Carrier 25HBHR3 Heat Pump
Carrier specializes in creating a customized home comfort system tailored to your needs with our broad selection of residential heating and cooling products. We can help you choose the best system for your home including Carrier-exclusive features that further enhance your indoor environment.
Carrier’s Hybrid Heat™ delivers peace of mind to homeowners concerned about the unpredictable nature of utility costs. Hybrid Heat pairs a gas furnace with an electric heat pump to provide comfort, economy and flexibility. Your Carrier Hybrid Heat system will automatically switch between electric and gas heating as needed to keep your home comfortable all winter long while optimizing the efficiencies of each fuel source. And, because the heat pump also delivers cool comfort when it’s hot outside, your Hybrid Heat system is a complete year-round indoor comfort solution. Ask us if Hybrid Heat is right for you.
Carrier has one of the most extensive product research and development facilities in the world. From initial design to final assembly, they monitor product quality throughout all phases of the process. Their exclusive 5-step, 100% run test ensures that every single unit they make exceeds industry expectations and meets the toughest standard of all – yours.
Because heat pumps provide both heating and cooling their efficiency is measured with two distinct ratings.
- While in the cooling mode, heat pumps receive a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER number. SEER is like gas mileage. The higher the gas mileage or SEER, the more efficient the automobile or system is. Most new heat pumps rate between 13.0 and 19.0 SEER.
- While in the heating mode, heat pumps also receive a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor or HSPF rating. Again, the higher the number, the more efficiently the system works. Most new units have ratings between 7.7 and 9.0 HSPF.
As an ENERGY STAR® partner, Carrier Corporation has determined that 25HBR3 heat pumps that achieve system combinations of 14.0 SEER, 8.2 HSPF and 11.5 EER or higher meet the ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency.
Greater Operational Efficiency
Carrier’s 25HBR3 heat pump is available with efficiency ratings of 13.0 SEER when cooling and up to 8.0 HSPF when heating. For every $100 spent to cool your home using a 10.0 SEER heat pump, a 13.0 SEER heat pump should cost you approximately $77. Actual savings will depend on the efficiency of your current system compared to the efficiency of a new system.
