Coleman® "Split System" Heat Pumps
Coleman® comfort is yours all season long with our split system heat pump design. In summer, it draws heat out of your home to cool it. In the winter, it draws heat from outside air into your home to warm it. Many heat pumps have a booster electrical-resistance heater that automatically heats outside air even more. Outside air always has heat in it — even at very low outdoor temperatures.

The system reverses the cycle used during summer cooling (which is measured by using SEER, Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and to provide winter heating (measured by using HSPF, Heating Season Performance Factor). A heat pump uses electricity as its power source.
