While central air can provide you conditioned air throughout your home, it can also cause a number of issues such as inconsistent heating and cooling and ductwork problems.
If you are looking for an energy-efficient alternative to heat or cool your home, you might want to consider getting a heat pump.
During winter, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during summer, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than produce heat, heat pumps can provide similar space conditioning at as little as 25 percent of the cost of operating a traditional heating or cooling system.
Bratcher Heating and Air Conditioning is an HVAC company in Bloomington, IL that offers innovative heat pumps designed to help you achieve consistent heating and cooling for your home.
This article talks about the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection XP21 Heat Pump.
Features of the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection XP21 Heat Pump
With an efficiency rating of up to 19.20 SEER / 9.70 HSPF, this product can save you hundreds of dollars each year, compared to a standard heat pump.
Two-Stage cooling allows the XP21 to run more efficiently and produce more even temperatures than a conventional single-stage system.
This heat pump is ENERGY STAR® certified and is designated as one of the Most Efficient products in 2017. 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.
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.
Federal, state and local tax rebates and incentives may be available with a SunSource solar installation.

Heat pumps are good retrofit add-ons to homes with heating and cooling systems that do use have ducts. They can also be an excellent choice for room additions where extending ductwork is not possible. Also, if you have rooms that are rarely used such as guest rooms and libraries, a heat pump can be beneficial to you.
