Lennox Elite Series XC13 Air Conditioner

Posted: 2018-07-24

Did you ever wonder when you should replace your air conditioner? Nothing is more frustrating than a broken cooling system on a hot summer day! Most of us have been there before and it’s something that no one is looking forward to going through again. While regular maintenance is important in keeping your AC in great shape, but even when properly maintained, air conditioners will eventually wear out. Having an understanding of the warning signs of an AC on the brink can help you prepare for the inevitable replacement.

Four Seasons Air Specialists, in partnership with Lennox Industries, offer some of the most energy-efficient and advanced air conditioners today. We are your trusted HVAC company in Vadnais Heights MN that has the knowledge and experience in helping homeowners find the right cooling system that fits their needs.

Warning Signs You Need to Replace Your AC


A residential air conditioner typically lasts 10 to 15 years. The older the unit is, the more chances it is to have performance issues and the need for repairs. Older air conditioners have low seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating, which means they consume more energy compared to newer models. If your existing AC has a SEER rating lower than 13.00, this can mean that it is less energy-efficient and costing you more than what is necessary.


It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a noisy air conditioner is never a good thing. If you hear banging sounds, it can indicate a broken part or an issue with the indoor blower. Rattling can mean the entire system is failing. These are only a couple of noises to watch out for when considering replacing your air conditioner. If left unchecked, they can lead to more serious damage and the need for hard to find spare parts or a total system replacement.

Inconsistent Cooling

An obvious sign that your air conditioner is about to fail is when there are parts of your home that are cooler than others. If you set your thermostat to your desired position and notice that there are inconsistencies in temperatures, this could indicate that your unit is unable to keep up with your cooling requirements.

Features of the Lennox Elite® Series XC13 Air Conditioner

This air conditioner comes with a 10-Year Limited Warranty on the compressor and 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The XC13 may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

With a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of up to 15.50, the Lennox XC13 air conditioner can save you hundreds of dollars in cooling costs per year, compared to older air conditioners.

Every component of the XC13 has proven itself through extensive testing in our research labs. So you can take comfort knowing that your conditioner will deliver reliable performance throughout the cooling season.

The compressor is the part of the air conditioner that pumps refrigerant to deliver the cooling your home needs. The XC13’s scroll compressor is engineered to perform reliably and efficiently in the harshest conditions.

To reduce operating sound levels, the XC13 uses a precision-balanced, direct-drive fan. This lets it operate at a volume as quiet as 74 dB.

Because it’s compatible with the Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system, the XC13 can help your indoor air feel cool and comfortable, while maintaining proper humidity levels.

Its high-efficiency outdoor coil provides exceptional heat transfer and low air resistance for high-efficiency operation.

Its PermaGuard™ Cabinet is a heavy-gauge, galvanized steel construction, louver coil guard, baked-on powder finish and durable zinc-coated steel base provide long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion.

Its SmartHinge™ louver design allows quick, easy access to interior components from all sides for cleaning and maintenance. Protects coils from damage and provides a clean appearance.

It has drainage holes that prevent damaging moisture from collecting inside the base pan.

Its Chlorine-free R-410A refrigerant provides exceptional comfort without exacting a costly environmental toll.
