DALLAS - For the second consecutive year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have selected Lennox Industries Inc., a subsidiary of Lennox International Inc., as an Energy Star® Manufacturer of the Year for the company's contribution to developing, manufacturing, and promoting energy-efficient products.

"Partners like Lennox exemplify the success of Energy Star," stated Kathleen Hogan, director of EPA's Climate Protection Partnerships Division. "By offering the latest and greatest products that are also energy efficient, the consumer wins and so does the environment. Lennox' products show you really can have it all - features and energy savings."

"Given our longstanding leadership role in not only promoting the message of energy efficiency, but developing industry-leading products that exemplify that message, we're honored to once again be selected for this special award by the EPA," said Bob Schjerven, chief executive officer, Lennox International Inc.

Lennox made a number of energy-efficient product introductions in 2003, with nearly 90 percent of the new products in the Dave Lennox Signatureâ„¢ Collection Energy Star-qualified. The company spread the energy efficiency message through national consumer education and via its Web site at www.lennox.com. In the commercial market, Lennox joined forces with DOE to educate retail business owners on the importance of energy efficiency, including a lifecycle cost analysis that demonstrates how Lennox commercial rooftop units can save 20 percent in overall energy efficiency, resulting in significantly lower utility bills.

"Through our product development, targeted promotions, dealer support, and educational marketing of our residential and commercial product lines, Lennox continuously reinforced the important message of energy efficiency through the Energy Star program in 2003," Schjerven said. "We're proud of our achievements in this important area, and we fully intend to continue our leadership position."
