    Got two Lennox units. No issues. One in the Keys, one in St Pete.

    They are indeed quiet if that is an issue.

    I have a Goodman under warranty and the blower motor was replaced , so I'm guessing they put another junk motor to replace it

    Good info...
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    GE sold off the small motor division to foreign manufactures, outsourced the jobs and quality went down the tubes.

    no surprise that the CEO of GE was Obama's job's advisor

    I replaced a 19 year old Lennox with another Lennox last year. My brother in law (in the a/c business and did the R&R) told me to stay away from trane / american standard because of crappy air handlers.

    Carrier!!! Or Payne-the cheaper version of Carrier. Copper on Copper, with aluminum fin.... If you are on the beach or anywhere the salt is.... upgrade to the zinc coated "Coastal"... yes the X13 blower sucks, but beware and make sure your service company stocks the replacement in their shop for fast warranteed repair. I have 150+ split units on my property, American Standard (Trane), Goodman, Rheem.... They all suck, unless you service them regularly... not just filters and drain line clearing. It needs to be washed down as the fins accumulate crap.The windings on the pump are eventually going to wear and pull more amps than rated. Just don't pay $10,000 like most of the fools do today unless they are replacing ALL your ductwork too. And beware of the warranties real value if it's really worth purchasing.
