A Feature on the Lennox Elite® Series XC16 Air Conditioner

Having extensive warranty coverage for your air conditioner gives you total peace of mind, knowing that no matter what happens to the system at any given point in time, you’re covered.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted HVAC company in Shoreview MN that carries the Lennox Elite® Series XC16 Air Conditioner, which comes with a 10-year limited warranty on the compressor and a 5-year limited warranty on covered parts.

Understanding Your Air Conditioner’s Warranty

Buying a new central air conditioner is a serious investment in your home. That’s why when you shop for a new AC, you should compare different units, including the types of warranties they come with. In case of failure within a few weeks or a few years after, having a comprehensive warranty coverage will help lower the costs of repair and minimize your disappointment during an AC emergency.

Warranty Term

Even if a system is marketed to last up to 20 years, you should still consider the duration of the warranty coverage. AC repairs can be costly, so it is wise to look for warranties that have the longest terms.

Covered Parts

Warranties differ from brand to brand. They also differ in timeframes for various parts, especially the major ones. One of the parts that is the most costly to repair or replace is the compressor, so be sure that this part is covered in the warranty.

Extended Warranty

Some manufacturers offer an additional 5 to 10 years of coverage on parts and labor. When you are being offered an extended warranty, be sure to take note of its details, including the availability of warranty service, the waiting time for a technician to fix the system, especially during the hottest months of the year, and the contractor’s tenure.
