A Spotlight on the Lennox Elite Series XC16 Air Conditioner

Posted: 2018-07-03

Your home’s central air conditioner is a significant investment in your family’s overall comfort and safety.However, it’s never meant to last for life. Typically, after its first 10 years, your system will show signs of inefficiency and inability to maintain consistent indoor temperatures.

Ideally, your cooling system should be able to maintain optimum comfort in all areas of your home, reduce humidity levels, and let everyone in your family enjoy their activities when they’re awake and sleep well at night.

However, even when you’re good at maintaining your air conditioner, you will reach a point where it can no longer function well, especially during the hottest days of summer.

Your local HVAC company in Lino Lakes MN should be able to help you determine whether your existing unit is due for a replacement. Four Seasons Air Specialists is here to give you a few signs that may indicate that it’s time to get a new cooling system.


If your unit is close to ten years old or older, you’re likely paying more than the average cooling costs in your area since your air conditioner may not be working efficiently.

Too Much Noise

When an air conditioner is operating with excessive noise, it’s possible that there is a problem with the unit’s indoor coil, a certain broken part or and unbalanced indoor blower. If you hear rattling noises, it could mean that the whole system is failing. If these noises are neglected, they can lead to even more serious problems and the inevitable need for a replacement.

A Dusty Home

If you notice that your home has become dusty, you should pay close attention. This can be caused by leaks in your ductwork, which compromises the system’s efficiency. These leaks can lead to the constant presence of dust in your home, which creates a poor indoor air quality. When the air in your home is jeopardized, you’re putting everyone at risk of developing or aggravating respiratory and skin diseases.

If you experience any of these warning signs, getting a new air conditioner could mean the difference between staying comfortable and risking your family’s health.
