Why You Should Consider Buying the Lennox EL180NE Ultra-Low Emissions Gas Furnace

Posted: 2021-02-23

Buying a furnace is more than just choosing the latest or the most feature-packed system. Several factors need to be taken into consideration to ensure you’re buying the right unit for your home.

Your preferred heating company in Shoreview MN should be able to give you tips on what to look for when choosing a brand-new heating furnace.

Here are some of the things you need to look into when deciding what heating system to install in your home.

Proper Sizing

Buying the most advanced or the fanciest furnace doesn’t necessarily mean you're making the right choice. When it comes to furnaces, bigger isn’t always better, and smaller isn’t always wise.

When a furnace is oversized, it heats the home too quickly but uses excessive amounts of energy. Such a furnace is inclined to short cycling, which means the unit shuts itself off before the thermostat even makes the right temperature readings. Too much short cycling is dangerous for the furnace as it causes the unit to fail prematurely.

On the other hand, an undersized furnace lacks the power to properly heat your home, which causes it to run longer than it should. This is an attempt to reach your desired temperature. Not only does a furnace that’s too small burn more fuel, but it also tends to overheat. Like an oversized furnace, an undersized unit is highly likely to retire prematurely. This means you would have to replace it much sooner than if you installed a properly sized system.


Your heating system is one of the main energy-consuming pieces of equipment in your home. For this reason, you should look for a furnace that makes the most of out its fuel. Therefore, It is essential to specify the energy-efficiency of a furnace to give you an idea of how much fuel it needs to heat your home.

A furnace’s annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating is the measure by which a system’s ability to convert gas into heat is estimated. It shows the percentage of the fuel consumed that is used for producing heat. In other words, the higher the AFUE rating, the greater the savings.


Some homeowners tend to overlook the importance of a warranty. However, it is an essential factor in the purchase. The warranty on your furnace will differ depending on the manufacturer, model, and dealer. High-efficiency furnaces usually have longer warranties compared to their low-efficiency counterparts. With a high-efficiency unit, it is especially important to have a long-term warranty on the heat exchanger because this part is quite expensive to replace or repair.
