I'm the victim of a Lennox G27M install.
EVERY PART, from the blower motor to the gas valve, has been replaced
at least once.
I've long since lost count of how many control boards have been
Don't buy Lennox, and don't buy from whoever makes Lennox. Don't drive
near a Lennox factory, and if your friends have a lennox system, don't
go to their house (Youll probably get legionaires disease there). If a
Lennox advert comes up on TV, change the channel. In fact, sell the TV,
as after showing a Lennox ad, it's probably going to break down soon.
If someone tries to sell you a lennox system, throw them out of your
house. If your neighbor has a lennox system, build a high partition
wall betwen your house and theirs.
Don't look at any lennox equipment, it will impair your vision
permanently. Don't say 'lennox', you will probably get throat cancer.
There used to be a sketch on SNL where someone would proclaim: "If it's
not scottish - it's crap."
Let me assure you, when it comes to heating systems - If it is
scottish, or if a company called lennox uses a scottish theme, (or was
it Irish), IT MOST DEFINATELY IS CRAP.
Other than that though, Lennox is wonderful. It's especially good for
draining bank accounts. Also, it will afford you the opportunity to see
how well the company that selss the CRAP to you will stand behind their
You WILL get to know the techs from the install company on a first name
basis, assuming that company isn't out of business. This is especially
nice in the middle of winter when you come home to an 2500 sq ft walk
in freezer - it's harder for them to be upset when you know them so
well and you have both long since agreed that the equipment they sold
you is CRAP.
Matt, Nice of you to be so negative

Bryant is made by Carrier. Which may be good with common parts used in both
brands. I would like to hear if both brands are equally reliable. I assume
the Bryant line is cheaper than the Carrier name.
I have quotes on three low efficiency central air conditioners from
Lenox, Trane, and Bryant. On paper, the Bryant 591B looks like the best
deal in price & efficiency and it uses puron which soothes my
environmental conscience, but I wonder if anyone here has this unit and
could comment on the reliability and also on the noise level. It would
be outside my kitchen, so the noise won't bother me too much at night,
but it would be about 15' from a neighbor's bedroom. Any other comments
on the unit would be welcome also.

Avoid Lenox at all cost imho, if you loose a screw lenox distributor
will gladly sell it to you for $1000. And after you paid for it, they
tell you to wait for 2 month for your order.
Lenox = most overpriced parts on this planet.
Bryant/Carrier is fine, properly installed it will do a very good job
for a long long time.
