Advancements in technology enable manufacturers to create furnaces that are both energy-efficient and safe. Lennox, one of the leading names in HVAC technology designed the EL195E, equipped with a Power Saver™ motor. This is a constant torque furnace that can improve your comfort while lowering your energy costs at the same time.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is a leading heating company in Plymouth, MN that offers a full line of Lennox heating systems.

Constant torque motors are high-efficiency motors used by manufacturers to build furnaces that offer great performance without the hefty price tag.

Here are some of the advantages of having a constant torque furnace:

Energy Savings

Today, more and more homeowners are interested in lowering their energy costs. Furnaces with constant torque motors can increase the overall efficiency of the heating system. Depending on your lifestyle, the size of your home, and your locality, a constant torque motor-powered furnace can help you save up to several hundred dollars in energy savings per year, compared to a standard PSC motor.

Federal Tax Credits

Since constant torque motors contribute to energy efficiency, furnaces that use constant torque motor technology may qualify for up to $1,500 in tax credits under the current federal program. If eligible, the constant torque motor will be defined as an advanced air circulating fan, which means that the motor itself uses about 2 percent of total annual energy used by the furnace, as determined by the Department of Energy test procedures.

Cleaner Indoor Air

Furnaces with constant torque motors circulate air slowly and for longer periods of time, which gives the system more time to capture more contaminants through the filter. This results in an improved indoor air quality and lower risks of respiratory illnesses.

Features of the Lennox EL195E

This furnace is ENERGY STAR® qualified. Heating systems that have the ENERGY STAR® label meet or even exceed the U.S. federal standards for energy efficiency. In order for a product to receive the ENERGY STAR label, it should meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). When you choose an ENERGY STAR certified furnace and take steps to optimize its performance, you can improve your home’s comfort while saving energy in the process. This results in lower energy costs as it also protects the climate by helping prevent harmful carbon pollution and reducing other greenhouse gases.

If you live in a chilly climate, it is recommended to invest in the highest-efficiency system, as it gives you greater savings.

The EL195E’s 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 EL195E has an efficiency rating of up to 95 percent AFUE that can save you hundreds of dollars in heating costs per year.

When paired with a Lennox® heat pump, the EL195E 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.

Because it’s made with special sound-absorbing materials, the EL195E operates at very low sound levels. And because it has a Power Saver constant torque motor, you won’t ever hear loud startup sounds.

Every component of the EL296E 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.

With product registration, the EL195E may be eligible for a 10-year Limited Extended Warranty. Lennox also offers a 5-year Limited Warranty on covered parts and Limited Lifetime Warranty on the Heat Exchanger.
