Why You Should Consider Upgrading to the SLP99V Variable-Capacity Gas Furnace

Posted: 2020-12-01

We’re living in a world with depleting natural resources. Therefore, we must find ways to make the most of every measure of energy we’re using. As arguably the top energy-consuming piece of equipment in your home, your furnace affects not only your family’s comfort but also the environment.

Thankfully, Lennox has just released its most energy-efficient heating system yet: the SLP99V Variable-Capacity Gas Furnace. This product is available at Four Seasons Air Specialists, your leading heating company in White Bear Lake MN.

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

Your furnace is one of the pieces of equipment in your home that consumes the most energy. It is important to specify the energy-efficiency of a furnace to give you an idea of how much fuel it needs to conveniently heat your home.

Improved energy efficiency is one of the main reasons why homeowners buy a new furnace. While investing in a high-efficiency furnace does involve a substantial upfront cost, but it’s important to know that it also offers an excellent return on your investment.

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 other words, 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 2020. Products that are recognized as the Most Efficient of ENERGY STAR in 2020 prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting rigorous energy efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Silent Operation

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 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.

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.

iComfort-enabled technology allows the furnace to process information and make adjustments as needed to optimize performance and efficiency. iComfort Wi-Fi thermostats have the ability to monitor your energy usage and send you a detailed report that tells you how much energy you have been using in a given month. This data will allow you to foresee how much your utility costs would be, and tell you to make adjustments if you want to save on energy.
