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.

I just want to say to all of you out there that theses reviews are mainly contractor issues not Maytag issues. I'm sorry that the suppliers in you area have not been more selective in the setting up of dealers in your areas. Rest assured that you have purchased a good product and that the right contractor can fix all of you concerns.

"It smells"

We bought this unit in April 2009. It worked great during the summer and lowered our power bill. Then, cool weather came. This unit goes into the defrost cycle by a timer and smells like dirty gym socks while blowing cold air. It is in a catch up mode all the time because of what I think is a major design flaw. I hope there is a fix to this problem. Our contractor has been super but has not been able to fix this problem. The Matag man really has blown this one. Where can I get a Trane?

"Maytag heat pump"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I've had my heat pump for a year and a half. It worked fine in the summer but my heating bill jumped to over $500 per month. The company that installed my heat pump will not return to repair the product they sold. No one else in my area works on these units and repeated calls to Maytag/Nordine have been futile. This was $4500.00 wasted. Now I'm going to buy a new Trane unit. I've had a Trane unit in one of my rental properties for about 5 years and had no trouble with getting a local company out for repairs.

When we had to rebuild our home after it was struck by lightning and burned, our HVAC contractor suggested a Maytag heat pump Model psh4bf048k. We couldn't be happier. We live in Mobile, Alabama, and have very humid, hot summers and mild winters. Our home stays comfy year round and our energy bills are very reasonable.
