Precision Heat Pump Installation

The EPA sets forth guidelines for heat pumps: seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF). SEER is a measure of cooling efficiency. The minimum in the north is 15.0 SEER and 14.3 SEER2. HSPF is a measure of heating efficiency. The minimum here is 8.8 HSPF and 7.5 HSPF2. SEER2 and HSPF2 factor static air pressure into the equation.

Many homeowners in this region who opt for heat pump installation will need a furnace as well. The industry refers to this setup as a dual-source heat pump, or hybrid heating. It lets you take advantage of the high energy efficiency of a heat pump most of the time. When the temperature falls too low for the heat pump to be efficient, the furnace kicks on.

When it comes time for heat pump replacement, you don’t necessarily need to replace the furnace. A furnace used for auxiliary heating can easily last through two or more heat pumps. That makes it an excellent investment over the long run.

Our company provides heat pump repair services as well. Whether you should repair or replace, it depends on the age of the system and the cost of the repair. If the system is under 10 years old, repair is often the better option.
