Why You Should Buy the Lennox Merit Series ML180 Gas Furnace

Posted: 2021-04-13

It may not be as cold as it was weeks ago, but it still gets pretty chilly at night, which behooves the need to turn your furnace on. But what if your relatively old furnace releases cold air instead of warm? This is the last thing you’d want amid a cold night.

In partnership with Lennox Industries, we offer an array of energy-efficient heating systems that deliver optimum performance, keeping you snug without excessive energy costs.

Here are possible reasons why your furnace blows cold air.

Duct Issues

Your furnace’s job is to produce heated air, which is then circulated throughout your home through the duct network. However, if there is any leak, a crack, or any form of damage anywhere within the ductwork, it will blow cold air instead of warm.

These tiny openings will draw cold air that blends with heated air, making your furnace unable to provide the comfort you expect. Serious damages to the ducts can even result in losing heated air completely. And if you have an old system, this can also put your family at risk as it’s possible that the system also leaks carbon monoxide. This gas is colorless, odorless, and can cause adverse effects on your health.

Electrical Complications

Even if you have a gas-fired unit, your heating system still needs electricity to turn on. Simple issues such as a tripped breaker inside your electrical panel can cause problems, such as causing your furnace to blow cold air. A tripped circuit breaker can cause your furnace to not turn on at all. It can also lead to a pilot that fails to light up.

A Dirty Flame Sensor

If you are unable to schedule a professional maintenance check for your furnace, your furnace is likely having a dirty flame sensor. It is a thin, metallic rod located in front of the flame, which tells you if there is a flame. The flame sensor is a safety device that enables the furnace to only run when there is a flame. If this part is filthy, the furnace will run, which can cause a gas buildup. It can also cause your unit to release cold air.

If you’re dealing with an old furnace and want to upgrade to a new one and get rid of these problems, consider the ML180 from Lennox.

Features of the Lennox Merit® Series ML180 Gas Furnace

Every component of the ML180 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 ML180 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 ML180 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 ML180 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.
