Rated 5 out of 5 by dabj01 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrumpyOldMan 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Concetta 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Psaf 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.

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.

We initially wanted a two-stage A/C unit but due to our type of furnace, we were unable to get that. We did opt for the single stage A/C unit and we are pleasantly surprised. It is VERY quiet and keeps our house cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldC Quiet and, I assume, efficient
Too early to tell much about efficiency, but it is much quieter than the old system in operation. The fan speed is controlled by the system so that it is usually not running at full speed, making it even quieter. In fairness, it has not been very hot since installation, so we haven't really put it to the test.
The iComfort thermostat works nicely, but I wish the owner could make a few adjustments to some of the fan settings instead of needing a service call for those changes. Probably most people will see no need for it. It would also be nice to have the option of seeing details of the system's operation either on the thermostat itself or through the web access to the thermostat. Example: What is the current fan speed? How much energy has the system used over various time periods?

Rated 3 out of 5 by RJerry It is quite running.
I have only had this air conditioner for about three weeks. So far it is cooling very well. I can’t give a saving estimate because I haven’t received an electric bill. Check back for a future update when I can give you more history on overall performance. Being that other consumers will be reading this I want to be as honest as possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris22 Just runs up the electric bill
I have had this unit for 2 years now. If you like seeing "system waiting" on the thermostat, then this is the product for you. I bought the entire system: furnace, air handling, and AC unit. The rest of the system works great. The AC unit could not cool a one bedroom apartment. They have replaced the coil as only 10% of it was working. I paid for the twice yearly maintenance service. Now I think the compressor is going out as the hot and cold lines are both the same warm temperature.

The XC17 is a great unit in terms of efficiency but it's still not as quiet as I had hoped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hammer10 This product saves money
We replaced our a/c unit with XC17 and couldn't be more pleased. This unit is so quiet you can hardly tell it is running when standing beside the unit. The efficient is great, we saved at least 25% on our first electric bill after installation. Great unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wolf9791 Quietest AC I've ever heard
We replaced a 40 year old AC unit with a new Lennox XC17 and can't believe the difference. Not just in cooling efficiency, but in the actual sound of the unit. I've lived in places with many other brands of central air units, but THIS is the quietest one by far. I can hear my neighbor's 60+ feet away while standing right next to mine. And at the same time it's keeping the house nice and consistently cool. I can even watch the electric meter turn at a much slower rate than our old, inefficient air conditioner. Combine this with a modulating furnace and nice thermostat and you won't regret it...

Once installed I could not believe how quiet the air conditioner was. Not only is it quiet, the unit looks very professional. Tax Credits, energy star qualified and reputation are just some of the additional things that sold me!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RichC System is quiet and efficient.
I am very pleased with my new XC17 A/C. It came with some features my old system did not have. Like the ability to dehumidify the house even if the desired temperature is already reached. And I can now see the outside temperature and humidity on the thermostat.

We bought a house that was a bit of a fixer. The unit that we replaced was 27 years old. I made it a point I wanted a cool house in the summer. I don't tolerate heat. I have a 2 story house so finding something in a decent price range was difficult. We were told by a few people a split system would be best for our home because it was a 2 story, but we could make this unit work because (And I'll save a ton of long winded stuff here) It supposedly monitors where more air needs to be pushed through. Seeing as we just put in brand new duct work, I was interested. I was afraid because a place we stayed at before we moved into out house was also a 2 story and the second floor never cooled down past 80 degrees. Needless to say, the month we stayed there, I was pretty sick a lot. (I have health concerns when it comes to heat)
So after explaining all of this, We were recommended for our price range, this model. I love it. We had a very warm winter and its only may and we have had almost triple digit weather. It keeps my house cool and the upstairs comfortable. Its quiet, Runs wonderfully.....I'm glad we decided to go with this lennox model. And I LOVE the fact its solar ready. We are putting solar on our house in a few months and this makes all of that SO much easier to handle and deal with.

The unit is outdoors & with heat pump system - when the fan is on and it snows or freezing rain, ice builds up on top of the system (grill) and the shroud around the fan is less than 1/4 inch clearence & water drips on the shroud side & freezes & turns to ice & then blocks fan from spinning & damages the motor and efficiency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Roller1 Excellent quality and very quiet in operation.
This is by far the best AC system we have ever had. The icomfort thermostat is awesome. The oustide unit is well built and looks like it will withstand the central Texas weaher with no problem. The indoor unit is so quiet, we sometimes wonder if it is even running. Dave hit a home run on this one. The installtion was done by very professional people and the end result is a well satisfied customer.

Our family loves this unit. It is very well built and it is very quiet. Unlike our old unit this Air Conditioner is very efficient and runs with a lot less power then our old unit. I am exploring the solar panel installation to save even more money.
