What Does Heat Pump Size Refer To?

You might be thinking that the size is determined literally, but it’s not actually the metric an HVAC professional is using. When we say we’re going to size a system, what we’re more specifically talking about are a couple of important factors that influence the power, efficiency, and workload capacity of a new unit. For heat pump sizing, the factors are the BTUs of the system compared to the square footage of your home.

What Are BTUs?

If you’re unfamiliar, don’t worry! BTU stands for British Thermal Units, which are the traditionally accepted numerical value equal to the amount of energy needed to increase the temp of 1 lb. of water by one degree Fahrenheit. Essentially, it’s just an easy way to say how much power your system has and how much space you can expect it to heat/cool.

For example, a 10,000 BTU heat pump system can heat or cool around 300-500 square feet. This numerical value is also used to find the tonnage—or actual mechanical weight—of the system.

It’s That Simple?

Well, yes and no. While finding the square footage of your home is pretty straightforward, and while there are easy formulas to use to then find your ideal BTU range, the job doesn’t stop there. Each home is unique, and a wide variety of factors can interact with and alter the efficiency and performance of an HVAC system, which leads to needing different heat pump sizes. These factors can include:

  • The size and shape of your home
  • The number of separate rooms in your home
  • How many floors you have
  • The local climate
  • How many windows you have
  • Air infiltration and insulation factors

For these reasons and more, you want to always make sure you choose a trusted, trained, and certified HVAC professional to help you choose the right heat pump system for your home. A poor or inaccurate installation can lead to terrible energy-efficiency, high costs, and consistent breakdowns—plus, you won’t even be able to guarantee the system can heat or cool your home effectively!
