"LENNOX HEAT PUMP IS A "LEMON" - NEVER BUY LENNOX"
I purchased a Lennox xp-15-042 Heat Pump in March 2007. Had 18 Service Calls since installation, not including 2 yearly maintenance service calls. Every January and February (wintertime), this heat pump failed...either low pressure lockout or running continuously. Both problems caused high electric bills due to running on resistance/backup heat. Spent $3800 on electric bills alone due to this heat pump's failure each winter. Unit is a total "lemon." Neither Lennox nor the Attorney General's Office would provide any assistance, resolution, or replacement. Never ever buy a Lennox heat pump. Lennox doesn't stand behind their products and cares even less about their customers.

"Leaking freon gas"
My less than 4 year old #xp15-042-230-01 heat pump leaked it's freon gas and shut down. The repair bill came to $976.22 ! The soldered joint where the suction line enters the compressor was cracked. The technician who repaired the leak said this had been a quality control problem caused at the factory. Lennox refused to warranty the heat pump because there was not a broken part ! They also said " how can I expect a joint to last longer than 4 years.? " This has been my 1st experience with heat pumps and it has not been a pleasant one.

The biggest mistake I made when building my house was installing Lennox heat pumps. I have 3 xp15 signature units ($ 18000). I have had numerous service calls. The most recent for a refrigerant leak (unit is less than 3 yrs old). I have replaced the motherboard & compressor before. Hell will freeze over before I purchase another Lennox item of any sort & I will do anything to dissuade anyone from purchasing any Lennox products. Any questions email me.
