Winter is a dangerous season, as it is associated with winter storms, wind chills, icy conditions, and cold-related health risks such as hypothermia and frostbite. But these threats aren’t only found in open environments; exposure to cold temperatures even when inside your home can be damaging to your health — like when you’re dealing with a faulty furnace. Living in a condition that is too cold can cause health issues particularly for people who have weakened immune systems such as newborns, infants, and the elderly.

According to the World Health Organization, the ideal temperature during winter should be no lower than 64 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have children and elderly people in your home, you are advised to set the thermostat at around 70 degrees to keep them comfortably warm.

Having a properly functioning furnace during this season is essential to keep every member of your family comfortable and safe. But this may be a problem if your existing furnace is not performing as it should. If you have an old, inefficient furnace, it may be time to consider looking for a replacement.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your foremost heating company in Champlin MN. We can help you find the right furnace for your home. We have the entire Lennox repertoire of energy-efficient furnaces, which are known for their quiet operation, low fuel consumption, and value for money.

Features of the Lennox EL296E High-Efficiency, Two-Stage Gas Furnace

This product is approved by ENERGY STAR, which means it has a higher annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating and higher efficiency blower motors, making it more energy-efficient than regular models.

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.

Conventional furnaces are either off or on. But the EL296E can output heat at two different intensities, allowing it to fine-tune your comfort and your energy use in perfect balance.

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 EL296E has an efficiency rating of 96 percent AFUE that can save you hundreds of dollars in heating costs per year.

The EL296E also has the capacity to make your home feel better during the summer months. By operating at its lower speed, air spends more time in contact with the outside coil, the cooling engine of your air-conditioning unit. This helps reduce moisture levels inside your home to enhance your comfort.

When paired with a Lennox® heat pump, the EL296E 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.

Its Two-Stage Gas Valve operates at a lower heating output for efficiency, switching to a higher output only when needed.

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 EL296E 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.
