What Is the Best Furnace?
It’s that time of year again! Fall isn’t just for raking leaves and carving pumpkins (although we certainly recommend both!). It’s the best time to install a new heating system—before the temperatures plunge and you really need it.
Sometimes furnace repair isn’t enough and a full replacement is needed. Are you in the market for a new heating system and wondering what the best one is? There are so many options available—so it’s a valid question! The answer may not be as straightforward as you think. Many factors are at play, such as the space (residential or commercial) and your priorities (energy efficiency, cost, etc.).
Best Furnaces for Homes
What is the best furnace for your home? We highly recommend:
Dave Lennox Signature® Collection SLP98V Gas Furnace
This variable-capacity gas furnace is gold winner of the 2016 Dealer Design Awards, which reflect just how fantastic this product is. According to The NEWS editor-in-chief, Kyle Gargaro, these awards are a “true test” of the quality of the products since the competition’s judges are HVACR contractors.
The Lennox SLP98V furnace:
- Has an incredible efficiency rating of up to 98.2% AFUE and is ENERGY STAR® qualified
- Features a variable-speed blower motor and modulating heating capabilities to help provide the exact amount of heating a home requires
- Is conveniently iComfort® enabled
- Has a zoning-compatible design (works with Lennox’ Harmony III™ zoning system to deliver the right amount of comfort for up to four zones)
In short, the functionality and versatility of this furnace helped it earn the gold status.
Dave Lennox Elite® Series EL296V Gas Furnace
Another Lennox furnace, the Elite® Series EL296V is similar to the Signature® Collection SLP98V. This heating system is quiet and energy-efficient (96 AFUE), and features variable-speed technology to deliver greater humidity control and consistent airflow for improved comfort and indoor air quality.
Those two furnaces are the most energy-efficient units we install—but you have other options. Other great Lennox gas furnaces include:
- Merit® Series ML195
- Merit® Series ML193
- Merit® Series ML180
- Signature® Collection SL280V
If you value cost the most, the high-quality, economical Merit® Series ML180 furnace may be the right heating system for you. If you want the most energy-efficient, versatile unit, we recommend the Signature® Collection SLP98V. It all depends on your needs, priorities, and space!
