Yes, the name heat pump might make you think these are heating devices, but actually, heat pumps are good for AC, cooling, and heating as well—in fact, they’re really good! Not only are energy efficient AC heat pumps more affordable to run than central air conditioning, but they feature both cooling and heating settings that offer a year-round home comfort solution.

What Is a Heat Pump?

Air source heat pumps operate by moving heat from one location to another. When they’re in cooling mode, a heat pump absorbs heat from your indoor air and sends it outdoors via a refrigerant line. 

Like other heat pumps (ductless and ducted mini-splits are another kind that come with their own unique benefits), ducted heat pumps operate completely electrically and are composed of two main components: an outdoor unit and an indoor air handler. In the case of ducted heat pumps, the indoor air handler is connected to your ductwork, delivering cool conditioned air in the summer anywhere in your home with vents and duct access.

If you’re wondering how much space for a heat pump is needed in your living areas, you don’t need to worry with a ducted heat pump—the entire system is hidden out of sight and looks no different than a traditional central air and furnace setup.

Is a Heat Pump Right for Me?

Not sure whether you’re a good candidate for heat pump installation? Some of the common signs that a ducted heat pump could be a good fit for your home include:

You’re ready to replace your current central air conditioning system

As long as you need to upgrade your AC anyways, the cost benefit of upgrading to a heat pump system instead will outweigh the additional expense.

You’re using gas to heat your home

You’ll see the biggest yearly cost savings on energy bills if your heat pump will be replacing a gas-fired furnace. Keep in mind that when a heat pump operates in heating mode, it will go through a defrost cycle, which will cause cold air to blow out of the vents while this happens. Don’t be alarmed, this only goes on for a few minutes during that cycle!

You live in a climate with hot summers and mild winters

Heat pumps save you the most money and operate most efficiently in cooling mode, making the Phoenix area a perfect climate for heat pump installation—you’ll be cooling down your home most of the year, and heat pumps will be able to handle our mild winter season without breaking a sweat! 

How Is Heat Pump Cooling Efficiency Measured?

How much you have to pay in cooling costs every year is tied to the efficiency of your cooling system—the more efficient your system is, the less money it will cost to run. Since heat pumps can both cool and heat your home, their efficiency is measured by three different ratings:

  • HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor)

  • SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio)

  • EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio)

HSPF measures heating efficiency, while SEER determines energy efficiency for a range of outdoor temperatures, so the efficiency is measured at outdoor air temperatures that range from 65 degrees to 104 degrees. EER measures the energy efficiency of a heat pump at a single outdoor temperature: 95 degrees. EER is a more accurate measurement of energy efficiency for our Phoenix climate since we are a cooling dominated climate!

The higher the EER or SEER rating, the better, and Trane heat pump systems, installed by the leading heat pump company in Phoenix, Ideal Energy, have SEER ratings as high as 20!
