Heat pumps are among the most cost-effective HVAC systems on the market. These systems are designed to both cool your home in the summer and warm it in the winter.
Unfortunately, a heat pump is just as likely to fall victim to damage as an air conditioner or a furnace. With that in mind, you'll want to know what kind of heat pump repair and installation options you have available to you long before something goes amiss.

Your heating pump serves your home all year round. While that kind of service keeps your home comfortable, it can also expose your unit's many parts to early forms of wear and tear. If you're not able to get ahead of this kind of damage, you may find yourself contending with:

The Department of Energy requires all air-conditioning and heating equipment manufacturers to evaluate and rate the efficiency of their equipment on a seasonal basis. These ratings are known as the SEER or, Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, for air conditioners, and the HSPF or, Heating Seasonal Performance Factor, for heating equipment.
Heat pumps use both numbers. The higher the SEER or HSPF rating, the more efficient the heat pump. High-efficiency units cost more. But since operating costs are lower, the payback period may be shorter than you realize. A high SEER/HSPF heat pump also can add value to your home which is important to today's energy-conscious home buyers.
Absolutely. Look for features such as a louvered, galvanized steel cabinet to protect the condensing unit from outdoor hazards. And make sure the cabinet is powder-painted with a high-quality enamel for improved durability and appearance.
These affordable and high-efficiency models are designed to both keep your home comfortable and lower your bills.
Naturally, energy efficiency is important. But when making your selection, remember low operating costs are little comfort if service and repair bills are high. Don't be sold on energy efficiency alone.
