How To Choose a New Heat Pump

Most people know that you have to have a properly sized heat pump if you want it to keep your home comfortable and operate efficiently. What many don’t know is that this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many other factors that must be taken into account before making a choice.

One example is that there are three different compressor types commonly found in new types of heat pumps. A basic heat pump has a single-speed compressor that runs when needed and shuts down when it’s not. These are the simplest and are generally found in the lowest-priced heat pump units.

Next, you could opt for a two-speed compressor. These help you avoid temperature and humidity swings by running at either low or high, depending on your home’s demand. These are slightly more expensive but generally operate at a lower cost than single-speed models.

Top-shelf units will have variable-speed compressors that run almost constantly to maintain a very narrow comfort zone. Though counterintuitive, these are actually the most efficient to operate and, despite being the most expensive, actually pay for themselves faster than other types of units.

A few other characteristics that you should consider would include:

  • Local climate– Different models of heat pumps are designed to operate within specific temperature and humidity ranges. A unit intended for the wrong climatic conditions will not operate as efficiently as it should.
  • Efficiency– Every heat pump sold in the U.S. should have a SEER rating or Seasonal Energy-Efficiency Rating. The higher this number, the less it will cost to operate the unit. All else being equal. Higher-rated units generally cost more but save you money over time.
  • Reliability– This is an area where the advice of an experienced local heat pump installation company can be of great help. No two areas are the same, and it is only through experience that we can learn which brands and models provide the highest reliability and longest service life.
  • Noise Level– Most manufacturers publish the noise levels that their units emit. This may seem like a small factor to consider, but if the outdoor unit is placed under your bedroom window, it can become of major importance.
