Split-System Heat Pumps

With seven different models of split-system heat pumps, Maytag’s product line ranges from base models to ultra-efficient units. The company’s top-tier products feature up to 22 SEER/10 HSPF, as well as two-stage heating and cooling designed for consistent, energy-saving home comfort. These models are advertised as providing quiet operation with low vibrations.

Maytag’s mid-range models can offer efficiency ratings up to 15 SEER/8 HSPF. Several units can receive up to a 1 SEER boost when paired with matching Maytag components, such as a variable-speed indoor air handler or gas furnace.

The company also offers two 13 SEER/8 HSPF heat pumps capable of receiving a 1 SEER boost when paired with complementary components.

Additional components of this product type include a galvanized steed exterior and corrosion-resistant spray finish. Select models meet Energy Star standards.

Packaged Heat Pumps

Maytag offers 10 models of packaged heat pumps. Top-tier models offer up to 16 SEER/8 HSPF. Similar to the split-system pumps, these models also are equipped with two-stage heating and cooling.

A 20-inch fan blade with a condenser fan and compressor sound blanket helps keep noise level to a minimum and reduces vibration during operation. Optional backup heat also is available and can provide up to 20 kw of heat output.

Within its line of high-tier products, Maytag also manufactures a hybrid unit that offers 16 SEER/8 HSPF and 80 percent AFUE. To maximize energy savings, this unit uses two fuel sources: electric during mild temperatures and gas when the temperature drops.

Mid-range units provide as much as 14 SEER/8 HSPF and are equipped with a galvanized steel case, a wire coil guard and mesh hail guard protector.

More basic models offer 13 SEER/7.7 HSPF, but still feature corrosion-resistant components designed to withstand the elements.

Care and Maintenance

While homeowners can perform general maintenance, Maytag suggests annual system tune-up by a professional technician for every heating and cooling product. Yearly maintenance includes leak check and repair, electrical and component inspection, and cleaning if necessary.


Maytag heat pumps are equipped with a 12-year parts warranty with online registration. In addition, Maytag provides a “Dependability Promise” to replace the entire unit if the compressor fails within one to 12 years, depending on the model. If the heat pump isn’t registered online, the term is reduced to five years.

"Heat pump and AC upgrade"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Bought it last year 16 seer 4 ton and we have not had any issues. Our electric bill has decreased by about 30% and it came with a 12 year worry free guarantee. I believe our contactor made all the difference because he seem to know the ins and outs of the unit and with all the safety and new specs required on these new systems.

"Not what I expected"

Very Unsatisfied

Spent a lot of money to have systems updated 2 years ago. The outside units sounds like a 747 taking off when they start. The first year my electric bill in the winter DOUBLED. I figured maybe just a cold winter. The second year the the electric bill was also double what they were with my 15 year old system. I expected my electric bill to be less NOT MORE.

"Junky heat pump"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Initially we were very excitedwitht he unit, installed oct 2008. (after not working the very first day…that should have been out first clue). Since Jan 2010 contractor has been out every 2 to 4 months. Similar to other reviews, this last time we did not know there was a problem until we received a $900 heating bill!! The house was warm because the unit never used the heat pump! Installer cannot find the problem.. Why would Maytag not have a thermostat that tells you when the heat pump is not working? We spent alot of money on this unit. We also have one of the Maytag Neptune washer/dryer units….we were caught in a poorly designed unit …also have put lots of money into these expensive units…we like the unit but too bag Maytag uses junky parts.

To all the customers having problems with there equipment i guarentee that it is contractor problems. I've had my maytag system for 3 yrs now and havent had a minutes trouble with it. Its quit and reliable.. To all you Trane lovers, i have 3 rental properties with trane equipment. Eventhough they get pm every year, I have had a reversing valve bad on one, expansion valve bad on another, and a fan motor put in another. All units installed in 2006. XL models at that…

"Great Heat Pump better than Trane"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Just bought an M1200 heat pump in December 2010. Very efficient and quiet. Low power bill better heating and cooling. Installed by Jolly Heating and Cooling in Alabama. Please do lots of research on your installer. DO NOT JUST GO WITH THE LOWEST BIDDER!!!! Do your own research on HVAC and have a long talk with the installer. Almost all these problems people are having is the installers fault and not the equipment. Most of the contractors out there don't even read the paperwork that comes with the unit. They think they know it all when they don't. Our installer was THE BEST!
