Google Rating
Based on 4069 reviews

Installing a heat pump in your Coachella Valley home is a great way to save energy all year long. Just as with furnaces and air conditioners, it’s important to understand the efficiency ratings of a heat pump when you’re deciding between various units. Today we’re going to talk about the three different heat pump efficiency ratings and how you can use them to choose a new heat pump for your home!

Heat pump efficiency ratings for the cooling season

Because heat pumps operate almost exactly like air conditioners, they also use the same efficiency ratings. Just like air conditioners, heat pumps are given a SEER rating and an EER rating to describe how efficiently they can remove heat from your home.

Heat pump efficiency ratings for the heating season

Heat pumps use a special efficiency rating to describe how efficiently they operate during the heating season.

How to use heat pump efficiency ratings when choosing a unit

All three of the efficiency ratings listed above can be used to choose the heat pump that is right for your home. Because we live in a warm climate, a higher SEER or EER rating should take precedence over a high HSPF rating if you need to decide between the two.

In addition, it’s always good to look for a heat pump that meets Energy Star’s requirements for a high-efficiency unit.

Remember that high efficiency heat pumps will give you a great return on investment in future energy savings, so it’s best to choose a unit with the highest efficiency ratings that meet your budget for a new system.

If you have any questions about heat pump efficiency ratings, or if you’d like a heating and cooling system serviced or installed in your home, contact Hydes, your Indio, CA, heating and air conditioning contractor.
