    anyone seen the new lennox "select" units? The 3 ton is over 4 feet tall! It's huge!!!!!!! not to mention the compressor looks next to impossible to remove.

    It comes with a step ladder for service use???

    Funky looking thing, only saw a picture in the News. I'd hate to see a price tag!

    Sounds like the Trane XL19i.

    20SEER? Yeah, right! It's probably more like an 18SEER but they're advertising it as 20. Heck, Trane does it; their 19i is really only rated at 17.6.

    Trane XL19i 3 ton: 50 inches tall and 388 pounds. A true ball buster. LOL

    I thought you could get 18.5 for the Trane Ed, depending on the air handler.

    Take a very close look at the design temperture for 20 SEER alo fof smoke and mirrors.

    A 13 - 14 SEER by most manufactures stomp all over the Lennox 20 SEER rating in 100 plus tempertures... It should be illegal fo rthem to manipulate the numbers like they do...

    Specified conditions place that equipment leaning more towards 13 SEER ratings so why spend the extra $$$$$ just for a large cabinet?

    The 20 SEER has a huge initial purchace price and will require 10 times the length of return to offset the price difference of a 13 - 14 SEER

    Payback in two (2) years 13 SEER or 10+ years for a 20 SEER jsut to have a huge AC that really isn't showing you any initial savings.... Unless of course your weather in the real world are Design Tempertures!

    Nothing to get excited about Key Word ( Specified Conditions)
    (Picture linked from forum member Sarge, Thanks Sarge)

    Here's my arguement:

    • Thirteen Seer Initial Extra Cost $500
    • 20 Seer Equipment $2500 Extra Cost
    • Thirteen Seer Saves $250 Annually (Califoria)
    • 20 Seer Saves About The Same ( Design Conditions)


    Do the math the 20 SEER payback is 10+ years for what?
