Heat pumps heat your home differently that a furnace or a boiler, which create heat by burning fuel. A heat pump is really an air conditioner running backwards. Heat pumps are good in milder winters but when it really get cold they have back-up strip heaters to compensate.
When choosing a new heat pump to be installed or replacing an old one, be sure to check your heat pump unit's SEER rating. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio shows the effectiveness of the unit - the higher the rating, the greater the energy efficiency and energy savings. East Heating and Air suggests choosing a heat pump with a SEER rating of 14.0 or better, with a maximum rating of 18.0.
