Heat Pump | How To Make Meaningful Heat Pump Comparisons

When making heat pump comparisons, you will find that the overall set up of this type of appliance is pretty standard. It will depend on the type of unit you purchase as well as the size, yet most machines operate on the same principle. All will have a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) as well as an HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Rating). This will allow you to compare the basic features of your pump but also can make it difficult to know how to make meaningful heat pump comparisons. The difference between appliances is most frequently seen in the options you may choose for your new unit. Knowing what these extra features are and how they perform will make your job much easier.

A desuperheater coil is an option you may wish to consider having on your new system. This coil heats water by recycling waste heat. Your appliance will be more efficient than standard machine thanks to this addition. If you are interested in using recycled materials to control the temperature of your home, this may be a good option for you.


Another option that will increase the efficiency of your machine is a scroll compressor. Not only is this feature great for conserving energy, it also runs quieter than a traditional heat pump. If you tend to be disturbed by noises, this is an option you will definitely want to have. Best of all, these compressors tend to last longer than traditional ones which will allow you to recoup the added cost seen at the time of purchase.

If you do not want to go with a scroll compressor, dual-mode compressors may be more to your liking as will dual-mode motors. Both of the features save you money by adjusting the level of heating or cooling which will save on your energy costs. If low utility bills are your top priority, look into this option. Whichever options you do decide to add, compare the heat pumps carefully to ensure you know exactly what you are getting. This is a major investment and you do not want to be disappointed once it has been installed.
