Why Consider Buying the Lennox Merit Series ML14XC1 Air Conditioner

Posted: 2020-08-18

The technology employed by your air conditioner makes your summers as relaxed and comfortable as possible. The high temperatures of this season are supposed to give you problems, but thanks to your trusty AC, you manage to stay productive. However, your cooling system will not be with you forever. Typically, air conditioners last from 10-12 years, and they suffer the most breakdowns in the previous two years of their life. What's unfortunate is that during this time, your system will show signs of inefficiency, telling you it's only a matter of time before it permanently shuts down.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your friendly HVAC company in Woodbury MN. We offer a wide variety of air conditioners made by Lennox, one of the best names in the industry.

In case you're wondering, here are some of the most common problems associated with old air conditioners:

Subpar Performance

Old air conditioners are ill-famed when it comes to energy efficiency and overall performance. Even when the system is reasonably maintained, its parts will grow old, nonetheless. Such failing parts cause a significant decrease in their efficiency.

Refrigerant Leaks

Warm air, frozen coils, and a sticky feeling are just some of the issues associated with refrigerant leaks. These problems are inconvenient and harmful to the environment, especially if you have an AC that runs with R22. This refrigerant has been banned from the market due to its destructive effects on the ozone layer.

Electrical Issues

The air conditioner's job may seem effortless, but it's more complicated than you might think. It's a machine that consists of many electrical and mechanical parts. Wires are connecting the fans, compressors, coils, and over time, they fail. Frayed wiring or busted capacitors are just some of the problems old air conditioners may have, and you don't want to run an AC with faulty electrical components.
