Heat pump overview

Heat pumps operate by transferring warm air from one place to another. In the summer, they transfer heat from inside the house to outside to keep your home cool. During the winter, they extract heat from outside air (even cold air holds heat) and pump it into your home to heat it. In areas with temperate climates, a heat pump can lead to significant cost savings on monthly energy bills. In more extreme temperature zones, heat pumps still work, but the financial savings are less.

There are two basic types of Amana heat pumps: traditional and package unit. A traditional heat pump is similar to an air conditioner with a reverse cycle added. Some parts are housed in a weather-resistant cabinet outside your home, while other components sit inside an indoor cabinet. Ducts are used to force air throughout your home.

If you have limited space, a package unit may be the right option for you. All of a package unit’s components are located in a single outdoor unit that can be installed on your roof or on a concrete pad outside your home. 

When reviewing heat pumps, pay attention to their energy-efficiency ratings: the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and the HSPF (Heating Season Performance Factor). These numbers are derived by dividing the unit’s cooling or heating output, respectively, by the amount of electrical energy it consumes. The higher the numbers, the better the energy efficiency.

Care and maintenance

The best way to enhance the lifespan and energy efficiency of your Amana heat pump is to keep it clean. You should regularly clear clutter, vegetation, and debris from around the outdoor unit. Wipe down the vents inside your home periodically, and occasionally turn off the fan and clean it. Wash or change the filters monthly, and have your heat pump serviced annually by a local service technician.

Amana heat pump warranties

Amana heat pumps have strong warranties that include a limited 10-year warranty on parts. Higher-end heat pumps also feature a lifetime limited warranty on the compressor. Although labor charges are not included in standard warranties, extended warranty options that include labor may be available through your dealer.

"Stand behind your product"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

The condenser failed in the eighth year. The compressor failed just before the 10 year warranty expired. However, the warranty was not honored because apparently Goodman must receive the faulty part before the warranty expires. So lost over $1000 due to a technicality.

"AMANA = UNRELIABLE"

Very Unsatisfied

Bought a new Amana heat pump system in 2008. Work fine and kept the house cooled down to 74 deg effortlessly for the first three years. System failed on us (shutdown). Tech found a component had totally disintegrated (blown up. Had difficulty with Warranty took three days to get component in hand. Less than one year later same story with another electrical component. Again, after 1 1/2 years later same story with component failure and difficulty warranty. Now into my 8 1/2 years systems shuts down. System is depleted of freon. Both the evap coils and the the copper piston mechanism that switches from cooling to heats are leaking. I am now on my 10 day in near 100 deg temp without any ac. Now starting to look to see if there are any outstanding lemon laws or state action law suits against this company. Cannot recommend Amana (or Goodman an Amana subsidiary)

"Unreliable compressor warranty"

3.0 rating
Neutral

Our heat pump comes with lifetime warranty on the compressor. To get a replacement compressor, you have to hire an Amana certified technician, who charges over $1,500 to replace the compressor. You also get a lot of run around to obtain answers. Conclusion: do not rely on the lifetime compressor replacement warranty. It is too costly to just replace the compressor. Our unit lasted 10.5 years. After reading all the other reviews, we consider ourselves lucky that we didn't have to deal with Amana/Goodman repair people earlier!!! We seem to have been among the relatively lucky customers. We will not buy another Amana/Goodman product again due to the poor warranty experience we had and those we read on this site.

Unit will be five {5} years old Jan. 31, 2017. Since the summer of 2016 it has broken down twice and cost us over $1000.00 Every repairman we have had agrees it is a piece of junk. One repair it had to be completely disassembled and put back together.

The worst piece of junk you can buy. I had coil leakage problems from day one. Replaced, but the coil still leaked. After 8 years the compressor burned up and although there was a 10 years parts warranty Goodman refused to honor it.
