Heat pumps can offer your home both heating and cooling as well as high energy efficiency, no matter the season. This is one of the reasons why Basnett Plumbing & Heating carries heat pumps as a heating and cooling option for our customers. One of the brands we carry is American Standard, a company that has been a staple in the heating and cooling industry for over 130 years. There are 3 levels of heat pumps that American Standard offers for your home in Lancaster, and we’ll outline them below.
The Platinum series, as the name indicates, is the top of the American Standard heat pump line of products. These units have a SEER of 18-20, which can save you up to 50% in annual energy costs. The Platinum line heat pumps are also multi-stage systems that operate at variable speeds, ensuring you have the exact comfort level you need without increasing your energy usage. There are several Platinum models to choose from, and your Basnett Plumbing & Heating specialist can help you determine which model will best fit your home.
The American Standard Gold heat pump offers homeowners 2-stage operation, with the unit operating the vast majority of the time at 70 percent capacity, which can save a great deal of energy. The SEER rating for the Gold models is 17.25; the minimum requires SEER is 13, so this model is also very energy efficient.
The Silver series is the most cost-effective of the American Standard heat pumps, having the lowest initial costs of all the American Standard heat pump products available. With SEER ratings ranging from 14-17, these units are very energy efficient but operate more simply at a single stage.
American Standard heat pumps come with the following warranties, as long as the unit is registered:
- Platinum and Gold – 12-year limited warranty on compressor
- Silver – 10-year limited warranty on compressor
- All – 10-year limited warranty on outdoor coil
- All – 10-year limited warranty on internal functional parts
In addition, many models carry the Energy Star rating.
