Rated 3 out of 5 by RBRZMR Electrical issues!
I purchased this model along with the air handler 6 years ago. I just recently had a problem with an electrical wire touching a copper freon pipe located inside the the outdoor unit. If you purchase this unit be aware of this issue! I recommend re-taping the power wires inside the unit with rubberized insulation. The cost to our family was 12 lbs of freon, 2 inches of braze, and 4 hours of labor. In today's economy I hope that Lennox follows up on this issue for future purchases. This could have been prevented during the manufacturing process! I have contacted Lennox concerning this isssue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by es99cobra Nice looking high quality unit
So far, this unit has performed flawlessly. It looks great, and is quiet to boot. I like the upright feature and the clam shell design for ease of cleaning the coils. No complaints so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by Milo Much better than unit it replaced.
The Lennox heat pump is much quieter than the unit (from another manufacturer) that it replaced. It also seems put together much better (old unit had a very flimsy cabinet)
When in heat mode the Lennox has a much quieter defrost cycle than the old unit, which sounded like it was exploding when it went into defrost.
Here in Arizona we have over 100 100deg days each year and always several 110deg plus days. The Lennox is up to the task.

Rated 5 out of 5 by davidandreanna Another quality Lennox product!
The XP13 is an excellent value in the Elite Series. We have 2 heat pumps that heat and cool our house, and they do a fantastic job of keeping every room just the right temperature. They're economical, too. We couldnt' be more satisfied.

Nothing but problems since my lennox XP13 was installed. Only works for about a year before it has to be serviced. I continue to have problems with the defrost control board. Have had it replace twice in four years and I believe its failing is caused by other parts malfunctioning. The certified Lennox guy has advised me to "just replace everything" because he doesnt know what is wrong. I have the Capacitor and contactor replaced, then the board goes out, replace the board and it works for a year... then the board continues to flash an error code and wont start the compressor. If its not one thing its another. I dont know if all Lennox products are like this but in four years I have used the "Emergency Heat" more than the heat pump.

The heat pump works very well and I am so comfortable. It has only been installed for a week, so I don't have much history and, of course, haven't had a power bill. I am hoping my power bill is significantly lower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mcrobert The unit performs well but is very noisy
We have had this unit for three years and have had no mechanical problems. It is easy toprogram and is relatively inexpensive to operate. My only concern thus far is the noise it creates.If this could be corrected I would be most pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by deb60 Nothing but nightmares with a Lennox
I have had a Lennox heat pump for 12 years and have had the outside unit replaced 4 times now and have spent well into the thousands, more than the unit was in the first place. I do not recommend a Lennox product ever, they do not last and VERY unrealiable
as they say in their booklet, ONE THING LESS TO WORRY ABOUT! DO NOT BUY ONE, NOT TRUE! they only work for about a year at a time..then problems!
I think maybe Lennox should pay for my new one since I have bought so many bad ones from their company!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Paul Works fair on cooling
The system maintains temp in the house, but is very drafty in the winter. 80 to 85 deg air temp in winter is not comfortable. Had to a v/s control to the air handler in order to make system tolerable. Would change to gas if available.
