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.

Let me start out by saying that we had a Train when we lived in our Mobile Home. Had it for 11 years and never any trouble. We purchased this current unit 5 years ago. We have had it worked on every year since. I can't blame the repair company because the unit is a piece of junk. I believe that this unit deserves the lemon award. As one other review stated until we got our electric bill that jumped $250 making it a hugh $380 bill, one in which we have never had that high, did we know there was a problem. But this was after we had in worked on in October and our electric bill increased $50 after the work and we only run the unit 1 week. We are very conservative. I have kept the heat on 65 closed off spare rooms don't use the dryer nor the dishwasher because of cold weather knew that the electic bill would increase. Never in my mind did I imagine this. So process of elimination to figure out the problem once again was our heat pump was the issue. Not only do we have to pay the electric bill but we have to pay labor. The parts are covered but we just paid $450 labor in October now add $300 extra for electric bill and now another $350 for labor again. Called Maytag and they don't care they have sold the warranty division off and they don't care that their units are junk. Please don't think that the Maytag name is a quailty name to associate with a product because that is not true. I would never recommend no matter how many years the warranty is because you have to pay the labor and you have to have them worked on at least once per year if not 2X per year.

We replaced our Trane HVAC with Maytag and that was a mistake. The first winter the compressor burned up and there was not a signal other than the $500.00 electric bill to let us know we were operating on heat strips. This winter the whole compressor froze solid and we are once again waiting for parts and running on heat strips for the last week while we wait for parts. If your dealer does not have a complete inventory of multiple parts for the unit you purchase, the warranty Maytag promises for 12 years is not worth the paper its on.

We purchased a 3 Ton M1000 Heat Pump System 10 SEER w/10kw Aux. Heat in April 2006 to replace 10 year old Janitrol. This past summer the unit ran continually, unable to keep the inside temperature below 76 degrees most days and even most nights. Now with winter here when the outside temp is below 40 degrees the unit runs continually and the inside temp is never higher then 65 degrees. Our last months electric bill was a record high $700. HVAC contractor/installer says that everything is operating to factory specs and cannot identify or explain the problem even after installing all new ductwork (waste of money).He now recommends replacing this less then 5 year old unit with 4 ton Bryant unit.

We purchasedc the top of the line Maytag heat pump three months ago on recomendation from the distibuter in the area. We purchased the hi effecincy model , supposedly the top of the line.We needed to replace a 28 year old Lennox unit. From day one the unit started to make loud noises and loud enough to wake us up at nightand loud enough for the landscaper to comment on. We have made numerous calls to the installer and it seems like he is playing a guessing as far as what the problem is. They have replaced the motor an that made no difference at all , now they are telling us it is an electrical panel that needs to be replaced and that was suppose to be in mid Oct and we have not seen it yet. I have left another message for the installer and am waiting for a reply. I would not recommend this item for anyone . IT SHOULD NOT TAKE THIS LONG FOR IT TO BE REPAIRED CONSIDERING THE MONEY WE PAID FOR THIS UNIT . I should have more persitant and bought a gas forced air system.
