How To Choose the Right Heat Pump For Your Home
- Heat Pump Energy efficiency + Performance
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) establishes benchmarks for various heating and cooling systems, based on lowest energy consumption. These are measured and featured on all heat pumps based on the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). The ENERGY STAR (R) label identifies which heat pumps comply with the DOE’s energy efficiency standard. Compare heat pumps based on the SEER. The higher the number, the less energy it consumes to emit cool air. Eighteen SEER is currently an optimal benchmark to shop for when buying a heat pump.
Because the DOE’s minimum energy conservation standard for heat pumps continues to change, always check with a heating contractor or the DOE website for the latest SEER standard. On the warmth mode, heat pumps generate heat at a high efficiency and performance level, measured according to its HSPF.
- Type of Refrigerants
Another vital feature to include on the shopping list is the type of refrigerant a heat pump uses. Certain refrigerants, such as R-410A improve compressors and heat pumps’ overall resilience to outdoor extremities. Heat pumps, using refrigerant, R22 release chlorine into the atmosphere and abbreviate a heat pump’s lifecycle. (These systems are being phased out by the DOE in 2020.)
The parts replacement warranty happens to be another vital shopping criteria to compare on a heat pump.
In general, heat pumps and compressors accompany separate warranties. Prior to buying a heat pump, evaluate the parts and replacement warranty to comparable priced models.
- Noise Factor
Some heat pumps operate quietly, designed in foam to muffle noise. Because noise factor is hard to compare, consult a heating and cooling contractor who specializes in heat pump installations to assess noise factor.
Common Misconceptions About Heat Pumps
- MYTH: Heat pumps emit hot air, only.
Heat pumps work like heating and cooling system. During warmer temperatures, the heat pump emits hot air outside, reversing the transfer of cold air outdoors in the winter. Heat pumps do not work for temperatures below 35 degrees Fahrenheit. However, these heating and cooling systems conserve energy as the heat pump generates up to three times more heat than the energy it actually consumes.
- MYTH: Switching over to a heat pump guarantees a definite energy savings.
Upgrading an HVAC system to a heat pump does not guarantee an automatic savings. Air Rescue asserts that four factors are attributable to a heat pump’s efficiency: Climate combined with the electricity rate, fuel efficiency of both the heat pump and HVAC system – all influence overall energy savings.
- MYTH: New heat pumps and air conditioners are not any more energy efficient than older models.
On the contrary, newer heat pumps and air conditioners offer substantial efficiency to outmoded models. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures the cooling efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps. A higher SEER rating affords better efficiency. Units more than 8 years old generally have a SEER rating of 7.0 or less. Meanwhile, a 12.0 SEER is a common feature among high-efficiency models.
- MYTH: All Tampa Bay HVAC contractors provide the same caliber of heat pump installation and maintenance service.
