Lennox Air Conditioner Prices
Lennox central ac units are offered in the Merit, the Elite and the Dave Lennox Signature Collection series. They range from 14 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) down in the Merit series, to up to 26 SEER in the Signature collection.
The average cost to install a Lennox AC unit is between $2,500 to $4,200. Your total AC unit installations costs will largely depend on the size needed for your home. For a 1,600 square foot home you would most likely need a 2.5 ton air conditioner. That size unit would be able to efficiently cool and heat your home.

Lennox Packaged HVAC Units
Packaged units are a Lennox HVAC product that puts all the main cooling components into one compact package. These AC units are small and allow you to effectively cool your home without taking up much space to do it.
Lennox Warranty Info
Lennox offers a highly comprehensive warranty on any of the top-end Dave Lennox Signature Collection products. Those products get component and compressor coverage for 10 years and heat exchanger coverage for 20 years. When using the Elite series coverage drops to 5 years for components, 10 years for the compressor and remains at 20 years for a heat exchanger. Finally, the Merit series products get 5 years of coverage for both components and compressors and 20 years is provided for the heat exchanger.
Variable Heating and Cooling
There aren’t many cooling and heating technologies that can both cool and heat a space at the same time. While that normally isn’t something a business or a homeowner would want to do, in a very large space there are times when it would be beneficial to be able to cool some rooms while heating the rest.
Advanced Lennox systems come with variable speed blowers and adjustable burner controls to provide different levels of heating and cooling as needed. This lets residential equipment from Lennox operate in very strict heat ranges. While equipment from other companies might vary by as much as 3 degrees above or below the thermostat setting, Lennox equipment generally stays within a single degree of the set temperature thanks to the highly flexible technology.
It’s always smart to get price quotes from at least four pre screened and licensed HVAC contractors before starting your project in order to get the best price.
Let Modernize help you do that in a few easy steps:
Lennox VRF Technology
Lennox is one of the few manufacturers that offers Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Technology. This is a new way to heat large spaces that should be very appealing to business owners with big buildings to take heat. The system pipes heat through refrigerant around the office from one central unit. The refrigerant travels through narrow pipes that take up much less space than traditional ductwork does.
Energy Efficient Units
VRF makes it possible to heat some areas of the building more than others so smaller rooms can receive less heat than the larger ones and sections of the building that aren’t occupied can be kept at a lower temperature and save the business money. It’s simple to keep expenses down when using this technology because only the desired level of heat is delivered to each section of a building.
Lennox Night Mode
Many of Lennox’s heating and cooling units for commercial use, come with an Energy-Smart Night Mode. The units will reduce their speeds at night to boost efficiency levels and save the company money over time. This is an excellent option for companies that don’t have workers there at night.
