The Maytag Model PSH4BI iQ Drive heat pump, formerly known as the M1200 22 SEER heat pump is one of the most efficient models currently available. The Carrier Greenspeed 25VNA heat pump has a higher HSPF of 13, but few can match the 22 SEER of the Maytag Model PSH4BI iQ Drive. The key to its efficiency is the modulating compressor that runs at 40% to 100% capacity depending on the precise heating or cooling needs of the moment. It will adjust automatically, in increments of just 1-3%, in order to create balanced temperatures with little or no fluctuation.
The inverter-rotary compressor also provides superior dehumidification to 2-stage heat pumps during cooling cycles, making your home more comfortable all summer long. This rotary technology is quieter, with operating noise below 60 decibels.
