Energy efficiency

If energy efficiency is your top priority, you'll want to look at the seasonal energy efficiency (SEER) rating and the heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF). The higher these numbers are, the more efficient the heat pump is.

The government requires packaged units to have a minimum rating of 13 SEER. There is no federal minimum HSPF rating requirement.

To ensure high efficiency, look for a minimum rating of 15 SEER and 9.50 HSPF. Multi-stage heat pump air conditioning units with variable speed motors are what you want to look for when trying to find the most suitable Armstrong heat pump.


If you are looking for comfort, then go for multi-stage units with variable speed motors. In addition to being energy-efficient, these units offer you a great degree of control over your HVAC system.

Quiet operation

For a quiet unit, look at models with QuietShift. This technology minimizes the noise when the heat pump is switching operations.


If reliability is your main concern, units that have MHT cooling technology feature a specially designed fan that evenly draws air through the coil surface. Rifled tubing on the coil enhances refrigerant flow, and the lanced coil fins increase contact between air and metal. This unique technology works to increase efficiency and maximize heat transfer and reliability.

All units come with a 10-year limited warranty on parts and a lifetime limited warranty on the heat exchanger.

You will want to hire a contractor to install your Armstrong heat pump. In order to register your unit and take advantage of the warranty, you will need to have the heat pump installed by a licensed contractor.

Since many contractors give free estimates, it can be beneficial to get installation estimates from multiple contactors. 

Upgrading from an air conditioner to a heat pump to handle your home cooling needs may be a smart choice. Not only does it save space because it is a single unit as opposed to having a heater and an AC, you will likely save money on your utility bill. Heat pumps use a minimal amount of energy to heat and cool your house.
