The Exceptional Comfort of the Elite® Series.

When we decided to include these air conditioners as a part of the Elite® Series, there were specific skills that had to be met in order to be included. Increasingly, efficiency and reliability are pieces that carry more weight as many industries look for the cheapest way to create goods. We, on the other hand, have taken the time to create household comfort systems that beat their expectations.

Lennox has an impressive history of crafting heating and cooling products that are recognized for their durability and efficiency and we’re proud to carry on that legacy at 1st Choice Service Group Inc in Asheville. We also realize 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 air conditioner 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 828-551-2913 or set up an appointment with one of our experts through our online scheduler and we can talk with you more about our devotion to whole-home comfort.
