Amana heat pumps provide both heating and cooling in a single unit. The company offers a variety of heat pumps, with some of the best warranties in the industry. When choosing a heat pump, consider each unit’s energy efficiency ratings. The seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) illustrates the cooling efficiency, and the heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) shows the unit’s heating efficiency.

For those who live in mild climates, a heat pump is often more energy efficient than air conditioners and furnaces. Heat pumps use electricity to move warmed air in and out of your home.
