Are you tired of your old air conditioner that keeps on leaking refrigerant? Your unit is perhaps telling you it needs to officially retire.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your leading HVAC company in Coon Rapids MN. We offer a wide array of energy-efficient, feature-packed air conditioners from Lennox.


There are several reasons for an air conditioner to fail to provide your cooling demands, one of which is a low refrigerant charge. The refrigerant is an essential substance in the AC system that transfers and removes heat from your home. When your AC is low in coolant, it won’t be able to remove the heat effectively. Just as how poor airflow affects your air conditioner’s energy efficiency, low refrigerant can also cause your electricity bills to rise since the unit needs to work harder to satisfy your cooling needs. 

Quite often, an air conditioner being low on refrigerant is caused by a leak, which can take place within the system coils and line sets that move the refrigerant. Since the refrigerant is virtually invisible, professional service is needed to precisely locate the leak, seal it off, and recharge the refrigerant as needed. This job also requires a particular set of tools and devices to ensure your AC has the right refrigerant charge.

However, if you’re dealing with a relatively old air conditioner, it probably has aging parts that may cost a fortune to replace. In such a case, looking for a new unit might be the way to go.

Features of the Lennox Merit® Series ML14XC1 Air Conditioner

With a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of 14.00 to 16.00, the Lennox ML14XC1 air conditioner can save you hundreds of dollars in cooling costs per year, compared to older air conditioners.

This air conditioner comes with a 10-Year Limited Warranty on the compressor and 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The ML14XC1 may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

The ML14XC1 is an ENERGY STAR-qualified air conditioner. This trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency makes it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance, features, and comfort. The ML14XC1 reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. It meets or exceeds EPA guidelines for energy efficiency.

Every component of the ML14XC1 has proven itself through extensive testing in our research labs. So you can take comfort knowing that your conditioner will deliver reliable performance throughout the cooling season.

The cooling comfort and peace of mind you get from the ML14XC1 is enhanced when the unit is paired with indoor air quality (IAQ) products, such as the Healthy® Climate whole-home dehumidifier. By helping control mold, mildew, and other contaminants, an IAQ accessory can make your indoor air better. Unlike some portable units, these accessories improve the air without producing ozone, a known lung irritant.

Its scroll compressor with a sound-dampening system provides low sound levels and durability, even in extreme weather conditions.
