"Where do I go to get help on my cost to fix this?"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Called Lennox for help on a repair. They said no and would only send the new coil to Air Temp, who put it in. The cost out of pocket to me was $900.00. This was only 3 years old. They had a class action back in 2014 and 2015. This is one of the poorest AC units in my 30 years of having AC units. Is there a resource for me to charge this to Lennox?

"Working Well for us."

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

We have been in our new home for a few years now and our air conditioner has been able to get us through some really hot and humid summers. In Kansas City you get some very strange weather and some big extremes when it comes to hot and cold. Well, so far our Lennox AC has always been able to handle the job and get us through the hot months without any issues. It doesn't take long at all for it to get our whole house cooled down and the temperature feeling nice and comfortable again. I think it also does pretty good with energy efficiency because our bills have been quite a bit cheaper than at our old house. To be fair the old house was bigger but still the difference in the energy savings is more than the size should account for. I would recommend this AC to anyone.

"Repair daily"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We have had this unit for three months and it still doesn't work. Many parts have been replaced and it still shuts down after one cycle. It's the worst home product we have ever purchased. Do not recommend this unit. UPDATED 7/13/15: Installed April 2015, it's now July 2105 and the unit still doesn't work. I have had 7 service calls, numerous parts replaced, reset, or parts added for better stability. Our 38-year-old Rheem was more reliable. Our heating supply company is wonderful at showing up to repair it, but Lennox Corp. is involved and they can't figure out why it doesn't work. That being said, we have no air conditioner while Lennox tries to figure out what to do. Our retailer has even offered to give us our money back! However, Lennox, I will call every day till it's fixed; you're not getting out of this through my retailer. Highly recommend you buy anything other than a Lennox!

"Lennox XC-14 Air Conditioner"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

This unit was installed two years ago. It's never worked right. The utility bill for electric is 40% higher than the old unit – It was 25 years old. It also doesn't remove the humidity from the air and has caused the carpeting to buckle in the house. Now the service company that installed the unit wants me to replace the low side service port condenser and fill it back up with freon. The unit is two years old!!!! Both Lennox and "Service Experts" of Overland Park, ks should be ashamed of themselves.

"No AC again!"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

In 2009 we replaced our old ac unit that was working but older. In 2010 the dealer replaced the outside part under warranty. The unit was not working. Now in 2012 the outside unit is not working again. We never had a problem with the old unit. But this one… We use ac very little a few weeks a year.

Other XC14 Reviews

There are a couple of posts on hvac-talk.com from homeowners asking about the sound levels of the XC14. The first one asks for a comparison between the XC14 and Lennox’s XC17, and while it sounds as though the XC17 is quieter, there were a few comments saying the difference is minimal. Most responses to the second post said that the XC14 is a pretty quiet unit.
