April 29, 2011: Lennox Earns Energy Star Award for Excellence in Energy Efficient Product Design

DALLAS - Lennox Industries has earned the 2011 Energy Star® Award for Excellence in Energy Efficient Product Design from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Lennox introduced a number of major new products in 2010, including the SunSource® Home Energy System, the first integrated system to utilize solar power for home heating, cooling, and other household needs. All of Lennox’s most efficient air conditioners and heat pumps are now manufactured “solar ready.”

Lennox noted that solar power can have a huge impact on home heating and cooling costs. Installing a single solar panel with the Lennox XC21 air conditioner as part of a SunSource Home Energy System in the Dallas area can save a typical homeowner 56 percent in annual heating and cooling costs, said the company. More solar panels can be installed over time, and the more panels installed, the bigger the savings.

Other major energy-efficient products introduced by Lennox in 2010 included:

• A compact 33-inch gas furnace platform, featuring models up to 98.2 percent AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency), that uses fewer parts and raw materials while allowing 50 percent more furnaces to be shipped at once, improving overall environmental sustainability.

• The icomfort Touch® programmable thermostat, which uses an intuitive touchscreen interface to make precise comfort adjustments quick and easy - making it easier for homeowners to customize their indoor environments and provide more energy-efficient comfort.

“We are extremely pleased and honored to receive this prestigious award from the EPA,” said Doug Young, president and COO, Lennox International Residential Heating & Cooling. “Building on a company heritage of energy efficiency dating back to 1895, we continue to make leadership in innovative, energy efficient product design a key focus for our business.”
