Why You Should Upgrade to the Lennox ML196E Gas Furnace

Posted: 2022-02-15

If you have been dealing with an old, inefficient furnace, you probably know how inconvenient it is. Your comfort is compromised—some rooms are warmer than others. It’s also noisy, which means having concerns about whether or not the unit will some working at some point. And don’t forget its inability to clean your indoor air. When you have kids, the elderly, or family members with preexisting respiratory conditions (like asthma), dealing with a furnace with subpar performance could mean putting them at risk of inhaling polluted indoor air.

With that in mind, Four Seasons Specialists offers you an array of energy-efficient, quiet, and air-filtering furnaces. As your trusted heating company in White Bear Lake MN, it is our goal to help you establish a home that is comfortable, safe, and environment-friendly. Here’s one furnace you might want to take a look at.

Features of the Lennox ML196E Gas Furnace

The ML196E is one of the models in Lennox’s Merit Series, promising optimum performance and ultimate savings. Enjoy warmth as well as peace of mind. The ML196E, like all Lennox products, undergoes rigorous testing in our lab using proven technology from our industry-leading platform, ensuring utmost reliability.

Every component of the ML196E 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.

This furnace is ENERGY STAR® qualified, which means the unit meets and exceeds US federal guidelines for energy efficiency. Products that have the ENERGY STAR® labels offer reduced greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. They also make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance, features, and comfort.

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.

Compared to a traditional furnace, the EL196E helps get significant dollar savings on your energy costs, thanks to its efficiency rating of 96 percent AFUE. This is the ratio of the annual heat output of a heating system in contrast to its total annual fossil fuel consumption. A furnace with 96 percent AFUE is considered a high-efficiency heating system, which means that the furnace converts 96 percent of its fuel to heat and only 4 percent escapes up the chimney or elsewhere.

Its Power Saver™ motor operates at constant torque to help maintain consistent airflow. Power Saver technology not only provides energy boost capabilities improving the overall system efficiency, similar to a variable speed furnace but also delivers higher SEER ratings in cooling mode. In continuous fan mode, this technology helps keep energy waste to a minimum.

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.

Its Sealed blower compartment minimizes air loss and maximizes efficiency and comfort. Less than 1% leakage at 1.0" ESP

Its Duralok Plus heat exchanger is made of patented ArmorTuf steel to ensure high reliability and efficiency.

Its SureLight® igniter’s silicone nitride construction ensures long product life and reliable operation.

With product registration, the ML196E 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 Limited Warranty on the Heat Exchanger.
