With years of rigorous design and testing under the most extreme conditions, our Quantum coil technology—featuring a proprietary aluminum alloy exclusive to Lennox—is here to deliver superior performance and peace of mind.
Types of Corrosion
The major types of corrosion react differently in their respective environments.
Fresh paint, new carpets, new furniture, and even common household cleaners generate what are called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). While you may not notice these VOCs, your HVAC system will. VOCs can create organic acids when combined with moisture producing a harmful environment for some coils, which could eventually lead to corrosion.
In coastal areas where salt air is common, galvanic corrosion of aluminum fins on outdoor coils can gradually compromise cooling capacity.
Advantages of Lennox Quantum Coil Technology
Our Quantum Coil technology is designed to deliver on improved comfort and energy savings. Because they're resistant to corrosion, you'll experience easier maintenance, better performance, and greater peace of mind for years to come.
Our specialized aluminum alloy doesn't just reduce the chance of corrosion due to moisture, oxidation, or salt, it's also a key ingredient in our commitment to sustainability. Because aluminum coils are significantly lighter than traditional copper coils, some Quantum coil units can weigh up to 50 pounds less than the copper versions they replace. That translates into significant fuel savings and fewer emissions during shipping.
