Experience the Superior Comfort of the Elite® Series Lennox Air Conditioners.

When we say something is elite we’re saying it’s a cut above, that it has reached a certain level of recognition 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 provide some of the most impressive features and capabilities in the industry, they are also supremely 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 working, we’re talking about the hundreds of dollars you can save every month, as well as the diminished environmental impact that these systems have. Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing in Bakersfield prides itself on providing the most efficient heating and cooling options for the community, but we also want to help you personally take household comfort to another level.

We realize that air conditioner replacement is a big deal, so take a few moments 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 call at 661-437-3499 and we’ll answer any questions you may have.
