Residential Heat Pump/Hybrid


The Difference is Electric.

A heat pump works all year around, cooling your home in the summer and heating it in the winter. But, unlike a furnace, a heat pump doesn't burn natural gas to create heat. It uses electricity. The Heat Pump is matched with a furnace. When the outdoor temperature drops below 25°F, the heat pump stops and the furnace will takeover the task of heating the home.

Since Colorado has experienced the severe increases in natural gas prices, you will find the Hybrid System to be extremely cost effective to operate. American Standard's full line of heat pumps offer efficiencies of 8.3 to 9.65 HSPF, and 13 to 17.65 SEER. You have a wide range of comfort choices to select from, ranging from our single-stage Heritage® heat pumps, up to the two-compressor model, which offers two-stage cooling and heating.

American Standard's Heritage® heat pump family offers exclusive comfort technology and a range of options to give you the most quiet, efficient and comfortable home heating and cooling you've ever experienced.

Heat Pump

How does a Heat Pump work?

Heat pumps transfer heat from one place to another, providing both heating and cooling. They work on the principle that heat exists in air even at extremely low temperatures. In the winter, a heat pump extracts heat from outside air and delivers it indoors. To cool a house on hot summer days, it works in reverse, extracting heat from room air and pumping it outdoors.

American Standard's Heritage® heat pump family offers exclusive comfort technology and a range of options to give you the most quiet, efficient and comfortable home heating and cooling you've ever experienced.
