Efficient electric heat pumps provide year-round comfort by heating your home in winter and cooling it in summer—and, typically, they increase your home’s energy efficiency – saving you money.  Heat pumps are a great choice for the Pacific Northwest, as they are able to accommodate both heating and cooling needs of your home. Heat pumps work by transfer thermal energy from one cooler location to a warmer location, which is at a higher temperature, moving energy in the opposite direction from temperature.  A heat pump can be used to efficiently heat or cool a space, depending upon whether the environment is cooler or warmer than the conditioned-space.

Even when a heat pump is used for heating, it uses the same basic refrigeration-type cycle to do the job (merely changing operation so that the warm end of the device is inside the conditioned space, heating it). Most commonly, when used in heating, heat pumps draw heat from the air or from the ground.

Rheem Heat Pumps

Rheem offers top-quality products with the latest technology, dependable performance, great warranties and excellent service and support. All of this is why we confidently say, “Relax, It’s Rheem.” Naturally, energy efficiency is important. But when making your selection, remember low operating costs are little comfort if service and repair bills are high. Don’t be sold on energy efficiency alone.  Rheem is the only manufacturer to install the  Compliant Scroll® Compressor, the industry best, in its entire residential heat pump line.

The Department of Energy requires all air-conditioning and heating equipment manufacturers to evaluate and rate the efficiency of their equipment on a seasonal basis. These ratings are known as the SEER or, Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, for air conditioners, and the HSPF or, Heating Seasonal Performance Factor, for heating equipment.

Heat pumps use both numbers. The higher the SEER or HSPF rating, the more efficient the heat pump. High-efficiency units cost more. But since operating costs are lower, the payback period is often shorter than you realize. A high SEER/HSPF heat pump also can add value to your home which is important to today’s energy-conscious home buyers.
