Reviews by Central Air Conditioner Series


ne is a part of Allied Air Enterprises, which is a Lennox International Inc. Co. Customers can choose from five different lines of Ducane air conditioners, which Ducane classifies in the categories of “good,” “better” and “best.” All Ducane units are manufactured in Blackville, S.C.

Ducane 4AC18 High-Efficiency 18 SEER

Ducane’s top-of-the-line model is its 18 SEER air conditioner, which features a two-stage scroll compressor. The compressor runs on a low speed much of the time to save energy, as well as operate quietly. A diagnostics board on the unit allows the customer or HVAC technician to see whether or not there is a problem quickly. The 18 SEER uses R410-A.

Ducane 4AC16 High-Efficiency 16 SEER

The 16 SEER by Ducane is part of the company’s “best” category of air conditioning units. This unit operates using R410-A as well, and features the two-stage scroll compressor for humidity control and sound-blanketed operation. A diagnostics board can also be found on this model.

Ducane 4AC14 High-Efficiency 14 SEER

The 14 SEER by Ducane is the only air conditioner the manufacturer offers today in the “better category.” This unit also is known as the “L” model. The 14 SEER is able to achieve a SEER of up to 15. The 14 SEER unit features a single-stage compressor, as well as an easily removed coil guard for maintenance.

Ducane 4AC13 13 SEER

The Ducane 13 SEER falls into the “good” category. This older model of air conditioner from Ducane uses R-22 refrigerant, a coolant banned by the Environmental Protection Agency in new models. The 13 SEER can achieve a SEER of up to 14. The units are available in 1.5 to 5 tons nominal capacity.

Care and Maintenance of Ducane Air Conditioners

The installing HVAC technician should provide care and maintenance instructions with a new Ducane air conditioner. Proper maintenance must be followed for warranty coverage.


Ducane provides a five-year warranty for all covered parts and the compressor. Online registration is not required, but the owner should keep proof of the installation date and all maintenance records.

"Ducane 3 ton central heat/air"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Have had this unit only 3 years and already replaced the following..(3) control boards, motor, (3) condensors, (1) heating strip, Had to charge twice and now the coil leaks. I have several rental properties and this is the first time I have used ducane/lennox. do not buy this product! It is nothing but problems and the company will not return calls and do not care! Even though parts are covered for 5 years, I have spent almost $1500 in service calls. The system has gone out again today after it was repaired yesterday. I wii have to buy my tenants a new unit…bu it will not be a ducane!

92% Furnace/13seer a/c system, Have always work great, I'm a Commercial hvac service tech and install Ducane equipment on the side, after reading the comments on this site I felt compelled to reply. "good service" is the name of the game, all the problems that were listed so far are service/installation related. Do your homework, ask the dealer for referances, ask your neighbors, In 8 years I've never had a repair/service call for any of my own installs. Also Commercial Equipment isn't warrantied the same as residential. If you don't get good service from the install company, don't wait around, keep looking were out there. Good Luck
