Split-System Heat Pumps

With seven different models of split-system heat pumps, Maytag’s product line ranges from base models to ultra-efficient units. The company’s top-tier products feature up to 22 SEER/10 HSPF, as well as two-stage heating and cooling designed for consistent, energy-saving home comfort. These models are advertised as providing quiet operation with low vibrations.

Maytag’s mid-range models can offer efficiency ratings up to 15 SEER/8 HSPF. Several units can receive up to a 1 SEER boost when paired with matching Maytag components, such as a variable-speed indoor air handler or gas furnace.

The company also offers two 13 SEER/8 HSPF heat pumps capable of receiving a 1 SEER boost when paired with complementary components.

Additional components of this product type include a galvanized steed exterior and corrosion-resistant spray finish. Select models meet Energy Star standards.

Packaged Heat Pumps

Maytag offers 10 models of packaged heat pumps. Top-tier models offer up to 16 SEER/8 HSPF. Similar to the split-system pumps, these models also are equipped with two-stage heating and cooling.

A 20-inch fan blade with a condenser fan and compressor sound blanket helps keep noise level to a minimum and reduces vibration during operation. Optional backup heat also is available and can provide up to 20 kw of heat output.

Within its line of high-tier products, Maytag also manufactures a hybrid unit that offers 16 SEER/8 HSPF and 80 percent AFUE. To maximize energy savings, this unit uses two fuel sources: electric during mild temperatures and gas when the temperature drops.

Mid-range units provide as much as 14 SEER/8 HSPF and are equipped with a galvanized steel case, a wire coil guard and mesh hail guard protector.

More basic models offer 13 SEER/7.7 HSPF, but still feature corrosion-resistant components designed to withstand the elements.

Care and Maintenance

While homeowners can perform general maintenance, Maytag suggests annual system tune-up by a professional technician for every heating and cooling product. Yearly maintenance includes leak check and repair, electrical and component inspection, and cleaning if necessary.


Maytag heat pumps are equipped with a 12-year parts warranty with online registration. In addition, Maytag provides a “Dependability Promise” to replace the entire unit if the compressor fails within one to 12 years, depending on the model. If the heat pump isn’t registered online, the term is reduced to five years.

"Maytag heat pump"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Works great for 2 years now. The only problem I have had was a burnt up circuit board on the Air handler. I should add that I did the damage changing the thermostat with the power on. (My Bad). I even told the tec I thought I did it. The warranty covered it. I did pay for 1 hour of service but it was well worth it. He PM'ed my Heat pump while he was there. Even cleaned it. I think it took him about 5 min to replace the board but he worked his hour for me. Thank you Wilson Heat and Air in Longview, Texas and thank you Maytag, for a good product.

"Cooling coil leaks at one year anniversary"

Very Unsatisfied

Cooling coil leaked out all Freon at one year anniversary. Coil had to be removed, taken to a welder and repaired in two places. Very poor workmanship on product.

"Warranty Difficulty"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

When I bought this in March 2007, the installer claimed there was a 12 year warranty. The air handler coil developed leaks just before 10 years was up, but I did not report it until just after the 10 year mark. Now the warranty folks are saying I have a 10 year warranty instead of a 12 year warranty and are trying to say it was never registered. I am still trying to see if I can fight this. Not happy at all with the warranty handling. But the unit itself has performed pretty well for 10 years. The only significant problems I had during that time were due to very poor installation by the contractor.

"Lousy AC"

Do not buy a Maytag AC. Mine is 5 years old and had to have the compressor and coil changed. Still works shitty.

"Favorable review of the Maytag PSH4BI iQ heat pump"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I chose this Maytag PSH4BI iQ Energy Star heat pump because it is eligible for utility rebates in my area. I would certainly recommend this heat pump to a friend. I have had it for a little less than a year. One of the things I like best about the unit is that it does a great job of dehumidifying the house, which being an older home, was quite humid before the heat pump was installed. I also enjoy the intelligent thermostat, which makes setting the heating and cooling ranges a snap. My only dislike is that it only communicates with other Maytag equipment. I like the fact that it is quiet and very efficient. The unit has not needed any repair or replacement, which is not surprising, since it has a limited 12 year warranty. If I ever had to purchase another heat pump, I would definitely consider another Maytag.
