Why You Should Consider Upgrading to the Lennox EL18XCV Air Conditioner

Posted: 2021-07-20

Are you looking for ways to lower your home cooling costs? Is your existing AC due for a replacement? If so, you have come to the right place.

If you’re concerned about your AC’s energy efficiency, consider investing in a variable-speed unit. In this article, we will tell you why.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted HVAC company in Circle Pines MN. We are an authorized dealer of Lennox air conditioners, which are some of the most energy-efficient in the industry.

Understanding Variable-Speed Air Conditioners

Conventional cooling systems can only turn either on or off, and when they run, they always fire at full speed. On the other hand, variable-speed air conditioners can run at different speeds depending on your home’s cooling needs. You may ask, how does it work?

A variable-speed AC unit has a compressor that can run at varying speeds, pumping refrigerant to and from the indoor unit. For example, it’s so hot outside, so you turn your AC on and set the thermostat at the lowest temperature. The compressor will then speed up and pump coolant to the indoor unit. Also, the blower will run at a high speed. These two processes enable your AC to cool your home more quickly. The good news: when your home reaches your desired temperature, the unit will run at a lower setting to maintain that temperature. This technology enables you to save a considerable amount of money on energy.

Here’s a variable-speed air conditioner from Lennox:
