Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 58 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 4 out of 5 by Great Product I really like this unit. It is a bit loud but gets the job done. I don't know if it should cause my room to vibrate but it does. July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So much better than the 30 year old one it replaced It was time and I went with this one for it's reputation and its quietness Have only a month of use but very happy July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow! What a difference. The old AC unit was dying and we went with the XC17 as a replacement at the recommendation of the company we chose to do the replacement. This new unit is so much quieter than the old unit and it is better protected (no exposed cooling fins on the coils like the old unit). Our old unit had some cooling fin damage due to a hail storm a few years back. The XC17 will survive hail, footballs, lawn mower handles, and just about anything else you can throw at it (literally) with no damage to the coils. I also knew this unit would be more efficient than the old unit (original unit installed in the house about 15 years ago). But I can really see the difference. I have a smart electric meter that gives me real time electricity usage data. Since the install of the XC17, my electricity usage has dropped 20-25%. The unit is paying for itself just by electricity saved. And with the smart thermostat that goes with the unit, I can program it to do just about anything. And since it's wireless, when I do want to change something, I can adjust the thermostat from my phone from just about anywhere (including the couch when I'm just too lazy to walk over to the thermostat to make the change). Only had the XC17 for a month. But so far, so good. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very cool AC I couldn't believe the effectiveness of this AC. There is no comparison to our old AC. The quietness and how it cools is very impressive. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I decided to replace my system after having issues with my A/C the past couple of Summers. After doing a lot of research, I settled on the Lennox Signature XC 17 A/C, EL296UHV Furnace, and a Lennox I-Comfort WI-FI Thermostat. The system is so much quieter than my old unit that I have to look at the I Comfort thermostat to know when it is running. The thermostat is great as well as it allows me to change the temperature in the house from my smart phone, tablet or laptop, and it has great features like five day forecast, service reminders and humidity controls. You can even upload your favorite photo to display on the screen! I haven't received an electric bill since the install so I can't comment on efficiency, but I'm confident this unit will out do my old A/C. July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Is it even running? Love my new Lennox central air conditioner. I never know if it is running or not. Have to look at the display screen. Keeps the place cool and humidity down. I am anxious to see my next electric bill. July 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Unit - Larger than older model The unit preforms as specified. My home is cool and the humidity is down. Runs quietly and efficently. July 17, 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
