It's a combination of equipment, duct work / air distribution, care of installation,

Take care of it and it will (should) perform well for about 20 years.

Actually, it is one of two units, located in East Texas, and in a 3300 Sq Ft. home. The other unit is the same except it is a 3.5 ton unit. I'm assuming that neither of these have a variable speed motor?

Lennox units with variable speed blowers will have a V in the model #.
