Why You Should Upgrade to the Lennox Merit Series ML14XC1 Air Conditioner

Posted: 2021-08-17

Don’t you wish that oil and gas prices were dirt cheap, so you won’t have to worry about running your AC 24/7? In a perfect world, energy costs shouldn’t be an issue. But we live on a planet with diminishing natural resources, so the only way for energy prices to go is up. But don’t fret. It’s not the end of the world. You can deal with increasing gas prices by making wise choices, one of which is getting rid of your old, inefficient air conditioner and switching to a new, significantly more efficient unit.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your preferred HVAC company in Mahtomedi MN. We offer an array of energy-efficient air conditioners engineered by Lennox Industries.


Investing in a high-efficiency AC offers a lot of benefits, including energy savings. When compared to old units, high-efficiency cooling systems have a significantly higher SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio). With this measure, units that have a higher rating allow you to save more money on energy. Having said that, you should consider improving your home’s insulation and investing in energy-saving programmable thermostats to maximize your savings.

This transition also helps reduce your carbon footprint and increase your home’s resell value. And let’s not forget that high-efficiency AC units give you greater comfort and better indoor air quality.

Here’s a high-efficiency cooling system from Lennox.

Features of the Lennox Merit® Series ML14XC1 Air Conditioner

With a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of 17, the Lennox ML14XC1 air conditioner can save you hundreds of dollars in cooling costs per year, compared to older air conditioners.

This air conditioner comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty on the compressor and covered components. The ML14XC1 may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

The ML14XC1 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 ML14XC1 reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. It meets or exceeds EPA guidelines for energy efficiency.

Every component of the ML14XC1 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 cooling comfort and peace of mind you get from the ML14XC1 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.

For greater energy efficiency, the ML14XC1’s durable Lennox Quantum® coil is engineered from a fortified aluminum alloy to deliver reliable performance, even in harsh outdoor environments. It’s constructed from fortified aluminum alloy, helping it resist corrosion in harsh conditions like coastal environments.

With sound levels as low as 73 dB, the ML14XC1 is much quieter than a standard air conditioner.

The ML14XC1 is compatible with the Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system to make your home environment even more comfortable while improving the air quality.

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 SmartHinge™ louver design allows quick, easy access to interior components from all sides for cleaning and maintenance. Protects coils from damage and provides a clean appearance.

It has drainage holes that prevent damaging moisture from collecting inside the base pan

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

This product is eligible for up to a maximum of $300 tax credit. The system must be installed in your main home owned in the United States; rentals or new construction do not qualify.
