All About the Dave Lennox Elite Series XP20 Heat Pump

Posted: 2020-04-21

Are you in need of a new HVAC system or do you want to upgrade your existing unit? You might be wondering what specific system meets your home’s needs. Perhaps, you’re looking for something that gives you flexibility in terms of installation and functionality. Have you considered installing a heat pump in your home?

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your leading HVAC company in North Oaks MN. In partnership with Lennox, we offer a wide range of home comfort systems engineered to make your abode a great place to live in. We have a full line of Lennox-branded heat pumps, which are recognized as some of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems you can find.


A heat pump is a device that moves heat energy from one place to another. Designed for homes in regions with moderate climate, a heat pump can provide excellent heating and cooling as an alternative to a furnace or an air conditioner.

It works a lot like a refrigerator, which uses electricity to transfer heat from a cool place to a warm space.

During the cold season, it moves heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house, and during the hot season, it works in reverse by moving heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because a heat pump moves heat instead of creating heat, it can provide similar space conditioning as a regular heating system. The only difference: a heat pump uses less energy and thus, gives you lower energy costs.
