DALLAS - For the fourth time in five years, 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® Manufacturing Partner of the Year for its outstanding contributions to developing, manufacturing, and promoting energy-efficient products; consumer education; and industry outreach efforts. Lennox is the only HVAC manufacturer ever to be chosen for the award.

"Partners like Lennox have had an outstanding year in helping consumers help themselves," said Bill Wehrum, acting assistant administrator for EPA's Office of Air and Radiation. "In addition to leading the way in manufacturing products that earn the Energy Star, Lennox also works to educate consumers about the importance of energy efficiency. These efforts are a win for consumers and for the environment."

Lennox was selected for the Partner of the Year honor from over 9,000 organizations currently participating in the Energy Star program.

"We are tremendously pleased to receive this highly select honor from the EPA for the fourth time, which is unprecedented in our industry," said Doug Young, president and COO, LII Residential Heating & Cooling. "Our continuing commitment to the Energy Star program mirrors our focus on manufacturing the most energy-efficient products, educating consumers, and developing business partnerships focused on energy efficiency issues."

All cooling products in the premium Dave Lennox Signature™ Collection line of home comfort equipment are now Energy Star qualified. Lennox also recently unveiled a new consumer and business Website focused exclusively on energy issues, www.itpaystolivesmart.com. The company also hosted an Energy Summit in 2006 with 45 leading national and international energy experts, fostering partnerships among utilities and energy-efficient alliances.
