Upgrade your heat, lower your utility bills

The Power Saver™ constant-torque motor design uses less energy in both heating and cooling modes, helping you save on utility bills. Flexible airflow based on a home’s ductwork makes this furnace 33% more efficient than older furnaces, while also delivering high gas efficiency with the 96% AFUE.

Save money every month

With an energy rating of 96% AFUE, you pay for perfectly heated air, not wasted energy.

A smarter system

When this furnace is installed with a compatible Lennox heat pump, it creates a heating system that can switch back and forth between gas and electricity automatically, based on whichever is most cost-efficient for the weather conditions at the time.
