All About the Brand-New Lennox Merit Series 14HPX Heat Pump

Posted: 2019-04-23

Since this is an off-season, spring is the perfect season to prepare your home for the summer. If you’re planning on making big changes to your home’s comfort system, be sure to have heat pumps on your list.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted HVAC company in North Oaks MN that offers high-efficiency, versatile heat pumps.

Two HVAC Systems in One Machine

A heat pump is designed to perform two functions: a central heating system and an air conditioning system. If you are stuck with an old furnace or an air conditioner, you can dispose of the two systems and install only a heat pump, which is a singular system that can switch between heating and cooling modes while still doing practically the same job. In the simplest sense, a heat pump is an air conditioner that can switch the direction it moves heat. It can transfer heat either out of the house or into it.

Spring is a great time to install a heat pump because the days are longer, which means that the installation process will be quicker and there is no interruption to your heating and cooling system when you need it. If you prefer to get a ground source heat pump, the drilling operation will be done much easier because the ground will be softer and more suitable for digging a trench or a borehole.

Features of the Lennox Merit Series 14HPX Heat Pump

The 14HPX heat pump has efficiency ratings of up to 16.00 SEER and 8.2 HSPF, packing a lot of comfort into an affordable package.

Pairing this heat pump with a variable-speed furnace or air handler allows you to continuously maintain a slow circulation of air throughout your home, decreasing the amount of humidity in your home for improved indoor air quality and comfort.

When the 14HPX 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.

This product comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components including the compressor. The 14HPX heat pump may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Warranty coverage with product registration.

The 14HPX 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.

The compressor is the part of the unit that pumps refrigerant to deliver the cooling your home needs. The 14HPX is built with a proven, reliable scroll compressor that means years of trouble-free operation. 

The 14HPX is compatible with the exclusive Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system, for indoor air that feels better even on sweltering days.

The 14HPX heat pump efficiently keeps operating noise to a minimum. It only has an operating sound of up to 76 decibels, which is the sound of a normal conversation. SilentComfort® technology delivers low sounds levels, providing the ultimate in quiet, consistent heating and cooling.

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 14HPX heat pump.
