Frigidaire Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer Ratings - Frigidaire Heat Pumps come in efficiency ranges from 13 SEER all the way up to 22 SEER and 10 HSPF. The same company that many are familiar with that produces refrigerators offers a full line of HVAC equipment through Nordyne.
The IQ Drive Frigidaire heat pumps are known as the most efficient conventional split system heat pumps you can buy with going with a geothermal heat pump system. The Frigidaire heat pump system with IQ drive can fully modulate from 40% all the way to 118% and with an operating range like that, you can be assured the Frigidaire can handle any load you can throw at it with efficiency.
IQ Drive is only available in select Frigidaire heat pump models. IQ Drive is essentially a rotary compressor using a variable speed drive that regulates the speed of the entire system based on demand. Rotary compressors have been used extensively in HVAC mostly in ductless mini-split systems.

Air Source Heat Pump Tips | Dual Fuel Heating
A dual fuel heat pump is a heat pump with a gas furnace for backup heating rather than electric heat strips.
Air source heat pumps have a backup heating source. In most installations, the backup heating source is electric heat strips. Electric heat strips are very cheap to install in most cases. However, while electricity is generally regarded as 100% efficient, producing it is more costly than other heating methods. For a more efficient heat pump, consider a dual fuel heat pump, or a heat pump with a gas furnace for the backup heat source. It will be more costly to install, but your monthly bills will be reduced.
Frigidaire Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer Ratings | Conclusion
Always remember, if you purchase the top-of-the-line system you will not get the listed efficiency if you do not match the indoor system with the condenser. Additionally, top SEER/HSPF ratings do not apply to all sizes or capacities.
Some people will not purchase the most efficient Frigidaire heat pump even though it is recommended simply because of the savings on energy bills in the future. Currently, the mid-range efficient Frigidaire is a better purchase than the lowest rated (efficient-wise) heat pump. We encourage purchasing a higher rated (efficiency-wise) heat pump simply because electricity prices will likely never go down but will be ever increasing in the future.
