Lennox 13ACXN024 $2600 installed, good deal?
Or is it better to get a goodman GSX130241 $2350 taxes included?

Both are low grade builder's units.

Well said insertname 2020. The Lennox Merit series furnace and AC units are not the same as a Lennox made in the USA. The Merit Series is sold to any contractor over the counter and are builder grade units which competes with other budget builder grade brands such as Goodman, Luxair, Payne, Day & Night, Air Flow, Concord & Ducane.insertname2020 wrote: ↑ Both are low grade builder's units.
The lennox is made in mexico, goodman in texas I believe.
Goodman in their tech guides now just says "energy efficient compressor", not type, so who knows what they're using. Compressor is the heart of the unit and the best is a scroll type.
If your budget allows, better to get a XC13 lennox over those units. Better quality, easier to take apart to clean, lower noise level. Could be $500+ more.
Installer is the most important though.

It's against the law to fill a a/c system without finding the leak and it must be fixed before recharging unless it is to prevent a danger to health. (https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-cl ... ctors.html)jdmfishingonly wrote: ↑ Second owner of 2 story detached 1800 sf home.
We still have the builder installed 2-Ton York Model AY024MA321A from 2006. No refrigerant in May 2020 ... had it recharged for $180 ... AC guy said it should last a year or two, Also asked about a new one ... quoted 2-ton Carrier for $3000 installed.
Rarely use the AC .. so not a big deal.
Ran the AC Unit for an hour two days ago just to check to see if it was good ... well ... it was good! So no need for a new AC Unit yet.

If it was only $180 and can last a couple more years .. Why not?insertname2020 wrote: ↑ It's against the law to fill a a/c system without finding the leak and it must be fixed before recharging unless it is to prevent a danger to health. (https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-cl ... ctors.html)
Find a law abiding contractor when you want to replace.
You can report the crime if there's a sufficient paper trail/evidence - bet there isn't for obvious reasons and it was a cash job.

Leak was probably not there for 14 years - its normally a sealed system, a leak is a defect, and its probably not cooling at full capacity now.

As the above poster mentioned. You are clearly.kn the wrong and it doesn't matter if you use it once a year or 365 days, a leak is a leak and it is slowly going out.
