All About the Lennox Merit Series ML14XP1 Heat Pump

Posted: 2020-06-09

Are you looking for an all-around HVAC system that can give you absolute comfort throughout the year? If you are, be sure to consider installing a heat pump in your home. It’s a machine that can both cool or heat your home, depending on your needs.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your total HVAC company in White Bear MN. We offer a wide variety of innovative heat pumps from Lennox Industries.

Why Choose a Heat Pump?

The power of heat pumps to move heat from one place to another is made possible by using a compressor and a distributing structure of liquid or gas refrigerant. In the summer, it collects heat from your home and moves it outside. It works in reverse during the cold season.

This process uses considerably less electricity compared to running an air conditioner, making heat pumps the most efficient alternative to fuel, oil, and electric HVAC systems. When properly installed, a heat pump can easily achieve over 300 percent efficiency.

Installing a heat pump in the summer is fairly easy because temperatures are warm enough that you won’t have to suffer while waiting for the installation to be completed. Since there is less demand in early summer, more installation schedules are available for you. However, in the middle of summer, demand will start to increase, so getting one as soon as possible is best.

In mild climates, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient way to make your home comfortable. Ground- source heat pumps may even get you through your summers and winters without using a furnace or air conditioner at all. This saves you the expense of buying, operating, and maintaining two separate systems.

A heat pump is also an environment-friendly option to establish a comfortable home setting. It minimizes your carbon emissions and has an efficient conversion rate of energy to heat. This means a lot to the environment, given the degradation it is has been experiencing over the past few decades.

With years of rigorous testing under the most extreme conditions, our Quantum™ Coil–featuring a proprietary aluminum alloy exclusive to Lennox–is designed to weather the harshest elements.

When the ML14XP1 heat pump 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 the most cost-efficient for the weather conditions at the time.

The ML14XP1’s sound levels as low as 76 dB are much quieter than a standard heat pump.

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.
