Last time here on the comfort-corner blog, we discussed heat pumps and the different types of heat pumps that are out there. To refresh: a heat pump is an energy efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioning, because they use electricity to transfer air from one space to another, like hot air turns to cold air. While there are different types of heat pumps (air, mini-split, and geothermal), within those different categories you have what’s known as high efficiency heat pumps. These heat pumps still do the same thing as what regular heat pumps do, the only difference is that high efficiency heat pumps have a higher Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) number and a higher Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). The higher the SEER rating and the higher the HSPF number, the more efficient your heat pump is going to be. If system is up in age, you’re looking at about a 10 SEER rating. Not so efficient, which can lead to more breakdowns, more maintenance work, and more money spent. Instead of just talking about high efficiency heat pumps in general, I’m going to talk about specific units from different brands of heating and cooling manufactures.
All of the information I’ve just listed above can be found on each manufactures websites that will be listed below.
