Lemon of a Lennox Central Air Conditioner

My Lennox central air conditioner is 6 years old and broken. Why?! It was a lemon from the beginning.

The first year we discovered the central ac unit had the fan installed upside-down. The ac unit turned totally white from frost and discovered it was installed with the fan upside-down, Why?

the fan was turned right side but didn't last long so a new fan was installed. 5 years later the fan nor the compressor are working.

Why?? It will be a cold day in hell for me to buy another Lennox central ac unit.

your unit is too small
by: Anonymous

If your house is 28000 square feet like you say, your 4 ton unit is too small. Therefore it is working harder to cool all that square footage. In Vegas they install 4 ton units to cool a square footage of only 1500 square feet. You need a commercial unit for a house that size.

Lennox Central Ac Unit Short Life Span
by: Anonymous

I live in Texas, and my home is about 28,000 sq ft running on one Lennox 4 ton central air conditioner unit and approximately four years old. I think i have at least 2 summers in which 1 the fan locked up then my second year in a new home. And now went out again

coils.
by: Donna

Had to replace evaporator coil after just 1 1/2. Sure, Lennox hvac has a ten year warranty, however it only covers the part. The labor is going to cost me well over $500!

Never again...

lennox ac model hs-26-030-6p

This central air unit was installed by the builder in Dec. 2005 and since then the outside coil was leaking and had to be replaced. Lennox company provided the part but the installation cost me $700.00.

Since then I have had to spend another $ 220.00 on a start up capacitor. My neighbors unit was installed at the same time, and they have had to replace their whole unit. I would not consider buying a Lennox HVACs. Lennox is living off its old reputation and now they are making junk. Don't buy a Lennox. .
