How to choose a Heat Pump System
Heat up the productivity indoors, no matter how cold it gets outside.
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.
Ruud is the only manufacturer to install the Compliant Scroll® Compressor, the industry best, in its entire residential heat pump line.
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, Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, for air conditioners, and the HSPF, 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.
