Just received a quote for a high end Lennox system. A 70k BTU SLP98V furnace, 3 ton XC21 A/C unit, and the Icomfort controller. They did do a full measurement and J loss calculation. Total was $11,400. Politely asked the salesman to leave. Never heard of a $6,500 3 ton A/C unit. Lol

I'm in Southeast Michigan. Load calculation came out to 64K and change. Sq. footage is just under 2,000 it's a ranch with some high ceilings. Original furnace is 90K A/c is 3 ton.

RE: Lennox system

The Lennonx XC21 in the 3 ton size can achieve a 20 SEER rating. This is why it is so expensive. In my opinion this is overkill for the summers in Michigan. I am suprised the salesman would quote this condenser.

Did the saleman present any other condenser options? A SEER rating of 15-16 would be fine for your location. It is doubtful you will ever see a pay back on a higher SEER rating.

RE: Lennox system

I agree completely not as concerned with the high seer rating but really wanted a 2 stage scroll and the communication capability. Carrier makes a 17 seer with a 2 stage scroll that works with the Infinity system. Even the Carrier Infinity 21 seer was $1,200 cheaper installed. That Lennox must be magic if people are willing to pony up that kind of change for it.
