Why You Should Upgrade to the Lennox Merit Series ML180V Gas Furnace

Posted: 2022-03-01

Trying to keep up with an outdated furnace can mean more harm than good. Not only does it cost more to operate, but it also runs with worn-out parts, which are due for failure much sooner than later. So, to avoid the stress and discomfort of dealing with a malfunctioning furnace, it’s best to consider upgrading your unit.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your friendly heating company in Grant MN. We are a premier dealer of Lennox furnaces, which are considered some of the quietest on the market today. Because of their efficiency, they also offer the most bang for your buck.

Features of the Lennox Merit® Series ML180V Gas Furnace

Save money every month. With an energy-efficient design, the ML180V keeps your home comfortable and saves on monthly utility bills. Plus, when paired with a programmable thermostat, you could save up to 35% on utility costs.

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.

Keep temperature swings to a minimum. Your home will stay perfectly comfortable with steady temperatures, improved humidity control, and smart energy use, thanks to a variable-speed motor.

A variable-speed furnace does not tend to overwork because it can control its operation to match your heating needs. Since your fan isn’t set at maximum all the time, it uses less power, which results in lower energy bills.

Its dual-fuel capability can be merged with an electric heat pump to create a dual-fuel system that maximizes comfort and fuel efficiency by seamlessly alternating between electric and gas heat, optimizing energy use and minimizing heating costs.

A variable-speed furnace can maintain indoor air temperature with an accuracy that traditional single-speed furnaces can’t match. A conventional furnace pushes a predefined amount of hot air into a room until a certain temperature is met. Then, it shuts off until the temperature decreases again while a variable-speed furnace is able to effectively circulate enough heated air into a space to keep a specific temperature.

Its variable-speed motor provides a quiet and consistent flow of air for an ideal balance of temperature and humidity throughout your home, giving your home enhanced comfort.

The ML180V’s ultra-low continuous fan speed provides a quiet, constant flow of air and optimizes indoor air quality devices. Operating your fan at a slower speed when the top speed isn’t necessary means a much quiet overall performance. You wouldn’t hear a constant loud noise that accompanies the blower going on when the temperature has dropped. One innovative benefit of variable-speed operation is that it continuously circulates air. This is also beneficial for you in terms of indoor air quality because the air passes through your furnace filter more often, removing more airborne contaminants.

The ML180V is simply a smarter system. When this furnace is installed with a compatible Lennox heat pump, it creates a heating system that can switch back and forth between gas and electricity automatically, based on whichever is most cost-efficient for the weather conditions at the time.

Every component of the ML180V 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 ML180V is built to deliver reliable comfort, year after year.

When the ML180V 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 ML180V 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. Its SureLight igniter increases its lifetime and improves reliability. The control board effectively controls its operation, guaranteeing better reliability and efficiency.

With product registration, the ML180V may be eligible for a 10-year Limited Extended Warranty. Lennox also offers a 5-year Limited Warranty on covered parts and a 20-Year Warranty on the Heat Exchanger.
