All About the Lennox Merit Series ML180V Gas Furnace

Posted: 2020-03-03

Are you considering replacing your existing furnace but haven’t decided yet? Have you noticed a steady increase in your heating bills and repair costs in the past year or two? Consider the upside of having a new heating system.

First and foremost, a new furnace will be a lot more energy-efficient. It consumes less energy and thus costs less to operate. Improved efficiency allows you to recover some of the initial cost of investment.

If you have rooms that are warmer than others, your old furnace is likely the culprit. On the other hand, a new furnace gives you more consistent heating, giving you greater comfort wherever you are in the home.

If you have frequent sicknesses in the family, your old furnace can be one of the causes. This is because old furnaces tend to have cracks and leaks that let out combustion byproducts such as carbon monoxide. This gas is odorless, colorless, and even fatal when inhaled repeatedly. A new furnace will eliminate this problem.

In a nutshell, upgrading to a new heating system offers several benefits you can’t just ignore. If you need professional advice, reach out to your trusted heating company in North Oaks MN.

Features of the Merit® Series ML180V Gas Furnace

Keep temperature swings to a minimum. Your home will stay perfectly comfortable with steady temperatures, improved humidity control, and smart energy use, thanks to a variable-speed motor.

Save money every month. With an energy-efficient design, the ML180V keeps your home comfortable and saves on monthly utility bills. Plus, when paired with a programmable thermostat, you could save up to 35% in utility costs.

The ML180V is simply a smarter system. When this furnace is installed with a compatible Lennox heat pump, it creates a heating system that can switch back and forth between gas and electricity automatically, based on whichever is most cost-efficient for the weather conditions at the time.

Every component of the ML180V has proven itself through extensive testing in our research labs. So you can take comfort knowing the furnace will deliver reliable performance, season after season.

From its heavy-gauge steel cabinet and aluminized steel heat exchanger to its sealed blower compartment, the ML180V is built to deliver reliable comfort, year after year.

An AFUE of 80% means 80 cents of every dollar spent on gas goes directly toward heating your home. That can mean the potential savings of hundreds of dollars per year when compared to an older furnace.

When the ML180V is paired with a Lennox® heat pump, it creates a system that can automatically alternate between electricity and gas to keep you warm. So you’re always using the most energy-efficient way to keep comfortable.

The ML180V has a Duralok Plus heat exchanger that is constructed from patented ArmorTuf steel that captures waste heat, and a stainless steel secondary heat exchanger that allows the unit to achieve industry-leading efficiency levels. This solid component exceeds industry requirements and extends the furnace’s life.

Its hot surface igniter controls furnace operation to ensure reliable, efficient performance.

With product registration, the ML180 may be eligible for a 10-year Limited Extended Warranty. Lennox also offers a 5-year Limited Warranty on covered parts and 20-Year Warranty on the Heat Exchanger.
