Why You Should Consider Upgrading to the Lennox MPB Mini-Split Heat Pump

Posted: 2021-09-14

When it comes to home comfort, furnaces and air conditioners are the homeowners’ go-to systems to provide their preferred temperatures. However, heat pumps are a  versatile option that allows you be comfortable regardless of the outside weather. During mild days and nights, a heat pump is a more energy-efficient way to heat or cool your home. Since it only consumes electricity for power rather than to create heat, a heat pump offers an unmatched energy efficiency rate.

Heat Pumps 101 

Conventional methods of heating such as electric space heaters only generate heat that is equal to the amount of electricity used. The best furnaces on the market converts up to ninety-nine percent of fuel into heat. On the other hand, a heat pump only uses electricity to start the evaporator, compressor, and condenser, draw heat from the inside and take it outside. This process allows a heat pump to provide more than three units of heat for every unit of electricity used. In other words, a heat pump can have  an efficiency rate of as much as 300 percent.

A heat pump is a home appliance that uses electricity and refrigerant to move heat from one place to another. It works by removing heat from the inside and moving it to a refrigerant coolant, which is then compressed. Then, the coolant is moved to the outdoor unit, which then passes air over the hot coolant, lowering its temperature to accommodate the cooling needs of your home. The process is reversed whenever you need heating in your home instead of cooling.

A heat pump is a more practical and economical way to heat or cool your home compared a furnace or air conditioner. Did you know that  even when temperatures get below the freezing point, you can still benefit from a heat pump? During winter, combining a heat pump with your existing furnace is a highly energy-efficient way of heating your home. While the heat pump will still run, you can now use your furnace at a lower setting to provide home comfort without having to spend too much money on energy.
