Heat pumps are vigorously created with SEER ratings in a similar fashion to air conditioners. Since they technically qualify as air conditioners as well as heaters, this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. The interesting part about this information, and why we decided to devote a whole blog post to it, is that these systems require a bit more efficiency calculating than an air conditioner.
Thnk about it. Your heat pump works all year round moving heat from one place to another, while your air conditioner only works on the hot summer days. A heat pump that’s not up to efficiency standards proposed by the government is going to cost you a lot more than an efficient air conditioner. Take it from your Colorado Springs, CO HVAC provider, this is not something to ignore!
