Heat pumps are a popular choice in Hillsborough, North Carolina, homes because of their ability to provide an affordable, reliable, and space-saving solution for heating and cooling. The following are three heat pump features you’ll enjoy when you choose this all-in-one system.

High Efficiency Ratings

Heat pumps move heat to provide the indoor comfort you need. They don’t use as much energy as other types of HVAC systems that have to generate heat. They also use less energy to dehumidify the air, which is critical in North Carolina’s damp climate.

Heat pumps have high efficiency ratings. Ratings like SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) measure a system’s consumption of electricity as it manages your home’s temperature during the cooling season. Our Trane heat pumps have SEER ratings ranging from 14 to 20 and HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) heating ratings between 8.2 and 10.

Variable Speed

Variable speed heat pumps offer several benefits over multi-stage models. The blower fan motor automatically adjusts instead of shutting down and restarting as the temperature fluctuates. This technology also means heat pumps use less energy than other heating and cooling systems.

Variable speed reduces system damage and energy costs and produces more consistent temperatures. You’ll appreciate this feature even more during those times of the year when temperatures vary drastically over a 24-hour period.

Quiet Operation

Trane’s Climatuff® compressor has a sound-reduction insulator that allows the unit’s fan to run quietly. The sound insulator gives the system a low decibel sound rating. Therefore, you no longer have to deal with noisy on/off cycling. A variable speed fan also provides a quieter experience since the heat pump won’t cycle as frequently.

Trane systems are uniquely designed with the blades down, which also reduces sound levels and improves airflow and performance. Heat pumps can increase your comfort and lower your energy bill.
