Why You Should Upgrade to the SLP99V Variable-Capacity Gas Furnace

Posted: 2021-11-30

Winter is only a few weeks away, making this time a perfect opportunity to upgrade to a better-performing furnace. If you’re tired of dealing with an old, inefficient heating system, now is the best time to work with your preferred heating company in North Oaks MN to find the right unit for your home.

In partnership with Lennox Industries, Four Seasons Air Specialists offers an array of energy-efficient furnaces, one of which has the highest AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating: the SLP99V Variable-Capacity gas furnace. AFUE is the measure of a gas furnace’s ability to convert fuel to usable energy. For example, a unit with an efficiency rating of 99 percent AFUE turns 99 percent of fuel to heat, and only 1 percent escapes the chimney.

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

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 layman’s terms, 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 2021. Products that are recognized as the Most Efficient of ENERGY STAR in 2021 prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting rigorous energy efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

For greater energy efficiency, this modulating furnace comes with a primary and secondary heat exchanger. The secondary heat exchanger searches for whatever heat energy is left from the combustion gases after they pass through the main heat exchanger. As a result, it turns more of its fuel into usable energy for your home.

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 is 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.

The SLP99V packs a fully insulated cabinet with patented noise-reducing construction that further minimizes operating sound to an industry-leading low level.

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.
