There are also Maytag M1200 package units available for heat pumps, however, this review is for the split system heat pump. Remember, if you want to get the rated efficiency listed on the unit you need to get a matching indoor unit along with the heat pump condenser.

List of Features

The lists the features of their heat pumps as:

  • The heat pump is listed as being designed for dependability and beauty. I love beautiful heat pumps and they do have a nice looking heat pump with their brushed stainless steel cabinet. It looks nice and it is resistant to rust and corrosion. The design of the cabinet protects the coils from hazards such lawnmowers bumping into it and kids playing near the unit.

Additional Features | Maytag M1200 Series Heat Pump Reviews

    • Heat Pumps use R410A refrigerant. This is good because R-22 is being phased out of production much faster than everyone thought and the price of R-22 is rising.
    • The heat pump is trimmed with a protective coating on the top and bottom. This complements the rust and corrosion resistance effect of the stainless steel cabinet.
    • They list the condenser fan motor as being permanently lubricated and requires no maintenance. This is a common feature among many manufacturers including Maytag listing the motor is protected from rain and snow.
    • They list that their 15+ SEER rating is one of the highest ratings for available heat pumps on the market. While manufacturers generally rate their heat pumps by a SEER rating the air conditioning is rated by the SEER and the heating side of the heat pump is rated by HSPF or Heating Seasonal Performance Factor.
    • They list the top as being designed for maximum airflow and quiet operation. This is good because no one likes a noisy heat pump or air conditioner.
    • The heat pump has a diagnostic module which hopefully you will not need to use (or your HVAC technician will not need to use). They claim it can help the local heating and cooling dealer to offer you quick and efficient maintenance. Maytag doesn’t say how they offer this quick and efficient maintenance so you may want to ask the dealer when the salesman comes to demonstrate the heat pump.

Maytag M1200 Series Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer Ratings | Warranty

One of the best features of the heat pump is the warranty. The warranty is a 12-year parts warranty which exceeds many other manufacturers with other limited warranties. The average warranty from other manufacturers on heat pumps is 5 years parts and 10 years on the compressor so they stand behind their products with a good warranty.
For more information on the warranty please check the Maytag HVAC website.
