Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice looking, and fairly quiet. Seemed easy enough to install. Was in in about 6 hours. Looks nice outside,and is quiet ,but not as quiet as my old one. Seems the 2 stage timer didn't work as it should and tech. added a relay to make it work. August 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works great The unit is louder than I thought it would be not that its to loud I was just looking for really quiet. August 10, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by I agree with the previous comment of the unit being noisy when it kicks on and off I bought this unit a year ago because of its high effeciency and it's review for being a quiet unit. When the unit starts up it has a jolting loud start-up it wakes me up at night and the the noise inside from the air blowing causes us to have to turn up our television almost to the maximum volume setting and with the unit turning on for ten minutes then turns off. Our last unit was not a Lennox and lasted 30 years, but we went with Lennox due to the solar capabilities. But, right now I am a little worried due to the research I have read stating that it is not a good thing for a unit to cool after ten minutes then turn off on a regular basis because it is hard on the unit and for the price I paid for the unit...I hope this is not true. I also thought I would get a tax credit but did not. August 1, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by So far it is cooling well. Have only had 1 unit for 2 weeks and the other for about 3 months. I am pleased that the outside unit is much smaller for the same sized unit we had. Seems quiet. I like that we only have to change the filter once per year. July 30, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by so far so good We have only had a few weeks & the system is working great July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quite and efficient We are pleased with this air conditioning unit. We found it to be reasonably priced while providing efficient cooling. We would recommend this unit to anyone considering adding air conditioning or upgrading their existing unit. July 25, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by This unit sounds like a bad water hammer. I bought the XC16 about 3 months ago along with a new evaporator coil. The unit cools the house very well however it is when it kicks on and off, it sounds like it is coming apart. It is quiet when running but extremely noisy when it starts up and shuts off. I thought scroll compressors were quieter then piston compressors but this CX16 sounds worse then my old piston unit. This is the 3rd Lennox AC I have owned but kind of sorry I went with this brand now. July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Efficient cooling We replaced a 30 year old system with this new Lennox. The two-stage cooling system is welcomed, as it speeds up when necessary. Much more efficient cooling. July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value We were wanting a 2 stage unit, but most were out of our price range. This one was a good blend of price and features. It's quiet and only really comes off the first stage under pretty warm conditions. July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet and great features We are so pleased with this air conditioner. The 2 stage is something we have never had. The extra circulation with the fan keeps the house very nice. The unit is very quiet and looking at the electric bill for the first couple of months very efficient. We had great service and are really pleased the we decided on this unit. July 20, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Unit It's a great system. It cools our house in minutes no matter how hot it is in the house and how hot it is outside. Also, you can't tell when it's on. It's so quiet. It works beautifully! July 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far, so good! The two-stage cooling combined with the variable speed air handler results in efficiency and uniformity in how our home is cooled. It's still too soon after our purchase to offer any comments on reliability, but so far we've been very pleased. July 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice quite unit with great cooling. This new AC unit is quiet and much faster at cooling the house than our old AC unit. The electricity costs appear to be lower now also. July 14, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by BRRRRRRRRRR Had this unit installed in May to replace 14 year old builder basic that came with new house. Old unit could not keep house cool in Atlanta summers. We got used to going to bed with house at 80. The new unit is great. Through June, we have been able to easily keep house at 75. My wife is happy! June 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 we love the two stage feature we set the thermostat at 79 and our house temp. is perfect. June 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the features The control panel is great. Love that it can be monitored via Internet. The compressor has a very loud start up. Cools well though. June 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet/ efficient system. We replaced an older unit with this system. Our old system was noisy. This one is much quieter. I can't wait to see the savings on our utility bills. June 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet cooling Two stage is new to us and while we have not experienced the second stage very often, the first stage is incredibly quiet and efficient. June 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by COMFORT UNIT IS COMFORTABLE TO THE EAR AND SHOULD BE RATHER ECONOMICAL. June 19, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Loudest A/C Unit ever The XC-16-048-230 A/C unit (New: 02-06-2012), is VERY loud. Purchased an entire Lennox HVAC system (Heat-Cool-Filter-Thermostat) at that time. Everything but the A/C is working well. The AC is much louder than the builder grade AC unit we replaced and easily is the loudest in our neighborhood. Had it looked at multiple times over the past 24 months, but I'm told the sound of the unit is as designed. It is difficult for me to believe that Lennox would design and sell such a loud unit. June 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the two stage I use the xc16 with a harmony 3 zone panel. At night I can cool the upstairs while letting the temperature rise a bit downstairs. Unit is very quiet and saves me money compared to a normal unit. January 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by REDUCED ENERGY COST 40% AND QUITE WE HAVE EXPERIENCED REDUCED ENERGY COST 40% IN THE FIRST YEAR AND THE MULTI-STAGE FEATURE MAKES IT RUN SILENT WHILE MAINTAINING OUR COMFORT MUCH MORE CONSISTANTLY THAN OUR OLDER TRANE UNIT. December 13, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by This is a poor quality unit The Coil has been replaced two times. The Expansion Value has been replaced three times. Probably has had the Capacitor replaced 15- 20 times. The service company is embarrassed. I would have to be honest and say the unit is a peace of JUNK. The service company has been very good. November 11, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Air conditioning costs are higher than my old Lennox product. The system was sold as an energy star system, but based on my experience to date, I should have replaced the coils on my 1995 air conditioner. The current unit is using more energy. System noise is about comparable to the old unit - not bad. August 25, 2013
