Top 115 Volt Window Heat Pump Unit
Heat Pumps are a very efficient way to heat and cool a home; unfortunately, most window A/C units require 220/240 volts to operate.

While 220/240 Volt electrical lines can always be installed, this can add to the cost of installing a heat pump unit.

With most outlets wired for 110/115v, a unit that matches this voltage is often the only choice.

With this in mind, some 110/115-volt heat pump window units are available.

As always, be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.

Summary
Although most window heat pumps are 220-volt units, there are a few that are dedicated to 115-volts.

Keep in mind other electronics that may be on the same circuit as the outlet you plan to use.

Units like that above are likely to draw 10-20 amps. If there are other electronics on the same circuit breaker, it will flip off if the amps are exceeded.

One way to tell what outlets are on the same breaker is to plug into the outlet with an electronic device such as a radio and turn the breaker off. Other electronics on the breaker will also go off, giving you an idea of what is being used.

Also, heat pumps have a low-temperature rating which means they can work and pump out heat. This can vary from unit to unit.

Most heat pumps can work down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit without any problems. Below this and the outside condenser can begin to ice up. When this happens, most will use heat strips which work like a big space heater to send out heat.

If the temperature does drop low enough for the heat strips to come on, it should only be temporary while the condenser becomes unfrozen.
