What Impacts Our Heat Pump Ratings?

So what are the true factors that influence heat pumps and distinguish them from one another? We break the experience into 3 main categories:

Heat Pump Efficiency Rating

When it comes to the modern heat pump, efficiency is generally look at in terms of SEER rating.  You will find that today’s heat pumps have SEER’s ranging from 13 to more than 20.  With 13 being the minimum by federal standards, this will receive our lowest rating.  As you move up the efficiency scale you will see higher ratings.

Heat Pump Feature Rating

When we review these heat pumps we keep an eye on specific features and compare and contrast them against other heat pumps in the HVAC industry.  From there we ferret out those that truly have special features and those that are simply run of the mill.

Heat Pump User Rating

With our user rating we are trying to project what sort of user experience the heat pump will give down the line.  We derive this from past history of consumer insight and how people have responded to similar heat pump units.

Once we have all of these factors rated, we average them and get an overall rating for each heat pump.  You can use either the overall rating to make your decision or weight them differently based on your specific situation.
