In the winter, a heat pump draws air from the outside air and circulates it through ducts into your home.
A heat pump serves as a heater by absorbing heat from outdoor air and pumping it indoors. As the outdoor air passes over the outdoor coil, heat from that air is absorbed by the refrigerant contained inside the coil.
The absorption of heat changes the refrigerant from a low-temperature liquid to a low temperature, low-pressure vapor. The vapor then passes through a compressor where it is compressed into a high pressure, high temperature vapor.
The hot vapor then circulates into the indoor coil. As indoor air passes over the indoor coil, it absorbs heat from the coil. The warmed air is then redistributed through the duct system.
Heat pumps are assigned an HSPF rating based on a unit's heating efficiency.
HSPF Rating - The HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) rating is used to identify the heating efficiency of heat pumps: the higher the rating, the less electricity the heat pump uses to heat a given area.
Generally speaking, heat pumps with the highest SEER and HSPF ratings are more expensive to purchase than their lower rated counterparts. However, because they utilize less electricity, they can actually save you money in the long run.
