The Best of Both Worlds

An AtlasCare technician discussing the XP heat pump from Lennox

Much has been said about electricity versus natural gas. The present government has stated that they would like to get rid of natural gas.

(See Climate Change Action Plan.)

I don’t know when that will occur if ever, but it begs the question of which fuel you should use. I made the decision in my own home to go dual fuel: I put in an ultra high efficiency heat pump along with a 98% high efficiency furnace. I now have the best of both worlds for the foreseeable future. There is no question that the Ontario government sees heat pumps as the solution. One of the many reasons we recently took on the Lennox product line was to get access to their best-in-class heat pump technology. The XP25 is without a doubt the best air-to-air heat pump in the market. It uses inverter technology to provide variable capacity without any energy penalty and operates at the lowest sound levels in the market. I have all confidence we’ll be selling more of these advanced units own the road.
