Heat Pumps 101

Heat pumps are home comfort systems that move heat from a colder place to a hotter place by utilizing mechanical energy. Since they only move heat and not create it, heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient systems you can find.

Interestingly, there is still some heat in the air even if the temperature goes sub-zero. It works the same way a refrigerator does and removes the heat from the inside.

With a heat pump, you have an efficient way to heat or cool your home with minimal equipment costs and lower monthly energy expenses.

Because a heat pump does not generate heat or cold air, it gives you greater energy-efficiency. In the winter, it siphons the heat from the outside and moves it to your house.

Features of the Lennox Merit Series 16HPX Heat Pump

Responding to changing conditions, the 16HPX adjusts to maximize energy savings — operating at a lower speed most of the time and ramping up during periods of increased cooling demand. This multi-stage operation also translates to enhanced humidity control.

The 16HPX heat pump has efficiency ratings of up to 17.00 SEER and 9.5 HSPF, packing a lot of comfort into an affordable package.

Pairing your 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 16HPX 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 16HPX heat pump may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Warranty coverage with product registration.

The 16HPX heat pump is certified by ENERGY STAR®. Such products are the same or better than standard products, only they use less energy.

And you get the features and quality you expect.
