All About the Lennox Elite Series EL16XP1 Heat Pump

Posted: 2020-05-05

Are you thinking about installing a new heat pump in your home? Are you wondering how much money you can save by choosing a heat pump over other heating or cooling options? If you are, you have come to the right place.

Needless to say, new HVAC systems perform far better than older ones. For this reason, investing in a heat pump totally makes sense. Your initial cost can be consequently reimbursed with lower energy bills.

A properly sized and installed heat pump can save you as much as 30 to 40 percent on your heating and cooling bills, provided that you keep your existing usage habits. Since heat pumps only transfer heat from the air or the ground instead of producing it, they require less energy to function. Because of this, a heat pump is a more practical choice over traditional electrical heating systems.

These systems are an outstanding source of energy-efficient heat for your home with the benefit of cooling your home in the warmer months. With these advantages over other heating or cooling sources, going for a heat pump is easily justifiable. It can significantly lower your energy costs without compromising your home’s comfort levels.

Four Seasons Air Specialist is your leading HVAC company in Circle Pines MN. In partnership with Lennox, we aim to give you an array of home comfort systems that meet your heating and cooling needs.
