Who Makes Lennox Mini Split Units?

The Lennox Corporation is based in Richardson, Texas, and the company has manufacturing and distribution facilities all over North America. The Lennox company was founded in 1895 by Dave Lennox. The Lennox family privately owned the company for 104 years. In 2000, the Lennox company became a publicly traded stock on the NYSE.

Features of Lennox Mini Split Units

Lennox manufactures four mini split heat pump systems. Each provides heating and AC. Like most Lennox products, its mini split systems offer you features for indoor climate control that make Lennox one of the most popular brands in North America.

  • Ductless: Yes, you knew that. This makes Lennox mini split units easy to install in new construction or to add supplemental heating and AC where needed – but no ductwork required. These systems are ideal for existing homes and buildings where it is impossible to install or add ductwork.
  • Pro installation required: These are not DIY units like MrCool makes – or Klimaire, which also manufactures a few single zone DIY ductless systems.
  • System control options: All the systems include a wireless remote control and can be controlled by a wall-mounted thermostat.
  • Certified Energy Star systems: Lennox mini split systems are energy efficient. Two of the four options are Energy Star Qualified. They can reach up to a 24.5 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) and 11.5 HSPF (heating seasonal performance factor).
  • Low-noise systems: Due to the inverter compressor technology, the Lennox mini split systems are quieter than standard split systems – all except for variable capacity ACs and heat pumps, which use the same compressor type. The indoor unit can be as quiet as 24 decibels, which is as loud as a whisper. The outdoor unit produces around 52 decibels, basically as loud as a normal conversation.
  • Single and multi zone options: Two of the Lennox ductless systems serve up to five indoor zones. The details are given in the chart below.
  • Wall mounted indoor units: All the systems give you just one option for the indoor unit – wall mounting. Lennox does not offer ceiling cassette, floor mounted or ducted / concealed options.
  • Indoor unit sizes: The wall mount evaporator units for indoors come in popular sizes including 12000 BTU, 24000 BTU and others.
  • WiFi: Each Lennox mini split system has WiFi capability and allows you to manage the unit via an app on a smartphone or tablet.
  • Warranty coverage: Three of the systems are covered by a 7-year compressor warranty and 5-year parts warranty. These systems also offer a 12-year extended warranty. However, we do not recommend buying an extended warranty because they are expensive, and warranty coverage is often denied for issues that make it difficult for the homeowner to fight the denial. The fourth system, the least expensive, is backed by a comprehensive 5-year parts warranty. Lennox warranties are average at best. Many other brands offer longer standard warranties.

Where to Buy Lennox Mini Split Ductless Systems

Lennox mini split systems can be purchased in several ways.

First, they are available from the popular big box warehouse, Costco. Costco is pushing the Lennox brand and offers consulting and installation for the Lennox brand via their website and in the store. This is something new for Lennox, but it’s the way the mini split market operates compared with how most major brands sell standard split system HVAC equipment – by having a salesperson in your home.
