Being a HVAC contractor and having went to multiple Lennox lunch-and-learns, hopefully I can offer the perspective you need to make an educated buying decision. In this article we will explore inside-information on one of the top manufacturers’ HVAC system in the US. This information is a combination of facts and my experience.
Getting my start in the HVAC industry in 2013, I found myself with a company that primarily sold Lennox equipment. I went to a ton of great classes on Lennox Zoning solutions and got to know a few big names there, hey Ken!
Lennox 14 SEER equipment is the baseline SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating that can be sold here in the southern region of North America.
The simple communication methods of this machine means less expensive repairs if a component on the system should fail.
Lennox’s high efficiency outdoor coil- provides exceptional heat transfer and low air resistance for high efficiency operations.
“Leaking Lennox”; slang I heard used in my early years in the industry. They had a evaporator coil law suit in 2012. They did have problems with their evaporator coils leaking refrigerant, but they were quick to settle the mess; Lennox is offering a material warranty on certain evaporator coils (make sure your HVAC company checks warranty information for you).
Lennox includes a five year warranty on covered components including compressor. This product may be eligible for valuable ten year extended warranty coverage with customer product registration.
Lennox 14acx compressors have been known to be on the noisy side, this is because the compressor only runs in one speed. “Outdoor unit is quite loud. We can hear it operating through the outside wall. When we walk outside by it, sounds like a propeller engine. Quite surprised by the high decibel of noise”-Ed Rosario
Another customer commented: “Nice unit, quiet and cools well. Seemed a fair value as well.”
In conclusion, Lennox 14acx systems are a good solution for the home owner who wants a new HVAC system without breaking the bank and with parts readily available when mechanical failure occurs. If you found this article helpful, please like and share!
