Lennox EL296V: A High Efficiency, Gas-Fired Furnace

Posted: 2018-01-03

Your furnace plays a significant part in keeping your home comfortably warm during winter. However, as it gets old, it gradually loses its efficiency. That’s because old furnaces use more energy and tend to break frequently, costing you a lot in utility bills as well as repairs. 

If you are bothered by a heating system that is in constant need of repairs, you might want to consider investing in a new one. There are many furnace models and types available on the market today. To ensure great comfort and efficiency, look for a high-efficiency unit that can greatly lower your heating bills.  

Here at Sour Seasons Air Specialists, we thoughtfully think about your home’s comfort. We strive to make your home as cozy as possible without the excessive energy costs.  For this reason, we partnered with Lennox to provide you with some of the best high-efficiency furnaces available on the market today.
