Why You Should Consider Buying the Lennox ML296V Gas Furnace

Posted: 2021-03-02

The best HVAC systems are, obviously, more expensive than their standard counterparts. And when it comes to furnaces, the price depends primarily on how well the unit performs in terms of energy efficiency. The higher the efficiency level, the higher the price. But don’t let the higher upfront cost put you off because the benefits of a high-efficiency unit easily outweigh the price point.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your top-notch heating company in Woodbury MN. In partnership with Lennox Industries, we offer a wide array of high-efficiency furnaces that deliver unparalleled performance at reasonable prices.

The Energy-Star Factor

Most high-efficiency furnaces possess the ENERGY STAR® seal of approval (including the Lennox ML296V). ENERGY STAR products are the same or better than standard products, only they use less energy. To earn the ENERGY STAR label, furnaces must adhere to strict energy efficiency criteria set by the US Environmental Protection Agency or the US Department of Energy. Since they consume less energy, these appliances save you money on your electricity bill and help protect the environment by causing fewer harmful emissions from power plants; and you get the features and quality you expect.

ENERGY STAR-certified furnaces have higher Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings and higher efficiency blower motors, making them more efficient than regular models.

When your home is properly insulated and air sealed, you can get better heating performance from your ENERGY STAR-qualified furnace.

Features of the Lennox ML296V Gas Furnace

At every turn, the ML296V gas furnace is designed to be the most energy-efficient furnace in its class. A variable-speed fan keeps temperature swings to a bare minimum. Two-stage heating saves gas by adjusting the flame size based on demand.

Every component of the ML296V 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.

The ML296V’s two levels of heat allow it to find a smart balance between energy usage and comfortable warmth.

This furnace has an efficiency rating of up to 96% AFUE, which reduces hundreds of dollars on your annual energy costs. This furnace uses 2/3 less energy than competitive single-speed units.

The variable-speed motor on the ML296V can enhance the efficiency of your outdoor cooling unit during summer, helping you save even more on energy bills!

This furnace is ENERGY STAR® qualified, which means the unit meets and exceeds US federal guidelines for energy efficiency. ENERGY STAR-certified furnaces have higher Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings and higher efficiency blower motors, making them more efficient than regular models.

In order for a product to receive the ENERGY STAR label, it should meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). When you choose an ENERGY STAR-certified furnace and take steps to optimize its performance, you can improve your home’s comfort while saving energy in the process. This results in lower energy costs as it also protects the climate by helping prevent harmful carbon pollution and reducing other greenhouse gases. When your home is properly insulated and air sealed, you can get better heating performance from your ENERGY STAR-qualified furnace.

The ML296V can be paired with a Lennox heat pump in an energy-saving dual-fuel system for added efficiency.

The ML296V can automatically adjust its airflow speed, allowing it to gently circulate even heat throughout your home. Variable-speed airflow also prevents blasts of air when the system starts. 

The ML296V has a fully insulated steel cabinet with patented noise-reducing construction that further minimizes heat loss. Also, the sealed blower compartment permits only 1 percent leakage, which maximizes comfort.

Its robust blower assembly maximizes air movement for perfect temperatures.

The ML296V’s silicon nitride SureLight ignitor increases reliability and prolongs the unit’s life. It ensures reliable operation for years.

Its Duralok Plus heat exchanger is made of patented ArmorTuf steel captures that waste heat and a stainless steel secondary heat exchanger that allows the unit to achieve industry-leading efficiency levels.

This furnace comes with a 20-Year Limited Warranty on the heat exchanger as well as a 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. This product may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.
