The Exceptional Comfort of the Elite® Series.

When we included these air conditioners as a part of the Elite® Series, there were specific abilities that had to be met in order to be included. Progressively more, efficiency and reliability are characteristics that carry more weight as many companies search for the cheapest way to create things. We, on the other hand, have taken the time to create household comfort systems that beat their expectations.

Lennox has a long history of designing heating and cooling products that are known for their durability and dependability and we’re proud to carry on that legacy at Knoechel Heating Company in Zelienople. We also realize that when air conditioner replacement becomes necessary there can be a ton of questions and unknowns, which is why our specialists are here to find the ideal match for your home and your budget.

After you take a few moments to learn more about the air conditioners in our Elite® Series, give us a call at 724-452-6280 or schedule an appointment with one of our pros through our online scheduler and we can speak with you more about our devotion to whole-home comfort.
