What to Look for in a Heat Pump

Heat pumps are an efficient alternative to traditional forced air furnaces, combining the features of a heater and an air conditioning unit into one. They work best in climates with very mild winters, which is why you see a fair amount of heat pumps in Benson AZ and the surrounding communities. They offer some significant advantages, including low comparative costs in month energy bills. Here’s what to look for in a heat pump if you think it’s something that’s right for your home.

  • High SEER ratings and HSFP ratings. SEER stands for Season Energy Efficiency Rating, which measures how well a heat pump cools the air in the summer. HSFP stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor, which charts the unit’ effectiveness at heating. The higher the ratings, the less energy it wastes. You can apply a shortcut by looking for heat pumps with the EnergyStar sticker, given to models that have particularly high SEER and HSFP ratings.
  • Proper sizing. In terms of the energy they generate, heat pumps need to be sized right for the space. A pump that is too small won’t do the job, while one that is too large will cycle on and off repeatedly: wasting energy and increasing wear and tear on the unit. Look for a pump that I sized just right, a principle we like to call the Goldilocks Rule.
  • Extra features. Many heat pumps come with features that help you save additional money, such as dual-mode motors that let you adjust the strength of the fan, and scroll compressors that help the heat pump run more quietly. You’ll need to decide which features are important to you and how much more you’d like to pay for them.

I called Goettl to get a second opinion on a/c repair options or replacement. Peter Medelez conducted a very thorough system check and confirmed all the same issues previously identified but found an additional issue; tipping the scale to full replacement. We appreciated his professionalism and knowledge: answering all our questions and explaining the issues and options. We ultimately chose Goettl for the replacement option due to their price and professionalism.

William and Cameron were knowledgeable, friendly, professional, respectful and put on plastic booties over their shoes when they came into the house. Our pets were comfortable with them and that says a lot. We will definitely ask for them again in the future if our AC has any issues.
