Do you need a furnace that works so silently you don’t have to worry about turning up the TV while enjoying your favorite show? Consider upgrading to a unit that comes with a fully insulated cabinet. Such a furnace dampens vibrations and helps seal in noise to keep it from being transmitted through the vents and in the area surrounding the furnace itself.
Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your reliable heating company in St. Louis Park MN. We partnered with Lennox Industries to provide you with energy-efficient choices to heat your home with minimal operational sound.
Features of the Lennox EL196E Gas Furnace
The EL196E is one of the models in Lennox’s Elite Series, promising optimum performance and ultimate savings. Enjoy warmth as well as peace of mind. The EL196E, like all Lennox products, undergoes rigorous testing in our lab using proven technology from our industry-leading platform, ensuring the utmost reliability.
This furnace is ENERGY STAR® qualified, which means the unit meets and exceeds US federal guidelines for energy efficiency.
Products that have the ENERGY STAR® labels offer reduced greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. They also make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance, features, and comfort.
Its Power Saver™ motor operates at constant torque to help maintain consistent airflow. Power Saver technology not only provides energy boost capabilities improving the overall system efficiency, similar to a variable speed furnace but also delivers higher SEER ratings in cooling mode. In continuous fan mode, this technology helps keep energy waste to a minimum.
Compared to older, low-efficiency models, the EL196E has an efficiency rating of 96 percent AFUE which can save you hundreds of dollars in heating costs per year.
The EL196E furnace is compatible with the iComfort® E30 smart thermostat. You’ll get easier access, control, and comfort. And because the E30 works seamlessly with Amazon Alexa and Apple HomeKit*, you get the added convenience of perfect comfort just a voice command away.
When paired with a Lennox® heat pump, the EL196E creates a system that can automatically alternate between electricity and gas fuel to keep you warm. So you’re always using the most energy-efficient way to keep comfortable.
Every component of the EL196E has proven itself through extensive testing in our research labs. So you can take comfort knowing the furnace will deliver reliable performance, season after season.
The secret to the EL196E’s silent running is no secret: a fully-insulated cabinet and a Power Saver constant torque motor.
The Power Saver motor in the EL196E provides more consistent airflow for improved comfort while operating more efficiently than a standard motor.
Its Dual-fuel capability can be combined with an electric heat pump to enhance comfort and fuel efficiency by alternating between electric and gas heat, optimizing energy use, and minimizing heating costs.
As long as the temperature outside is above 35°F or so, a heat pump can draw heat from the outside air for less than it costs to fire up the furnace. The furnace kicks in for only the coldest months. Heat pumps save energy because moving heat is easier than making it. Interestingly, even when it feels cold outside, there is still a decent amount of heat waiting to be pumped. Under ideal conditions, a heat pump can move 300 percent more energy than it consumes.
Its Sealed blower compartment minimizes air loss and maximizes efficiency and comfort. Less than 1% leakage at 1.0″ ESP
Its Duralok Plus heat exchanger is made of patented ArmorTuf steel to ensure high reliability and efficiency.
Its SureLight® igniter’s silicone nitride construction ensures long product life and reliable operation.
With product registration, the EL196E may be eligible for a 10-year Limited Extended Warranty. Lennox also offers a 5-year Limited Warranty on covered parts and a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the Heat Exchanger.
