All About the Lennox Elite Series XP16 Heat Pump

Posted: 2020-04-28

For decades, American homes have been equipped with ducted heating and cooling systems to fight the effects of extreme weather. However, in a typical home with a ducted HVAC system, about 20 to 30 percent of the air going through the ductwork is lost due to leaks, holes, and other ductwork issues. This inevitably leads to excessively high energy costs and inconsistent heating or cooling throughout the home.

This is one of the reasons why more and more homeowners are investing in heat pumps, which are undoubtedly one of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems on the market.

Heat pumps provide a more efficient way of heating and cooling your home. During the cold season, they keep your home warm not by converting electricity directly into heat, but rather by taking in the heat from the air or ground, multiplying it and then moving the heat to your home. No, they do not generate heat; they only move it.

To provide you with a more effective way of improving your home comfort, call Four Seasons Air Specialists, your trusted HVAC company in Forest Lake.

In partnership with Lennox Industries, we offer a wide range of state-of-the-art heat pumps you can choose from.

3 Reasons to Consider Switching to a Heat Pump

Lower Energy Bills

A properly installed heat pump can be 300 to 400 percent more efficient than traditional HVAC systems. In other words, for 1 unit of electricity, you get 3 to 4 units of heat.

Multiple Heat Distribution Options

Space heating throughout your home can be delivered through any mixture of under-floor heating and low temperature radiators.


Heat pumps use a refrigerant called R410A, which is known for its zero ozone exhaustion potential. A home with a heat pump installed has less impact on the environment throughout its lifespan.

Features of the Lennox Elite® Series XP16 Heat Pump

This heat pump comes with a 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and a 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The XP16 heat pump may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

The XP16 works at its lower speed most of the time for the greatest energy savings. During periods of increased heating or cooling demand, it accelerates to its higher speed.

With efficiencies of up to 17.00 SEER and an HSPF of 9.50, the XP16 can deliver substantial energy savings. In fact, it can help cut your energy bills by several hundred dollars per year.

Its dual-fuel capability can be combined with a gas furnace to enhance comfort and fuel efficiency by alternating between electric and gas heat, optimizing energy use and minimizing heating costs

High-efficiency outdoor coil provides exceptional heat transfer and low air resistance for high-efficiency operation.

The XP16 is compatible with the Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system to make your home environment even more comfortable while helping to improve the quality of your air. 

The XP16’s sound levels as low as 70 dB are much quieter than a standard heat pump. It is engineered for efficient comfort inside and quiet performance outside. The only thing you’ll notice is how great your air feels.

When the XP16 is installed with a compatible Elite® furnace, it creates a system that can switch back and forth between electricity and gas automatically, based on whichever is most cost-efficient in your area.

Its Precision-Balanced Direct-Drive Fan delivers quiet operation with patented-pending fan design.

Its two-stage scroll compressor operates at a low stage most of the time for quieter, more efficient performance.

It uses a PermaGuard Cabinet, which is a heavy-gauge, galvanized steel construction, louver coil guard, baked-on powder finish and durable zinc-coated steel base provides long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion.

SmartHinge louver design allows quick, easy access to interior components from all sides for cleaning and maintenance. It protects coils from damage and provides a clean appearance.

Its chlorine-free R-410A refrigerant provides exceptional comfort without exacting a costly environmental toll.

Drainage holes prevent damaging moisture from collecting inside the base pan.
