Comparing the two units, we find many similarities and some limited differences. Both offer an Hspf heating efficiency rating of up to 8.5. A sound level of 78 is found with each unit. A registered limited warranty of ten years for the compressor and five years for the coil and functional parts applies to both.

Both are power Star rated and offer a nominal sound level of seventy-four. A two-staged execution two compressors in the Xl20i and a one compressor-staged function with the Xl16i are inside these units. Both have a registered limited warranty of twelve years on the compressors and ten years on the coil and functional parts. Extended warranties are also available.

    The expansion valve is an isenthalpic expansion, which means that the working fluid maintains its enthalpy energy. if you had a turbine the working fluid would lose its enthalpy

    Much better description than the howstuffworks site which would have completely confused me if i didnt already understand how an a/c system works. kudos!

    New inverter type mini-split heat pumps will keep your home warm down to about 5 degrees f, depending on the model. my sanyo mini-split (also called a ductless) cools all summer and heats all winter. only on really cold days (under 8 deg f or -13c) do we have to turn on some back-up heat. paying 21 cents per kwh, & using about 10 kwh per day (during cold weather) is less than 1/4 the cost of heating with oil.

    Much better use of energy than a fireplace, i know fireplaces are cozy but they also have a low effectiveness and are very bad for people with asthma and other respiratory problems.

    Well the amount of energy reclaimed from such a turbine would be very small and it is not cost effective to put one in. the expansion valve is much cheaper and there are less moving parts to break or wear so it is also more reliable.

    Heat pumps suck if you live in an area that gets under 30 degrees in the winter and thats a fact.

    Who wants to swim when it is 30 degrees f or -1 degrees celsius...
