Lennox XC21 Air Conditioner Highlights

Summer is only a few weeks away and many homeowners are now preparing for the inevitable — the sweltering heat and the need to run that air conditioner round the clock.

However, if you have an older unit, you may not get the cooling needed to keep everyone in your home comfortable. That’s because older air conditioners tend to lose their efficiency and cost more to operate. As your AC unit is nearing the end of its life, it tends to work harder in an attempt to provide the same level of comfort. This is particularly the case for air conditioners that do not receive regular professional maintenance. Also, older cooling systems are likely to fail due to a heavier workload. The problem is that the older the air conditioner, the harder it is to find replacement parts.

To avoid a steady increase in your cooling bills, you may want to consider getting a new air conditioner instead of having your old one perpetually repaired. This investment may involve a larger upfront cost, but you will be reimbursed when you notice a significant reduction in your monthly utility bills.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is a leading HVAC company in Coon Rapids MN that offers innovative air conditioners designed by Lennox, one of the best in the industry.

Signs You Need a New Air Conditioner

In addition to age, there are other factors to consider when deciding on getting a new cooling system.


Older air conditioners usually require R-22 refrigerant, which is known to have negative effects to the environment. If your existing air conditioner still uses this refrigerant, you may need to look for a new one. That’s because the price of R-22 has significantly increased in recent years. Also, the production of this refrigerant will be stopped by 2020.


As stated above, older air conditioners need to work harder to meet your desired comfort levels. Not only does this cause a steady rise in your monthly utility bills, certain components are also highly likely to fail and would require replacement or repair.

A new air conditioner is more energy efficient than your existing unit. It costs less to operate, not to mention its minimal impact on the environment. In addition, many states offer tax credits to homeowners who purchase high-efficiency air HVAC systems. Therefore, a new unit makes more sense since it can save you money on monthly bills and tax incentives.
