Understanding Heat Pump Efficiencies: Heat Pump Systems function as both cooling and heating systems for your home. Because of this, heat pumps have two efficiency ratings: one for heating and one for cooling.

SEER: Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating is the rating for the cooling mode of air conditioners. The higher the number the higher the efficiency. The Department of Energy has established 14 SEER as the minimum allowable cooling efficiency for residentials, air source heat pumps.

HSPF: Heating Seasonal Performance Ratio is used to measure a heat pump’s heating efficiency. The higher the number the higher the efficiency.
