Technology has made great changes to our lives and the ways we cool our homes. Air conditioners have changed a lot over the years. Some of us grew up with water coolers and one window air conditioner for the whole house. And lots of fans!

Bratcher Heating & Air Conditioning is proud to be one of the few Dave Lennox Premier Dealers in Central Illinois. We are able to offer the entire line of Lennox air conditioning equipment. Included in the Dave Lennox Signature line of air conditioners are the models SL18CX1, XC21, and XC25. Some of the features of these fantastic models are discussed below.

The Quietest Single-Stage Air Conditioner You Can Buy

The SL18XC1 is a single-stage air conditioner that is one of the quietest and energy efficient models on the market today. A single-stage air conditioner is the most common cooling method for homes. The compressor on the single stage air conditioner operates on one speed only. It is either on or off. It has a decibel rating of 65, which is lower than the 78 decibels of most vacuum cleaners.

Even through the hottest of summers, the SL18XC1 can save you hundreds of dollars a year in energy bills, because it has a SEER rating of up to 18.50. And the higher the SEER rating, the greater energy efficiency is available.  If you are in need of a new central air conditioner, the SL18XC1 is a great choice!

One of the Best Two-Stage Air Conditioners on the Market

The XC21 is the quietest and most efficient two-stage central air conditioner you can buy. With a decibel rating as low as 69, it is quieter than most standard single-stage air conditioners. A two-stage air conditioner has a compressor with two levels of operation. The low level is for milder days and the high level is for hotter summer days. The low setting is able to meet most household-cooling demands. The two-stage unit runs for longer periods and produces more even temperatures throughout a home. Longer cooling cycles mean quieter, more efficient operation and humidity control. A two-stage air conditioner can remove twice as much moisture from the air as a single-stage unit. And the XC21 is compatible with Humiditrol®, a whole-home dehumidifier that works to reduce humidity levels in your home. It has a SEER rating of up to 21, which can lower your energy bills by hundreds of dollars and is much more efficient than single-stage units. The XC21 is the two-stage air conditioner of choice!

The Quietest & Most Energy-Efficient Air Conditioner You Can Buy

Model XC25 is the most precise and efficient variable-capacity air conditioner you can have in your home.  A variable-speed motor runs at a wide range of speeds to precisely control cooled air throughout the home. It ramps up or down in small increments depending on how much cooling is needed to get the job done. This results in better airflow control. The variable-speed motor uses less electricity than standard motors. It allows you to set the temperature and keep it at that setting all the time. The temperature in the house stays at the setting you choose, letting you customize the comfort in different areas of the home. The XC25 has a sound rating as low as 59 decibels, making it the quietest central air conditioner on the market. It also has a SEER rating of up to 26 to provide tremendous energy efficiency.

The XC25 is the finest air conditioner that Lennox makes and one of the main components of the Ultimate Comfort System™. This system adapts to your needs and area. The settings, “Dry”, “Moderate” and “Humid” allow the air conditioner to adjust the airspeed to either increase or decrease dehumidification as needed.

The XC25 is compatible with the entire line of the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection equipment, providing you with the ultimate in comfort. This includes the iHarmony® zoning system, which lets you redirect the airflow in your home.

Exceptional Features for All Three Air Conditioners

The SL18XC1, XC21 and XC25 are all ENERGY STAR® qualified and each comes with a 10-year limited warranty on covered components, including the compressor. They also have iComfort®enabled technology that is designed to work with an iComfort® programmable thermostat which allows the air conditioner to exchange information and make adjustments to optimize performance and efficiency.

It is easy to combine the three models discussed above with solar roof modules in a SunSource® Home Energy System. This combination can drastically reduce your utility bills by up to one half. The solar modules generateelectricity for your air conditioner by using free energy from the sun to keep your home cool.

All three models have low decibel ratings due to the SilentComfort™ technology to reduce operating noises, making them the quietest air conditioners you can buy. They are all rated lower than the average household vacuum cleaner.
