Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 86 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product. Could not be more pleased with this system. Operates so quietly and efficiently that we are hardly aware it is on. The "set it and forget it controls" are great. The fact that it is made completely in the U.S. was another selling factor. I would readily recommend this unit to anyone in need of a new system. I think that it is the best on the market. December 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by quietest ac, didn't know it was on This ac unit was so quiet I had to check to make sure it was on. We replaced a unit that was 7 years old and already we see a huge difference in bill cost. Well worth the upgrade. October 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Quiet but not so comfortable We have only had the XC17 for two weeks but last weekend it got up to 96 so we had a chance to run the A/C.We would set our old unit at 78 for comfort but when I would get hot I'd sneak it down to 77 till wife complained it was to cold. From 98 to 100 degrees outside our old unit would hardly shut off. Our new unit needs to be set at 76 to match old 78 comfort level and 75 or 74 to reach my comfort level of the old 77 setting. The blower fan doesn't seem to blow as hard as our old unit either not sure if its a variable speed or single. I hung a thermometer next to the new icomfort thermostat to check indoor temp and they are reading the same. Installer kept old thermostat so i can't check how accurate it was .Very quiet oh yes just worried if i'm really saving any money running it at 75 cycling on and off every 10 minutes October 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet and efficient! Despite the initial reaction to the unit's large size (compared to my old 10 SEER unit), it is very attractive. Furthermore, I hardly ever hear it. There literally has to be no sound within the home for me to hear the compressor kick in. Saw a recognizable decrease in my electric usage during peak months as compared to previous summers. We are very happy with the XC17! October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet- Cools Great After having a system installed 13 years ago that I had so much problem with (it was not a Lennox model) this system works 100% better and as I expected the original system to work like. This exceeds my expectations. I put the temp on 70 it's 70 in the house. Believe it or not that wasn't the case with the first system. October 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very quiet. The unit appears very efficient, and is very quiet, in spite of the size of the unit. October 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best air-conditioner we've owned! I am especially impressed by the quiet operation. It cools the whole house, unlike our old one. Also, we really like the thermostatic control and filtering system for the the A.C. and the furnace. October 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by this AC unit is so quiet My next door neighbor has noticed she can't even hear this unit running. It cools my house so quickly. Very impressive unit and I look forward to seeing the lower electric bill! September 24, 2014

*This chart compares the 5-year savings you can expect from a 18.00 SEER air conditioner vs. existing equipment with a 10.00 SEER rating and industry-standard equipment with a 13.00 SEER rating. The region used to calculate household fuel and utility costs reflect a cross-section of cities in the U.S. In addition to geography, cooling costs are based on 3-ton capacity specifications, with 1,600 cooling hours per year and 11.35 cents per KWh (Source: EIA National average electric rate-Rolling 12 months ending July 2009). Your actual costs will vary depending on the weather, local fuel rates, system settings and your personal lifestyle.
**iComfort Wi-Fi® Touchscreen Thermostat must be installed with an iComfort-enabled indoor unit for maximum performance.
***Consult your tax expert before claiming energy efficiency tax credits.
****Must be accompanied by either a variable speed air handler or furnace and the ComfortSense® 7000 Series touchscreen thermostat
