A Feature on the Lennox XP25 Heat Pump

If you’re in the market for a new HVAC system, you probably know that choosing the right model can be quite overwhelming. Dealers can display hundreds of almost-identical units, and how can you be sure you are making the right choice?

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your friendly HVAC company in Plymouth MN that can help you narrow down your choices and find the right system.

What is ENERGY STAR®?

Established in 1992, ENERGY STAR® is a program overseen by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy that regulates the energy-efficiency standards of appliances. In order to receive the logo, manufacturers have to submit their appliances for testing by the EPA. Each category has a threshold of acceptance that devices must meet in order to be considered ENERGY STAR® compliant.

Benefits

ENERGY STAR certified furnaces have higher Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings and higher efficiency blower motors, making them more efficient than regular models.

The EPA began evaluating the impact of their program nearly two decades ago. Here are some of the actual amount of savings achieved by ENERGY STAR® appliances:

  • By 2007, U.S. households saved more than $16 billion on utility bills by using ENERGY STAR® appliances
  • In 2012, business saved as much as $50 billion on their utilities
  • In 2015, a consumer survey showed that 78 percent of people who purchased an ENERGY STAR® product were likely to recommend these products to a friend

Features of the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection XP25 Heat Pump

The XP25 is the finest heat pump Lennox makes, and one of the main components of the Ultimate Comfort System™. It’s also compatible with the entire line of Dave Lennox Signature® Collection equipment, for truly unmatched comfort.

This heat pump is ENERGY STAR® certified and is designated as one of the Most Efficient products in 2018. 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 US 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. Products that have the ENERGY STAR® label prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting rigorous energy efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

With an efficiency rating of up to 23.50 SEER / 10.20 HSPF, this product can save you hundreds of dollars each year, compared to a standard heat pump.


Precise Comfort® technology adjusts fan speed, heat and airflow capacity in increments as small as 1% for the ultimate in temperature control.

Its variable-capacity, inverter controlled operation works much like the cruise control system of high-performance automobiles, automatically making adjustments as necessary. In the XP25, cooling capacity automatically adjusts up or down, based upon cooling demand, to use only the precise amount of energy needed to maintain a temperature within 0.5 degrees of your thermostat setpoint.

SunSource® Solar-Ready option allows you to add solar modules and create a solar powered system that generates electricity for your heat pump and more. Because it’s solar ready, the XP25 can be easily combined with solar roof modules in a SunSource® Home Energy System. This means it can drastically cut your utility bills and possibly make you eligible for a federal tax credit.

SilentComfort® technology delivers sounds levels as low as 58 dB, up to 50% quieter than a standard heat pump.

When installed with the easy-to-use programmable iComfort Wi-Fi® Touchscreen Thermostat, Its iComfort®-enabled technology allows the XP25 to exchange information and make adjustments as needed to optimize performance and efficiency.

The XP25’s 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.

Its insulated compressor compartment minimizes operating sounds with innovative materials and industry-leading, vibration-isolating mounts.

Climate IQ® technology modifies system output depending on the geographical area to deliver greater comfort and humidity control.

It has 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.
