When it comes to choosing the best air conditioner for your home, there area some important questions that you need to ask before you make the purchase. Is the unit energy efficient? Is it noisy? We will be addressing these key points, and many more, to help you decide on an A/C unit that is best for your home. The two air conditioners that we will be covering are the Lennox XC25 and the Daikin DX20VC.
What do these systems offer?
The Lennox XC25 Air Conditioner is built with cutting edge technology that makes it highly efficient and focused on your complete comfort. The XC25 comes with Precise Comfort® technology that allows the system to keep the temperature of your home consistent throughout the day. By continuously making small adjustments, the system keeps you comfortable and helps you save energy in the process by only using the proper amount of energy needed. Depending on what equipment is included in your system, the XC25 can reach up to a 26 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating. Variable-capacity cooling allows the compressor in the XC25 to adjust its output level anywhere between 35% and 100%, in 1% increments. To make this unit even better, it runs with nearly half the amount of noise of a standard air conditioner, thanks to Lennox's SilentComfort™ technology.
The Daikin DX20VC Air Conditioner is a high performing A/C unit that gives you comfort, efficiency, and energy savings, all in one package. With Daikin Inside Technology, the DX20VC delivers consistent temperatures and endless comfort, all with the Daikin manufactured variable speed compressor. The compressor can reach a 24.5 SEER rating when properly matched and expertly installed for maximum efficiency. The DX20VC comes with a high-density compressor sound blanket, which keeps the unit operating quietly for years. Daikin Inside Intelligence provides advanced diagnostic information that keeps your system running with optimal cooling while only using the minimum amount of power needed. The DX20VC was built with comfort in mind, and it takes care of the job very efficiently.

The Importance of Quality Installation
You wouldn’t choose a sub-par doctor over an experienced and highly competent doctor, right? The same logic applies to your HVAC system. Your HVAC system is only as good as the installation. No matter how amazing your system may be, it will not produce the maximum efficiency or comfort that you expect if it is installed incorrectly. A poorly performed installation may lead to system inefficiencies, breakdowns, and other major issues. You get what you pay for, and it is worth every penny to get excellent installation service that will bring out the full capacity of your system.
When should you consider purchasing one of these units?
This is a big question to answer, because different people have unique needs when it comes to their HVAC system. Some of the more common reasons include noise issues, dehumidification issues, and cooling problems with their current HVAC system. Another important point to consider is how long you plan on living in your home, because this may be a factor in calculating the overall value that you will get out of purchasing the Lennox XC25 or Daikin DX20VC. If you plan on living in your home for 5 years or longer, then these two units may work perfectly for you.
