Lennox Merit® Series 14ACX Air Conditioner

Your air conditioner is easily the most important piece of equipment in your home during the hottest days of summer. When the outside temperature becomes unbearably humid, you will count on your AC to keep you and your family safe and cool.

If you have an older cooling system, it may be losing its ability to effectively cool your home. By trying to keep up with an inefficient system, you could also put your family’s health at risk. One of the biggest health risks of running an old air conditioner is the spread o microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, and pollen. While not every type of fungus is infectious, but some of the dangerous ones can travel in the ducts and therefore circulate throughout your home.

If you have anyone in your home suffering from asthma, bronchitis, or other respiratory problems, your old AC can aggravate their state. Someone with a preexisting condition is more susceptible to catch a lung infection or to have a severe reaction to the toxins and microorganisms being circulated by your old AC system.

If you have allergies, you’re probably aware that pollen, dander, and allergens can actually worsen the situation. Unfortunately, outdated air conditioners are unable to effectively filter out these contaminants before they reach your indoor space.

In addition to health risks, operating an old, inefficient cooling system can be a fire hazard. Most of the time, old AC units have outdated parts and power sources that may include cracked electrical wiring. Since these wires are usually hidden within the equipment, problems with your AC’s electrical parts can go undetected.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is a reliable HVAC company in Columbia Heights MN that can thoroughly check your cooling system and rid you of the risks and dangers of operating an old air conditioner.

Features of the Lennox Merit® Series 14ACX Air Conditioner

With a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of up to 16.00, the Lennox 14ACX air conditioner can save you hundreds of dollars in cooling costs per year, compared to older air conditioners.

The 14ACX 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 14ACX reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. It meets or exceeds EPA guidelines for energy efficiency.

This air conditioner comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty on the compressor and 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The 14ACX may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

Every component of the 14ACX 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 compressor is the part of an air-conditioning unit that pumps refrigerant to deliver the cooling your home needs. The 14ACX is built with a proven, reliable scroll compressor that means years of trouble-free operation.

The 14ACX is compatible with the exclusive Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidification system, for indoor air that feels better – even on sweltering days.

The cool comfort and peace of mind you get from the 14ACX 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 feel better. Unlike some portable units, these accessories improve the air without producing ozone, a known lung irritant.

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

Its precision-balanced direct-drive fan delivers quieter operation and longer equipment life.

With sound levels as low as 76 dB, the 14ACX is much quieter than an old, standard air conditioner.

Its PermaGuard™ Cabinet is a heavy-gauge, galvanized steel construction, louver coil guard, baked-on powder finish and durable zinc-coated steel base provide long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion.

Its Chlorine-free R-410A refrigerant provides exceptional comfort without exacting a costly environmental toll.
