3 Reasons You Should Get a Heat Pump

A Spotlight on the Dave Lennox Elite® Series XP20 Heat Pump

While heat pumps offer a number of benefits, but they are oftentimes underestimated. Many homeowners miss the option of having a high-efficiency heat pump in place of other expensive, bulky heating and cooling systems. A heat pump is actually a more practical option during milder climates.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted HVAC company in White Bear Lake MN that offers an array of heat pumps engineered by Lennox.

A Heat Pump Consumes Less Energy

Instead of creating heat, a heat pump moves it from a cold space to a warm space. So, when it’s cold outside, it will transfer the warm air into your home and when it’s hot outside, it will transfer the warm air out of your home. Since the heat is not generated but only transferred, a heat pump is significantly less expensive to operate.

You Can Use it Depending on Your Needs

Certain heat pumps offer advanced features to better suit your needs. A heat pump with a two-speed compressor allows you to control the capacity at which the device is functioning. As a result, your energy consumption is greatly reduced. Other models can also recover waste heat from the heat pump’s cooling mode and use it to heat water.

A Heat Pump Helps Save the Environment

If you heat your home with electricity, a heat pump can lower the amount of energy you consume for heating by as much as 30 to 40 percent. Not only does a heat pump lower your electricity usage, it also helps the environment in the process.
