Customer Question
We have a two...

We have a two year old Lennox HVAC system with a two stage air conditioner. The A/C unit is very noisy. Compared to a Trane, our 12 year old Carrier at our other house etc. the compressor is many times louder. Can this be changed and if not, will another brand work with our furnace. Acts a 3-4 zone model.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

What does that answer have to do with compressor noise outside; our neighbor is complaining it is so loud.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so, but why are you avoiding the noise question?

Contractor's Assistant: I hope not.

So, what is the answer?
