If you’re completely new to furnaces, don’t fear. Fenix’s comfort specialists are more than happy to break down some of the features, and what they mean. The following paragraphs will give you a brief rundown, but if you have any questions, or would like to know more, feel free to give us a call at 316-945-4842.
Let’s start with efficiency. A furnace’s AFUE rating, or it’s annual fuel utilization efficiency, tells how much of—and how well—the fuel is utilized. This typically falls anywhere between 80% to 98%. In other words, this if the AFUE rating is 80%, then 80% of the fuel will be used to heat your home. The other 20% will go up in smoke. Highly efficient systems are Energy Star® qualified. No matter which Lennox Furnace you choose, you can rest assured that it will be a highly efficient unit.
Then there are two and one-stage, as well as modulating furnaces. One-stage furnaces have two modes: one and off. When they’re on, they’re heating at full capacity until they reach your thermostat’s designated temperature, then they shut off. A two-stage furnace has a second function. In addition to running at full capacity, these heaters can run at half, further increasing efficiency.
A modulating furnace can run anywhere between 40-100% capacity, making for highly efficient heating. These furnaces are how you achieve 98% or higher AFUE ratings.
Choosing a Lennox Furnace: The Three Series
Lennox breaks their equipment down into three categories, or series: Merit, Elite, and Signature.
Merit – These are the entry-level furnaces. They’re all single-stage and typically have an efficiency rating between 80% and 90%. These make for great heating solutions for any homeowner on a budget. These smart designs are thoroughly tested to ensure exceeded expecations.
Elite – These mid-range furnaces take comfort to the next level. They come in single and two-stage varieties, saving you even more money on your heating bill through outstanding energy efficiency.
