"NEVER BUY A LENNOX"
For 4 years I have been fighting with Lennox. I purchased a new heatpump hvac, in the summer, waited 3 weeks for delivery. Winter came, my bills were over 700/month. Summer came, ac didn't work, waited 3 weeks for parts. Winter...700/month bills, summer, ac didn't work, new unit, again, mild winter 450/month bills, 5/12 ac doesn't work. Draw your own conclusion about my rating. Call customer care...every time 30 minute hold, rude people on the phone...this is customer care.
