Dave Lennox started out in the furnace business, building the world's first riveted-steel furnace in 1890. The company introduced a line of air conditioners in 1952, changing its name from Lennox Furnace Company to Lennox Industries, Inc. Today, Lennox continues the tradition of innovation by offering powerful yet efficient cooling options.
The Dave Lennox Signature Collection includes the XC21 air conditioner, which is approximately 13 times quieter than a standard air conditioner and offers a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) rating of up to 20.5, one of the best in the industry. The XC21 can save homeowners up to 60 percent on their energy bills and operates with environmentally friendly R410A refrigerant. The XC21 features the Lennox System Operations Monitor, the industry's first on-board cooling system diagnostics tool. It carries a 10-year limited warranty on the compressor and covered components.
Lennox's Elite Series offers air conditioners with up to 16.50 SEER ratings with features designed for quiet operation. The XC15 model features patented SilentComfort technology and is Energy Star qualified, meaning it is the same or better than standard products yet it utilizes less energy. The innovative CopeLand Scroll Compressor allows units to operate at low speed most of the time, contributing to the quiet operation and offering excellent humidity control.
For economical home cooling options, look to the Merit Series. These affordable units offer a minimum SEER of 13 and several are Energy Star qualified for added savings. A 5-year limited warranty on covered components guarantees durability.
Lennox's Harmony III Zoning System allows homeowners to divide their homes into four distinct zones, eliminating hot and cold spots and providing superior comfort and energy-efficiency. The Harmony III works with standard heating and cooling systems and offers automatic changeover for times of the year when both heating and cooling may be necessary for maximum home comfort.
