The Lennox XC14 is a single-stage Energy Star qualified air conditioner with an efficiency rating of up to 16.00 SEER. It features a scroll compressor and a high-efficiency outdoor coil which provides excellent heat transfer and increases efficiency. A precision-balanced direct-drive fan helps keep sound levels as low as 70 decibels. The unit’s PermaGuard cabinet is constructed of heavy gauge galvanized steel with a baked-on powder finish, providing protection against corrosion as well as the elements. The XC14 is designed to work with the Humiditrol whole-home dehumidification system to help maintain optimal moisture levels.
I recently replaced the central air conditioning system in my house with the Lennox Elite XC14 after a friend recommended it. It's quiet, clean and small, and for the last 5 months has cooled our home without any problem. I also like that it is energy star efficient- we are saving money already. My only complaint is that it takes a little longer to cool our 2600 square foot house than our previous (much older model). Once it gets going, however, it does great. We are very happy about it and would buy it again or recommend it to a friend without reservation.
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.
