Why You Should Upgrade to the Lennox Merit Series 16ACX Air Conditioner

Posted: 2022-07-19

Investing in a brand-new air conditioner is a significant decision, and to make sure you’re making the right choice, you should get one that not only meets your needs but also allows you to get the most savings. That’s where an ENERGY STAR-approved air conditioner excels.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your preferred HVAC company in Lino Lakes MN. We have a fleet of air conditioners approved by ENERGY STAR. Here are some reasons why you should consider buying one.

Energy Savings

If you own an ENERGY STAR air conditioner, you are operating a piece of equipment that requires less energy to perform its task. Such products are the same or better than standard air conditioners, the only difference is that they are guaranteed to use less energy.


New air conditioners are required to have a minimum seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER) of 13. What this means is that higher SEER numbers translate to better energy efficiency.

Because of their energy efficiency, ENERGY STAR-labeled air conditioners have less impact on the environment. They release fewer greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, they help create a safer, healthier environment.

Greater Home Comfort

ENERGY STAR demands products to be efficient and well-built. They allow you to maintain consistent temperatures in the best ways possible. Having said that, you have to ask your trusted HVAC company to conduct a load estimate on your home before installing the system. This process will make sure you’ll get the right-sized air conditioner to give you the comfort you need.

Features of the Lennox Merit® Series 16ACX Air Conditioner

With a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of up to 17.00, the Lennox 16ACX air conditioner can save you hundreds of dollars in cooling costs per year, compared to older air conditioners.

The 16ACX 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 16ACX reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. It meets or exceeds EPA guidelines for energy efficiency.

Pairing your air conditioner with a variable-speed furnace or air handler allows you to continuously maintain a slow circulation of air throughout your home, decreasing the amount of humidity in your home for improved indoor air quality and comfort.

Its multi-stage operation responds to changing conditions, so the 16ACX adjusts to maximize energy savings by operating at a lower speed most of the time and ramping up during periods of increased cooling demand. This multi-stage operation also translates to enhanced humidity control.

This air conditioner comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty on the compressor and a 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The 16ACX may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

Every component of the 16ACX has proven itself through extensive testing in our research labs. So you can take comfort in 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 16ACX is built with a proven, reliable scroll compressor that means years of trouble-free operation. 

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 75 dB, the 16ACX 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 that provides long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion.

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