5 Reasons to Choose a Lennox Air Conditioner over Other Air Conditioners
If comfort and cost are of the utmost priority when buying or renting an Air Conditioner, then the Lennox Air Conditioner is the right match for you.
Everyone loves summer, but with the bright sunshine comes high relative humidity and elevated air temperatures, producing an uncomfortable indoor environment.
Here are the top 5 reasons why the Lennox Air Conditioner gives you the best indoor comfort and why it’s worth the investment in comparison to conventional Air Conditioners:
1. Precise Temperature
The Precise Comfort™ technology of the Lennox Air Conditioner gives you the temperature that you want, every time. You simply set your preferred temperature and your Lennox Air Conditioner changes the temperature to match your preference without delay.
With the Precise Comfort™ technology of the Lennox Air Conditioner, your chosen temperature is maintained with an accuracy of 0.5 degrees or less.
To maintain your desired temperature, the variable-capacity and inverter-controlled compressors in the Lennox Air Conditioners continuously make tiny adjustments in fan speed and cooling output.
Conventional Air Conditioners only offer single capacity and single speed mean airflow, which results in temperature swings between cycles.
2. Humidity Removal
The air in your home will still feel light and cool in the hot summer months as the Lennox Air Conditioner removes approximately 30% more humidity compared to conventional Air Conditioners.
3. Silent Comfort
Conventional Air Conditioners are non-discreet appliances; they have a distinct noise while running.
The SilentComfort™ technology of the Lennox Air Conditioner – technology that combines a specially shaped fan blade, vibration resistance and thick insulation – greatly reduces sound levels.
The Lennox Air Conditioner with its SilentComfort™ technology is 50% quieter than a conventional Air Conditioner.
4. Save the Environment
Sunlight can be converted in to usable energy to power your Lennox Air Conditioner.
A Lennox Air Conditioner is compatible with the solar roof modules in a SunSource® Home Energy System. Here’s how the SunSource® Home Energy System works:
First, the solar roof modules capture the energy from the sun and send the harnessed energy to your Lennox solar-ready Air Conditioner.
Second, the energy harnessed by the solar roof modules is used to cool your home through your Lennox Air Conditioner.
Third, the energy that’s left over is used to power other electronic devices and other small appliances in your home.
The solar roof modules can be installed on your home without major modifications. You can also add more solar roof modules whenever you want to increase the volume of energy captured from the sun.
5. Save Money
If there’s energy left after you’ve powered your electronic devices and appliances in your home, the excess energy can potentially be sold to your utility company and possibly earn you a credit.
Using SunSource® Home Energy System™ can cut your Air Conditioner bill, as well as your heating bill, by up to 50%. This also qualifies you for possible rebates and tax credits.
The Lennox Air Conditioner, in particular model XC25, is an ENERGY STAR qualified product. This means that the product is recognized by ENERGY STAR as one of the most efficient products in 2018.
“Looking for the ENERGY STAR label is a simple way to save you money and protect the environment,” EPA said. “Now EPA introduces ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2018, a new distinction that recognizes products that deliver cutting edge energy efficiency along with the latest in technological innovation. It is an award that truly represents the best of ENERGY STAR.”
“Room Air Conditioners contribute more to the summer peak demand for electricity from the electricity grid than any other household appliance,” Natural Resources Canadasaid. “On hot days, when the demand for electricity for air conditioning increases, the generation of coal-fired electricity can soar, with a corresponding increase in nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx), carbon dioxide (CO2) and other emissions that lead to smog, acid rain and climate change. By choosing an ENERGY STAR qualified room Air Conditioner, you can help the environment and realize significant electrical savings.”
You can save hundreds of dollars in your utility bill every year with the Lennox Air Conditioner model XC25 because this product has the industry-leading energy efficiency of up to 26 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio).
Air Conditioners are rated according to their SEER, which refers to the relative amount of energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. Conventional or older air conditioning systems have SEER ratings of 6 or less. Higher SEER means greater savings.
The Lennox Air Conditioner model XC25 also saves you money as the unit’s PermaGuard™ cabinet offers extra protection against corrosion and rust, extending the lifespan of this unit. It also has a 10-year limited warranty on the unit’s compressor and 10-year limited warranty on covered components.
The Lennox Air Conditioner model XC25 works with Lennox’s iComfort® S30 thermostat. This thermostat uses the GPS in your family members’ smartphones. You only have to set the automatic schedule once on the iComfort and it’ll automatically adjust your Lennox Air Conditioner to match.
Lennox iComfort detects when your house is empty and automatically changes the temperature of your Lennox Air Conditioner to a more energy-efficient setting. This thermostat also detects when a family member is on the way home and automatically changes the temperature to its regular setting. This makes your household energy savings consistent as this thermostat adapts to the schedules of your family members.
During hot summer months and on the most humid days, your smart home isn’t complete without a dependable air conditioner.
Before renting or buying an air conditioner, check first if it offers the following important features:
1. Consistent Temperature
An ideal air conditioner is one that can maintain a consistent temperature inside your home. If you set a certain temperature, this temperature should be achieved and maintained throughout the operation of the equipment.
The temperature outside your home is bound to change from time to time. The temperature inside your home, however, doesn’t have to fluctuate by the shifting conditions outdoors. Your air conditioner should be able to provide consistent temperature just like cruise control in an autonomous car which provides consistent speed set by the driver, regardless of the road and weather conditions outside the vehicle.
2. Virtually Silent
The other requisite for an ideal air conditioner is its silence. What good does it do if an air conditioner is ultra-consistent in its temperature, and yet, it’s too noisy when turned on?
Some of us want some noise in our life like the sound of our favorite band, the laughter of our kids. No one, though, wants to listen to the noisy humming of an air conditioner.
When buying an air conditioner, find out if the unit is solar-ready. A solar-ready unit can harness the power of the sun. The sun is typically up during summer months and humid days. While the sun brings the temperature up, the heat it radiates can be harnessed as energy to power home equipment – and why not, the very equipment that cools our home.
4. High SEER
When buying an air conditioner, look for a model with high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). SEER is a measure of efficiency and performance of an air conditioner. SEER particularly specifies the amount of energy required to provide a specific cooling output.
“Central air conditioners are rated according to their seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER),” the U.S. Department of Energy said. “SEER indicates the relative amount of energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. Many older systems have SEER ratings of 6 or less.”
When buying an air conditioner, look for a model that allows connectivity with your other smart home devices. In today’s interconnected world, your home equipment need not be set apart from the rest of your home devices.
Lennox Air Conditioner
The Lennox air conditioner offers consistent temperature, virtual silence and connectivity. It harnesses the power of the sun and has a high SEER.
1. Precise Comfort® Technology
The Precise Comfort® technology of Lennox air conditioner maintains a consistent temperature inside your home. This technology achieves this level of consistency by making small and continuous adjustments to its temperature output throughout the day.
In this sense, Precise Comfort® technology of Lennox operates similarly to the cruise control of an autonomous vehicle. Cruise control makes tiny and ongoing adjustments relative to the outside conditions of the car – road and weather conditions – at the same time providing overall efficiency.
Regardless of the weather conditions outside, Precise Comfort® technology of Lennox maintains the temperature level that you choose by conducting minute by minute adjustments to the airflow and cooling. Because of this technology, your indoor temperature stays consistently within 0.5 degrees of your chosen temperature, without any cold and hot swings.
2. SilentComfort™ Technology
Even though there are no financial savings for having a virtually silent air conditioner, having one directly affect your comfort. Most air conditioning systems today are quieter compared to those produced in past years. Lennox takes this development to the next level with its SilentComfort™ technology.
Compared to a standard conditioner, the Lennox air conditioner is 50% quieter. It also comes with an industry-exclusive composite fan design with insulated compressor compartment and variable-speed operation to help reduce sound levels.
3. SunSource® Home Energy System
The Lennox air conditioner – in particular, the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection – is solar-ready. This means that this particular air conditioning unit is designed to work with solar modules in Lennox’ SunSource® Home Energy System. You can use a few solar modules at first and add more (up to 16 modules total) when your budget permits.
The SunSource® Home Energy System of Lennox harnesses solar power – utilizes solar power first prior to using electricity from your utility company – to run your air conditioner.
SunSource® Works this way:
Solar modules harness energy from the sun and send it to your Lennox solar-ready air conditioner.
The harnessed energy is first used to cool your home.
The energy that’s left is utilized to run small electronics and appliances in your home.
The energy left can potentially be sold back to your utility company and earn you a credit.
Benefits of the SunSource® Home Energy System of Lennox include:
It cuts your cooling bills by up to half.
It makes you eligible for possible tax credits and rebates.
It can be installed with no major modification requirements to your home.
This solar system can be expanded by adding more solar modules whenever you want.
Harnessing power from the sun is environment-friendly. This reduces the need for electricity generated by power plants, which in turn results in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
4. High SEER
The Lennox air conditioner has an industry-high SEER rating of up to 26.00, saving you hundreds of dollars every year on your utility bills. The higher the SEER, the greater your energy savings. The typical SEER ratings of other air conditioners range from 13 to 18.
According to Natural Resources Canada, space cooling comprised 1.2% of the Canadian household energy consumption, 4.3% lighting, 14.4% other home appliances, 17.3% water heating and space heating 62.8%.
5. Connectivity to Nest Thermostat
Your Lennox air conditioner can be connected to your Nest thermostat. When paired with Nest thermostat, your air conditioner will familiarize your routine and adjust the temperature accordingly. Connect with us today to how to save money while installing a new AC.
