Lennox Elite Heat Pump Reviews

"Has been great for 11 years so far"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I installed a Lennox hp26-030-7p on 6/29/1998 (14 Seer; single speed)- it replaced a 15 year old Trane that had started failing; my power bill went down by $10 a month immediately, power bill has ever since been always under $100a month in hot/humid North Carolina. No problems whatsoever with this heat pump in 11 years. Had a good installer, reputable company.
