The Exceptional Comfort of the Elite® Series.

When we chose to include these air conditioners as a part of the Elite® Series, there were certain skills that had to be met in order to be included. More and more, efficiency and durability are pieces that carry more weight as many companies seek the cheapest way to manufacture goods. We, on the other hand, have taken the time to craft household comfort systems that outdo their expectations.

Lennox has a long history of creating heating and cooling products that are notorious for their durability and reliability and we’re honored to carry on that history at Payless Heating & Air Inc in Valencia. We also know that when air conditioner replacement becomes necessary there can be a bunch of questions and unknowns, which is why our specialists are here to find the ideal system for your home and your budget.

After you take a few seconds to learn more about the air conditioners in our Elite® Series, give us a call at 661-775-2944 or set up an appointment with one of our experts through our online scheduler and we can chat with you more about our devotion to whole-home comfort.
