Regional Efficiency Standards Map. The chart below breaks down the minimum HSPF and SEER requirements by region. You'll notice the following efficiency ratings given in the chart: SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is the ratio of the total cooling output from a piece of equipment to the energy it uses over time Click on the interactive map below to summarize the energy efficiency standards for your location.

HSPF ratings for Region 5 are sometimes referenced in regulations or shown in reference to a heat pump's performance in a specific climate. Region 5 metrics come from equipment test data and cannot be directly converted to Region 4 metrics. Region 5 metrics can be requested from manufacturers, but Region 4 metrics should be used for program. MINIMUM EFFICIENCY FOR UNITS INSTALLED IN THIS REGION SINGLE-PHASE: 65,000 BTU OR LESS Split Air Conditioners 14 SEER Split System Heat Pumps* 14 SEER, 8.2 HSPF Packaged Heat Pumps/Dual-Fuel 14 SEER, 8.0 HSPF, 81% AFUE Packaged Air Conditioner/Gas Electric 14 SEER, 81% AFU The map below shows HSPF values in different climate zones for equipment rated with a HSPF of 7.8. In Minneapolis, the HSPF of the equipment drops to 4.6. In Miami, the HSPF rises to 10.3. If you live in the continental United States, you can use this map to estimate a realistic HSPF for your equipment The 8.2 HSPF/14 SEER heat pump rating will become a national standard. Southwestern States - Minimum efficiency also goes to 14 SEER for air conditioning, but there is a new standard for EER that will call for 12.2 EER for systems less than 45,000 BTUH and 11.7 EER for systems over 45,000 BTUH Note: Performance-based codes will also allow 14 SEER/8 HSPF packaged systems and 81% AFUE weatherized gas furnaces, provided additional efficiency measures are installed to compensate for the difference in energy use between these systems and the corresponding values for the region in Table 2

If the HSPF rating does not specifically say for climate region 5, then the HSPF value is probably for climate region 4. Divide by 1.15 to convert the region 4 HSPF value to the region 5 HSPF value
For cooling units manufactured on or after January 1, 2015, the U.S. Department of Energy has changed the minimum efficiency from 13 SEER to 14 SEER for equipment installed in the Southeast and Southwest regions. For the North, heat pumps must be a minimum of 14 SEER, but 13 SEER split air conditioners can still be legally installed. A limited quantity of 13 SEER cooling units manufactured.

The minimum in the Southwest and Southeast is 14 and it's goes down to 13 in the North. A 13 or 14 SEER rating doesn't necessarily mean a unit is inefficient. Most older A/C systems are rated at around 8 or 9, so even the lowest available.

The higher the HSPF rating, the less electrical energy your heat pump uses to heat your home. The bottom line? You should always ask your dealer about the SEER, EER and HSPF ratings of the equipment they are recommending — just to make sure they match your region's requirements. It's.

You wonder how does a heat pump work. They can harvest heat from cold air and bring it into your home. Heat pumps work very well when the outdoor temperature is in the 50 F range. A heat pump operates as a normal air conditioner in the summer Generally speaking, the higher a heat pump's HSPF, the more efficient it is. The US EnergyStar program has set a minimum HSPF of 8.2 for split-systems (ductless units), and 8 for single-package equipment (regular heating and cooling unit). What is SEER? SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating
Installation Costs. The average installation time to install the heat pump is 15 hours, depending on what needs to get done. Labor costs average around $100 - $150 per hour, or about $1,500 to $2,250 for the project.. The cost of labor will vary depending on the region you live in and the contractor you select for the project Mexico region . 2 Methods corresponding to the 3 arc-second (or 1:250,000-scale) USGS topographic map series were used. The National Elevation Data (NED) database provides a seamless mosaic used by the HSPF program to generate a HSPF model). In this research, tw Evaluating the impact of climate change on water resources is necessary for improving water resource management and adaptation measures at the watershed level. This study evaluates the impact of climate change on streamflow in South Korea using downscaled climate change information based on the global climate model (GCM) and hydrological simulation program-FORTRAN model. Representative. The HSPF-Paddy model was applied to the Bochung watershed in Korea to compare water budget components by the land use types under the Asian monsoon climate. The calibration of HSPF-Paddy during 1992-2001 with PEST, a package program to optimize HSPF, and validation during 1985-1991 were carried out.
