Why Consider Buying the Lennox Merit Series 14ACX Air Conditioner

Posted: 2020-08-25

Your home’s air conditioning unit works nearly unnoticed that the only time you detect its presence is when it starts to show signs of inefficiency. However, older cooling systems usually receive more attention due to frequent failure.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your total HVAC company in Dellwood MN. We have been helping our customers establish a comfortable home over the past four decades.

Two of the Most Common Causes of AC Failure

Thermostat Problems

Your AC’s thermostat is the device that tells the system to function. It is responsible for setting up a comfortable temperature throughout your home. But sometimes, this device can cause issues to your AC such as turning it on and off abruptly.

To address this problem, you would want to make sure that the thermostat is free from any dust buildup. Dust, nicotine, and residues from volatile organic compounds such as household chemicals can affect the electrical and mechanical components of the thermostat. Using a brush or a can of compressed air, clean the thermostat’s interior parts. If the problem persists, maybe it indicates a more serious cause that requires professional attention.

A Clogged System

Your AC, just like any other mechanical and electrical machine, is bound to accumulate dust, debris, and filth that can affect its performance. These airborne particles often gather in the condensing coil, resulting in reduced efficiency and compromised cooling capacity.

If you don’t mind getting some dirt in your hands, you can turn the circuit breaker off, remove the unit’s cover, and with the use of a hose or compressed air, clean the inside and outside components of the air conditioner. Call a qualified technician if this step is unsuccessful.

Should the problem seem too severe, and the technician suggests you get a new AC instead, consider this air conditioner from Lennox.

Features of the Lennox Merit® Series 14ACX Air Conditioner

With a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of up to 16.00, the Lennox 14ACX air conditioner can save you hundreds of dollars in cooling costs per year, compared to older air conditioners.

The 14ACX is an ENERGY STAR-qualified air conditioner. This trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency makes it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance, features, and comfort. The 14ACX reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. It meets or exceeds EPA guidelines for energy efficiency.

This air conditioner comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty on the compressor and 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The 14ACX may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

Every component of the 14ACX 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 an air-conditioning unit that pumps refrigerant to deliver the cooling your home needs. The 14ACX is built with a proven, reliable scroll compressor that means years of trouble-free operation. 

The 14ACX is compatible with the exclusive Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system for indoor air that feels better – even on sweltering days.

The cooling comfort and peace of mind you get from the 14ACX is enhanced when the unit is paired with indoor air quality (IAQ) products, such as the Healthy® Climate whole-home dehumidifier. By helping control mold, mildew, and other contaminants, an IAQ accessory can make your indoor air better. Unlike some portable units, these accessories improve the air without producing ozone, a known lung irritant.

Its scroll compressor with a sound-dampening system provides low sound levels and durability, even in extreme weather conditions.

Its precision-balanced direct-drive fan delivers quieter operation and longer equipment life.

With sound levels as low as 76 dB, the 14ACX is much quieter than an old, standard air conditioner.

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