Comments: Dealer is great. Working to find a solution to recurring problem
I will never buy any Lennox product again.
As what seems to be the usual case, a formerly well reputed manufacturer has taken the cheap route and is selling junk.
Do your homework and talk to others. Had I done enough checking to begin with, I know Lennox would have been crossed off my list from the get-go.
