Why You Should Upgrade to the Lennox Elite Series EL16XP1 Heat Pump

Posted: 2022-05-03

The idea of having to replace a failing furnace can be quite inconvenient. But what if your air conditioner bids goodbye at the same time? How will you handle the situation? Well, if you want to save money on a new system and installation expenses, you might want to take a look at upgrading to a heat pump instead.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your leading HVAC company in Hugo MN. For over forty years, we have been helping families establish energy-efficient and comfortable homes.


A heat pump is an HVAC system that uses a compressor and liquid refrigerant to move heat energy from one place to another. During the cold months, it will remove heat from the outside and transfer it to your home. The process is reversed during the hot months, giving you comfort all year round.

Consider this heat pump from Lennox.

Features of the Lennox Elite® Series EL16XP1 Heat Pump

Elite® Series takes the Lennox® promise of exceptional comfort and performance to the next level. This superior product family delivers remarkable efficiency. It's time to elevate your environment.

This heat pump comes with a 10-Year Limited Warranty on the compressor and a 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The EL16XP1 heat pump may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

This heat pump is ENERGY STAR® certified. ENERGY STAR products are the same or better than standard products, only they use less energy. To earn the ENERGY STAR label, furnaces must meet strict energy efficiency criteria set by the US Environmental Protection Agency or the U.S. Department of Energy. Since they use less energy, these products save you money on your electricity bill and help protect the environment by causing fewer harmful emissions from power plants. And you get the features and quality you expect.

The EL16XP1 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 9.80, the EL16XP1 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.

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.

The EL16XP1 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 EL16XP1’s sound levels as low as 71 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 EL16XP1 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 a 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 that 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.
