Lennox Merit Series 14HPX Heat Pump

Posted: 2018-03-14

If you are looking for a new HVAC system or upgrade your existing unit, you might be wondering what specific equipment will best meet your home’s needs. You should search for something that gives you flexibility in terms of installation and functionality.

Because of their high-efficiency levels, judicious prices and ease of installation, heat pumps are becoming a more popular choice for homeowners.

Heat pumps provide an effective way of heating and cooling your home. During winter, it provides warmth not by transforming electricity directly into heat, but rather by taking in the heat from the atmosphere or ground, multiplying it and then transferring the heat to your home.

A heat pump is one of the most efficient home heating systems you can purchase. It operates as a furnace during cold weather, and during warmer periods it also provides your home with cool air. 

These devices also provide even heating. In comparison with other heating systems, a heat pump will not give you frequent temperature fluctuations.

In the summer, a heat pump works as an air conditioner. It delivers heat from the house and produces a cooling effect throughout. This process is an efficient way of conditioning the air in your home.

In addition, heat pumps are also quiet and convenient to operate. The compressor is usually placed outside the home and helps to keep noise levels low.

Four Seasons Air Specialists — your trusted HVAC company in Vadnais Heights, MN can help you find the right unit that meets your needs. In partnership with Lennox Industries, we offer new and innovative heat pumps designed to make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient.

Ask the Heating and Cooling Experts

Getting a new HVAC system is something done best with the help of a qualified professional. One of the factors that directly affects your home comfort is the sizing of your HVAC system.

If you happen to install a heat pump that is too big for your home, it will produce too much heat than what your home actually requires. Your energy bills will shoot up due to the high power usage of the system. Another problem could be short cycling, which happens when the thermostat reaches the desired temperature too early, which shuts the system down unexpectedly. This is a serious problem, as short cycling increases the stress on the heat pump, causing failures to happen more frequently.

If the heat pump is undersized, your home will have similar problems but due to different reasons. An undersized heat pump will not be able to provide enough heat to keep the home comfortable. It will be forced to work harder than normal, in an attempt to compensate for the inadequate output. This translates to higher utility bills and shortened lifespan of the system.
