It’s no surprise that homes with heat pumps installed have lower monthly energy bills than homes with traditional heating or cooling systems.

However, proper operation is still a prerequisite to these savings. According to the Department of Energy, proper maintenance is key to efficient operation of heat pumps. The difference between the energy consumption of a well-maintained heat pump and a severely neglecting unit ranges from 10 percent to 25 percent.

One of the easiest things you can do to ensure your heat pump works as smoothly as possible is to make sure it has clean filters. It is recommended to clean or replace your filters at least once a month or as needed, and observe the manufacturer’s guidelines for maintenance.

When a heat pump has clogged filters, it suffers from poor airflow, which decreases the systems’ performance and worse, can damage your expensive HVAC system.

In addition to cleaning the filters, you should also clean the outdoor coils and the fan. Before doing so, be sure to turn off the power. Moreover, clean the area surrounding the outdoor unit and remove vegetation and clutter that can hinder proper airflow.

For best results, contact your preferred HVAC company in Edina MN to perform annual system maintenance. Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is one of the best contractors in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

If you’re looking for a brand-new heat pump, check out the 16HPX from Lennox’s Merit Series.

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.
