If your HVAC equipment needs to be replaced, considering heat pump options might help you find a system that offers both convenience and energy savings. The options include air-source, ground-source and absorption heat pumps. All heat pumps operate on the same principle of moving heat energy instead of generating it.
Heat pumps are rated for both cooling and heating efficiency. The minimum cooling efficiency rating stands at 13 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) and 7.7 HSPF (heating season performance factor). In our cold-winter climate, it probably makes more sense to prioritize HSPF when shopping for a heat pump. Read More Understanding the 3 Heat Pump Options for Your Massachusetts Home >>
