In recent years, more and more people are switching from ducted air to ductless HVAC systems. Ductless systems make good retrofit add-ons to houses with heating and cooling systems that do not utilize ducts. They can also be a good choice for room additions where extending ductwork is not feasible.

Ductless systems are also known as “mini-splits”. With this type of system, the unit is installed in a window or other opening in the wall or ceiling. The outside unit heats or cools the air and sends it directly to the room in which the indoor unit is located. Hence there are no ducts involved. Each unit functions according to its own settings, having a thermostat for every unit.

Bratcher Heating and Air Conditioning is a leading HVAC company in Bloomington, IL that can help you find the right ductless system for your needs.

This article features the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection XP25 Heat Pump.

Features of the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection XP25 Heat Pump

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 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.

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.

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 temperature within 0.5 degrees of your thermostat setpoint.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
