In addition, the XR12 comes in two heat pump models -- also the R22 refrigerant and the R410-A refrigerant. All four of these models offer up to 13.0 SEER (Season Energy Efficiency Ratio) and 9.5 HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) on the heat pump. These factors put this particular model in the high-efficiently air conditioner and heat pump model ranges.
