Heat pumps are a highly energy efficient and powerful alternative to traditional central AC systems. Heat pumps provide comfort year-round because they function as both heating and cooling equipment. On the warmest days of the year, heat pumps extract heat from your home and push it outside. Then, on the coldest days of the year heat pump functionality reverses, drawing warm air back into your house.
SEER Rating: Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or the ratio of the cooling output of an AC system during a typical cooling season, divided by the energy it uses in Watt-Hours. Like miles-per-gallon in your car, the the higher the SEER Rating the more cooling comfort you get per dollar spent on energy.
