Heat Pump FAQ

What does a heat pump do?

A heat pump uses the outside air to both heat and cool your home. In winter a heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air and distributes it throughout your house. In the summer, a heat pump operates just like a traditional air conditioner and includes the same efficiency features.

Is a heat pump right for me?

Every home and homeowner has unique needs, but generally, a heat pump is right for you if your winters are mild - rarely dipping below freezing. A climate like the Southeast that has mild winters works well. In addition, locations with low electric rates are prime candidates for heat pumps.

How energy efficient is a heat pump?

Heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnace and air conditioner systems. Because they don’t burn fuel, run on electricity, and don’t have to be matched with a separate heating or cooling system, heat pumps can be a less expensive option over time.

How much does a heat pump cost?

American Standard heat pump pricing depends on several factors like the size of your house, model, installation requirements—and even the climate conditions in your area. Some heat pumps even qualify for local rebates. Your best pricing resource is your local dealer.

How long does a heat pump last?

A properly installed heat pump should last an average of 15 years. Several factors can reduce or extend the life expectancy including the type of heat pump you buy, usage, your location and how well the heat pump is maintained.
