Most U.S. homes are still equipped for central air and many homeowners are complaining about certain issues associated with their traditional HVAC systems. One of the things that concern them is inconsistent heating and cooling. Because of problems in the ductwork or the system itself, a traditional heating or cooling system causes some rooms to be cooler or warmer than the others. If you have a multi-story home, you will notice that the upper rooms are considerably warmer than the lower rooms. Another major issue related to conventional HVAC systems is high energy costs. Every homeowner is aware of the costs associated with operating a heat pump and an air conditioner.

If you are looking for a better way to make your home comfortable, consider going with a heat pump.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is a respected HVAC company in Coon Rapids MN. We are an accredited dealer of Lennox heat pumps, which are known to be some of the best in the world.

Why Switch to a Heat Pump?

There are several reasons to upgrade to a heat pump and one of them is versatility. A heat pump provides a great way of heating and cooling your home. During the cold months, it provides warmth by taking in the heat from the atmosphere or ground, multiplying it and then transferring the heat to your home. During the hot months, the system moves the heat from your home to the outside. Take note that in both cycles, the heat pump does not generate heat — it only moves it from one place to another.

Since it uses less fuel, a heat pump is one of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems you can buy. Normally, heat pumps can be as much as 200 percent to 400 percent more efficient than other systems. This fuel efficiency results in lower energy bills and lower carbon footprint for your home.

Features of the Lennox Elite® Series XP16 Heat Pump

This heat pump comes with a 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and a 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The XP16 heat pump may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

The XP16 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 9.50, the XP16 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.

The XP16 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 XP16’s sound levels as low as 70 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 XP16 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 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 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.
