Just received a notice from Com Ed that I am using 70% more elctricity than my neighbors. Not sure what data they use but I'm considering the following:
I am in the Chicago area. My Lennox 10 Seer is 26 years old and needs 2-3 lbs of freon every summer. Thinking of replacing with a 14 seer Lennox 14ACX. Price quoted is $3100 and includes evap coil. Installer said they would also relocate away from dryer vent into shaded area at no extra charge. (under a pine tree - will this be a problem?) Pairing this with a 6 year old Lennox gas furnace G61MPV 36C.
Would appreciate comments/advice. Thanks!
