Reasons Why You Should Upgrade to the SLP99V Variable-Capacity Gas Furnace

Posted: 2022-11-15

Replacing your old furnace can be quite taxing. You may be torn between repairing your old piece of equipment or getting a new unit all together. It may seem like getting a new unit with a higher efficiency rating as an added expense, but you’re getting a lot of good things should you choose to invest in one.

A good reason why you would want to put your money on a high-efficiency furnace is the amount of dollars you will be saving in the long run. If you install a furnace with a 99% AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency), you are technically getting 99% of the money you spend in usable heat. If your furnace stays with you for a decade or more, that number can translate to thousands of dollars in total savings.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your friendly heating company in Forest Lake MN. As a Lennox Premier Dealer, we are given the privilege of offering the full line of award-winning Lennox furnaces, including the top-of-the-line unit, the SLP99V.

Features of the SLP99V Variable-Capacity Gas Furnace

Not only is the SLP99V gas furnace part of the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection, but it’s also part of the Ultimate Comfort System™. It combines the best of everything Lennox has to offer to create an unprecedented whole-home comfort system that seamlessly and intelligently works together to stay finely tuned to your home and deliver consistently clean, perfect air.

Impressive Performance

Precise Comfort® technology allows the furnace to keep the temperature held exactly where you want it. Heat is even throughout your home, with no cold spots. If it sounds perfect, it’s because it is.

Energy Efficiency

AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating is the measure by which a system’s ability to convert gas into heat is evaluated. It indicates the percentage of the fuel consumed that is actually used for generating heat. In layman’s terms, the higher the AFUE rating, the greater the savings.

More efficient than anything the industry has ever seen, this premier furnace boasts an efficiency rating of up to 99%—that means it essentially converts every last bit of energy it uses into heating the home.

This furnace has also been designated as one of the Most Efficient ENERGY STAR® certified products in 2022. Products that are recognized as the Most Efficient of ENERGY STAR in 2021 prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting rigorous energy efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

For greater energy efficiency, this modulating furnace comes with a primary and secondary heat exchanger. The secondary heat exchanger searches for whatever heat energy is left from the combustion gases after they pass through the main heat exchanger. As a result, it turns more of its fuel into usable energy for your home.

Silent Operation

The SLP99V is easily the quietest and most efficient furnace you can buy today.

Even with all of its impressive power, this furnace is the quietest you can buy and has been engineered to run at variable speed to drastically minimize the sound of air kicking on or off inside the home.

Its SilentComfort technology combines advanced engineering with sound-absorbing components to deliver the best in quiet performance. Compared to other competitive models, the SLP99V is way quieter, promoting a good night’s sleep.

SilentComfort™ is achieved by using variable-speed technology. In other words, it offers both a high and low speed. Since the low-speed setting is enough to meet household-heating demands approximately 80 percent of the time, the furnace is much quieter than a conventional single-stage furnace.

The SLP99V packs a fully insulated cabinet with patented noise-reducing construction that further minimizes operating sound to an industry-leading low level.

Smart Thermostat Compatibility

With the help of the iComfort® S30 ultra-smart thermostat, the SLP99V gas furnace unlocks a world of connectivity. It stays finely tuned to your home by using sensors to react, diagnose, and troubleshoot all while remaining in constant contact with your dealer to ensure proactive responses. Geofencing technology ensures your air turns on and off as you come and go. And the system even responds to the outdoor environment to adjust operation to account for factors like pollen and outdoor air quality.
