Exclamation Where to buy Air Conditioner?

Hello,

We move in next week and want to get air conditioning installed immediately!
Because it is the middle of summer we don't have alot of time to have different companies come in and quote us, so I'm hoping that I can take advantage of your experience.

We are looking for a Lennox air conditioner, a reputable company and of course competitive pricing.

Can you please reccommend?

Thanks

I was just on the phone with someone from Reid. They sell Lennox and have been super helpful. I have talked to them a couple of time over the last few months as we prepare to get one. Reid has a sale on right now for a 14 SEER (I forget the model type but it is the good one) for $3800ish and another $500 for the humidifier.

I originally was going to go with Lennox out of Costco. They use Federal Service (or now Service Experts). Problem was that I tried to get in touch a few times and didn't receive a call back - even before the summer season. The last time I tried to get in touch directly with them, I was transfered to some place in the States. Not a fan of that...

$3800 is a little on the steep side so I am looking into a Trane from Ideal. Haven't called them yet though.

I was at costco on the weekend and the sales lead for lennox was there. We picked up his card, his info is Jim Laidlaw 613 285 7200.

he is supposed to come and quote next week, but if his prices are too high we need to look elsewhere.

I will look into Reid. thanks

Also...the sale at Reid lasts until the end of the month. Which was awkward for us as our possession date is Mid-Aug. They may extend it though, they did hint at that.

btw... I just realised that "awkward" is a really funny word to spell....

1Lg there is nothing special about lennox - and a lot depends on which model - be careful with warranty

looks like many on here very happy with sam

Looking for lennox because lennox is offering a free 10 year warranty on their furnace and air conditioners through my builder.

The unit does not need to be purchased through the builder. Just needs to be Lennox, and I'd like the air conditioner to match my furnace.

Thanks,

do you know what model you may get?

here is a link to models>> http://www.lennox.com/products/air-conditioners/

for a/c units, different components have different warranty periods ...also make sure labour is included

carleton refrigeration does excellent work pretty sure they still do lennox

will the builder do the extended warranty if they don't install it?

Think we have Amana units starting at 2900 installed at Direct Energy. If you want something brand comparable to Lennox we also have Trane.

Watch your warranty.. 10 years on what? just parts? If it is its not worth much.

DE offers both parts and labor.(as do others) 5-10 or 15 year parts and labor.

I'd consider a Trane. We need a 4 ton and hoping for at least 14 SEER. ny ideas what that would cost with installation?

Should i just call DE?
Thanks
