RICHARDSON, Texas — Lennox Industries, a provider of innovative home comfort solutions, launched the Lennox SL280NV Ultra Low NOx gas furnace, part of the Dave Lennox Signature Collection of high-efficiency HVAC products, which allows homeowners to feel good about creating better air inside and outside their home. This product is the first in Lennox’ new line of eco-efficient furnaces, which are designed to meet the low-emission regulations in certain California markets that now require lower emissions to reduce air pollution. The product earned the “Best of IBS” Award for Best Green Building Product at the 2018 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builder’s Show.

The Lennox SL280NV Ultra Low NOx furnace produces exceptionally low NOx emissions. With a heating efficiency rating of 80 percent AFUE, and as part of a Lennox iComfort thermostat-enabled system, the SL280NV delivers exceptional comfort all winter long and helps homeowners save energy. Lennox’s innovative technology allows for a higher heat temperature that burns more of the NOx emissions before releasing them into the air. Additionally, a variable-speed blower motor and two-stage gas valve allows the furnace to adjust airflow and heating output to help homeowners maintain their ideal temperature throughout their home, quietly and efficiently.

“The Lennox SL280NV Ultra Low NOx gas furnace is the latest example of Lennox’s commitment to innovation and its ability to deliver premium efficiency and comfort to homeowners,” said John Whinery, vice president, product management for Lennox. “This first product in Lennox’s new line of eco-efficient furnaces offers the best of both worlds for homeowners — quiet and efficient operation with a minimum impact on the environment. It gives contractors peace of mind through its ease of installation and maintenance while providing the only product they can offer to homeowners to meet new stringent California emissions standards.”

The SL280NV furnace offers industry-leading features, such as:

•           Ultra Smart Control: When combined with the Lennox iComfortS30 ultra-smart thermostat, the Lennox SL280NV adjusts the heating for energy savings based on a homeowner’s routine, helping them save money;

•           Comfort: The Lennox SL280NV variable-speed blower can help condensing units control humidity levels and also offers continuous filtration for cleaner, healthier air for homeowners; and

•           Environmentally Friendly: The Lennox SL280NV operates at two different levels of heat output, which maintains a consistent temperature in the home using as little fuel as possible. This helps homeowners stay comfortable and reduces their utility costs, while lower emissions help with reducing air pollution.
