The Exceptional Comfort of the Elite® Series.

When we say something is elite we’re saying it’s on another level, that it has reached a certain level of achievement compared to others in its field. Because of this, we crafted the Lennox Elite® Series of air conditioners. Not only do our Elite Series systems consist of some of the most impressive features and capabilities in the industry, they are also tremendously efficient compared to conventional heating and cooling products.

Of course when there is talk about efficiency levels, we’re not only talking about how your air conditioner is running, we’re talking about the hundreds of dollars you can save every month, as well as the decreased environmental impact that these systems feature. American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning in Sylmar prides itself on having the most efficient heating and cooling options for the community, but we also want to help you personally take home comfort to a new level.

We realize that air conditioner replacement is a big deal, so take a few minutes to explore the Elite® Series systems below and see what fits your needs and your budget. And if you happen to have any questions, give us a shout at 818-370-7266 and we’ll answer any questions you may have.
