All About the Brand-New Lennox Elite Series EL15XP1 Heat Pump

Posted: 2019-03-26

If you want to save on your utility bills and give your furnace some rest during the spring, you should consider getting a heat pump. Since it only uses electricity for power rather than to make heat, a heat pump offers an extraordinarily high efficiency rate.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted HVAC company in Lino Lakes MN that offers an array of energy-efficient heat pumps for homes, including the all-new EL15XP1.

Heat Pumps 101

A heat pump uses electricity and refrigerant to move heat from one place to another. It works by extracting heat from the air outside of your home and moving it to a refrigerant coolant, which is then compressed. After that, the coolant is moved to the indoor unit, which then passes air over the hot coolant, increasing its temperature to accommodate the heating requirements of your home.

Conventional methods of heating such as electric space heaters only generate heat that is equal to the amount of electricity used. On the other hand, a heat pump only uses electricity to power the evaporator, compressor, and condenser to suck heat from the outside and bring it to your home. This allows a heat pump to provide more than three units of heat for every unit of electricity used or an efficiency rate of 300%.

When used along with a primary heating system such as a gas furnace, a heat pump can offset up to 300 gallons of gas in a typical home, saving money on gas and lowering your home’s carbon footprint in the process.

This heat pump is certified by ENERGY STAR®. Such products are the same or better than standard products, only they use less energy. To earn the ENERGY STAR label, furnaces must meet strict energy efficiency criteria set by the US Environmental Protection Agency or the U.S. Department of Energy. Since they use less energy, these products save you money on your electricity bill and help protect the environment by causing fewer harmful emissions from power plants. And you get the features and quality you expect.

With years of rigorous testing under the most extreme conditions, our Quantum™ Coil–featuring a proprietary aluminum alloy exclusive to Lennox–is designed to weather the harshest elements.

The energy the EL15XP1 heat pump saves is matched only by its performance. Efficiencies of up to 16.00 SEER and 9.00 HSPF mean you can expect to save hundreds of dollars every year in energy bills compared to older heat pumps.

The EL15XP1 heat pump efficiently keeps operating noise to a minimum. It only has an operating sound of up to 71 decibels, which is the sound of a normal conversation.

Its long-lasting corrosion protection is baked into the PermaGuard™ unit base, and the galvanized steel cabinet’s powder finish ensures the longevity of the EL15XP1 heat pump.

When the EL15XP1 heat pump is installed with a compatible Lennox® furnace, it creates a heating system that can switch back and forth between electricity and gas automatically, based on whichever is most cost-efficient for the weather conditions at the time.
