On January 1, 2023, the Department of Energy (DOE) will require new testing procedures for developing efficiency ratings on split system heat pumps. Products that have gone through these updated testing procedures will display SEER2, EER2 and HSPF2 ratings, in addition to the older SEER/EER/HSPF ratings. The 2023 testing procedures are more stringent and will result in lower efficiency ratings compared to the older ratings. As we transition all our products to these new testing procedures, we’ll publish both ratings on our heat pumps category page for better comparison.

FAQs

Should you turn the heat down at night with a heat pump? ›

Turning a heat pump down when you're away or asleep may actually use more energy than leaving it on. The reason is that it has to work harder to come back to the desired temperature than it does to maintain it. It's best to set it at a comfortable temperature and forget it.

Are heat pumps really the answer? ›

It is true there is some heat in the air even in extremely low temperatures, however in order to drive the temperature of the coolant up to a useful level, the compressor needs to work harder – and remember the compressor works on electricity. This brings the efficiency right down potentially to 150% efficiency.

What temperature should I set my heat pump at night? ›

The temperature you set your heat pump / air conditioner on can affect its performance and energy usage. We recommend that you set the heat pump / air conditioner temperature between 23-26 degrees (cooling) in summer and 18-21 degrees (heating) in winter.

At what temperature do heat pumps become ineffective? ›

Heat pumps do not operate as efficiently when temperatures drop to between 25 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit for most systems. A heat pump works best when the temperature is above 40. Once outdoor temperatures drop to 40 degrees, heat pumps start losing efficiency, and they consume more energy to do their jobs.
