LP Gas customers should consider an air sourced heat pump. What is it? This is an air conditioner that can cool your home in the summer and heat your home in the winter. When the weather is milder like spring and fall you use your heat pump to heat which uses electric efficiently instead of LP gas. Below 32℉ this unit will automatically switch to your LP gas furnace so this is what we would call a dual-fuel heating system.
Why? Because electric rates over the last 9 years have gone up up at about 4-8% while LP gas prices have gone up 40-60%. By having a heat pump you can save 15-25% on your annual heating bill. These units will make back the additional cost from going from standard air conditioning to a heat pump in 2-5 years.
All Lennox units feature an expansion valve on the indoor coil. This helps to reduce wear and tear on the compressor and keeps it operating at maximum efficiency. All Lennox indoor coils also feature an anti-mold growth drain pan. Contact Greg at ☎ (231) 796-3403 to learn more.
Air Conditioning Efficiency-SEER Rating
For air conditioners, this metric is called a SEER rating - Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.
Higher the SEER ratings means greater efficiency. As of January 2006, the federal government mandates that all new central air conditioning equipment be at least SEER-13.
