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 5 out of 5 by columbiaresident Great product so far
Only had this a few months, but our house is so much more comfortable with this unit. Thermostat and accompanying iPhone app is great.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DBlueBell Great unit. Not that quiet though.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RonDonofrio Poor Design
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.

We just had the XC17 and the SLP 98 Furnace installed. The AC is so quiet, it's amazing! The new iComfort thermostat is really "cool"! I use my iPad to manage my temps. Awesome!

We have been extremely happy with our new heating/air conditioning unit. It is easy to maintain, has an exceptional thermostat with large display, and runs quietly. We especially like the purification unit which supports better health for our family.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rjs66 Quiet outdoors, but noisy indoors!
When my 30 year old Lennox A/C compressor finally wore out, I bought an XC14 which the literature said was very quiet. Well... it is indeed much quieter outdoors than my 30 year-old Lennox was, but it is much, much noisier indoors! There is a loud buzzing which seems to radiate from the refrigerant lines inside the house. It is quite loud and quite annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CPBlue Happy with decision
We were not looking to replace our old unit but it died. Our installer recommended we install a Lennox and said this unit was the best. We have not been disappointed. We had it installed Labor Day weekend 2012. It is so very quiet it is almost spooky. The unit is large so make sure you have the space. But it's size makes it efficient. We are happy with this unit. We also replaced our furnace at the same time so we have a Lennox home. Going well so far. Thanks, Dave.
