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.

"Long life"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

My Amana heat pump finally died at 36 years old. It has required exactly 1 service call in the 24 years I've been in the house. Complaints about leaking lines are the fault of the installer. I am grateful some unknown builder used a good installer in 1978. Now to find a good installer for the replacement.

"Poor design, poor customer service"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

My Amana heat pump is 4 years old and a refrigerant line has failed twice in the same location, near the compressor. The reason for the failures is vibration-induced fatigue. The small line goes directly from the compressor over to the side of the unit. This small line is therefore trying to keep the compressor from vibrating, which induces fatigue stresses leading to cracks and loss of refrigerant. The local installer just wants to braze over the crack again. But to prevent this from happening a third time, a vibration loop needs to be installed in the line, so the compressor can vibrate without stressing the line. Amana technical support will not talk to me about this, since I am not a certified HVAC technician. However, I am a mechanical engineer by degree and have worked vibration related failures in USAF aircraft hydraulic systems. I will never buy an Amana unit again.

"All Heat Pumps are the same!!!!"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Before you slam your heat pump brand take a look at the company that installed it!!! All heat pumps have the same parts on the inside from the same factory. Compressors, reversing valves, motors and other parts all come from the same factory's and are installed in every heat pump. 95% of the time when you dig deep enough the contractor that installed it did something wrong. Duct sizing, heatloss/gain, refrigeration practice's, refrigerant charge and many other factors affect the life of a heat pump. Too many contractors undersize to be the lowest bid and put in a larger back up heater so you don't notice any difference in comfort. Buyer Beware!! There are a lot of hvac scammers out there!!!!

"DO NOT BUY AN AMANA/GOODMAN"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Nothing but problems since installation. First, it kept tripping breakers. Then the motor went out and took over a week to get it replaced. We live in Florida and it was over 90 deg in the house — no relief had to go to hotel. I have asthma and sister has cancer and is on oxygen. Not anyone's problem. They told me I should have known this was a problem ac. Yeah right. Motor out again within 3 months — it took another week for the replacement. Amana is a piece of crap. Stay away from Amana.

"Worthless Junk"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I inherited this piece of junk when I moved into my home two years ago. Thank goodness it is still under its last year of warranty. I have made at least 10 service calls within two years to United Air Temps. The compressor and coils had to be replaced and this was determined after 6 visits within four months. After this replacement, the system went out again within two months. Repair Tech said it was the reversing valve. The manager came to my house with a whistle and a smile three weeks later, after I waited for the part that did not show up, and said it was not the valve. It's amazing he knew this without even checking. How brilliant of him. The situation was never resolved after complaints to bbb, useless. I refuse to live in the cold during winter time. I am replacing this unit but not with Amana and I will never call United Air Temp for service.
