Westinghouse Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer RatingsWestinghouse Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer Ratings - Westinghouse Heat Pumps enter the heat pump market with a Nordyne manufactured a line of heat pumps for residential and light commercial applications. The split system line of Westinghouse heat pumps ranges from 13 SEER all the way up to 20 SEER which is rated as efficient as some geothermal heat pump systems.

Everyone who reads the reviews here at High Performance HVAC knows we are sticklers about manufacturers claims about efficiency but Westinghouse, or rather Nordyne, does something no one else does except the mini-split manufacturers and that is introduced inverter technology to the split system. Westinghouse has met the efficiency rating certified by AHRI which the industry testing institute for certifying efficiency ratings. Select features of select Westinghouse heat pumps include:

Westinghouse Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer Ratings | Select Features

  • The system modulates from 40% to 118% (select units). This is based on demand and it saves money and the life of the equipment. Most heat pumps start and stop several times a day. The modulating of the heat pump means the system runs longer but only at the level necessary to satisfy demand. Electrical and mechanical equipment that frequently starts and stops all day long experiences a shorter lifespan and uses more energy to start.
  • Engineered for quiet operation down to 59 decibels
  • All Westinghouse heat pump models use R-410A refrigerant
  • Units that exceed EnergyStar Heat Pump ratings available
  • Select heat pumps use a communicating system for monitoring and diagnostics.
  • 10-year all parts warranty upon timely and valid registration. We recommend registering your heat pump as soon as possible after installation.

Inverter technology allows the unit to use only the amount energy necessary to satisfy the load provided the unit is installed and controlled properly. In a normal air conditioner or heat pump, the unit will run flat out at 100% to satisfy the demand even when there is only a 50% load. If the unit is installed properly and regular maintenance occurs you can expect the system to give you the most efficiency. Westinghouse seems to have a good quality control check in place so before the units leave the factory they are checked over and over again for quality. Westinghouse backs this up with a 10-year parts warranty and a quality pledge.
