space when outdoor weather changes to very cold or very hot conditions. These advanced features can provide more consistent comfort levels than a single-stage model. Premium, variable-speed heat pumps have multiple stages for more precise temperature control and more consistent comfort.

Humidity Control

One way to dramatically improve your home’s comfort is to keep indoor humidity levels steady throughout the year. Two-stage and variable speed heat pumps provide better control because they operate for a longer period of time at lower speeds and use less energy. These pull more humidity out of the air than models with a single-stage compressor.

Sound Performance

Variable-speed and two-stage models provide ultra-quiet operation compared to models with single-stage compressors. In addition, heat pumps that include sound blankets and our Silencer System II™ design can further reduce sound levels.

energy-savings-icon
Energy Savings

Heat pumps are rated by their Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF), their Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and their Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). These ratings are similar to miles per gallon (MPG) for a car: the higher the rating, the more energy-efficient the system.

Overall Efficiency <p>Efficiency within a model group will tend to vary by the size (capacity) of the unit. Some products, like furnaces, may also be affected by installation orientation (horizontal, upflow, or downflow) or even by the nozzle used in installation, as is the case with boilers and oil furnaces. The efficiency of an air conditioner or heat pump can even be affected by the furnace or fan coil it relies on inside the home to move air. Products that fall into the “Select sizes ENERGY STAR<sup>®</sup> qualified” category include within their model group some non-qualified units due to either size or potential installation factors.</p> info

What Does a Heat Pump Do?

Wondering, what is a heat pump? You’re not alone – it’s a common question. An air source electric heat pump is a versatile heating and cooling system that utilizes an air handler to move heat from one place to another. In the summer, a heat pump system moves heat from inside your house to an outdoor unit, efficiently cooling your home. In the winter months, a heat pump reverses the process, drawing heat from outside air (yes, even when it is cold outside there is heat in the air) and releasing it inside your home.

The Difference Between a Heat Pump and Air Conditioner

A heat pump is an alternative to an air conditioner. As cooling systems, an air conditioner and a heat pump system are very similar, drawing heat from the air inside your home and releasing it through an outdoor unit. But, unlike an air conditioner, a heat pump can reverse the process, heating your home by collecting heat from seemingly cold outside air and releasing it inside.
