While the temperatures are already beginning to get milder, it’s still pretty cold outside. For this reason, you may still need to run your furnace to stay comfortable indoors. And if your old furnace is having a hard time delivering your desired comfort levels, it may be wise to start looking for a brand-new unit.

We can help you choose the right furnace in terms of type, size, and features to ensure you are getting ultimate comfort at the best possible prices.

If you’re unsure your existing furnace is bidding goodbye, consider these signs.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Your furnace isn’t only responsible for controlling the temperature in your home; it also helps clean your indoor air. An old furnace is no longer as efficient in terms of filtering airborne contaminants such as dirt, dust, debris, and pet dander. These pollutants can cause allergic reactions and trigger respiratory ailments.

Repeated Sickness in the Family

One of the major problems associated with old furnaces is carbon monoxide leak. Exposure to this colorless, toxic gas can result in symptoms like headaches, nausea, flu, vomiting, mental confusion, and loss of consciousness. If you suspect your furnace is leaking this dangerous gas, call an HVAC professional immediately.

High Operational Costs

An old furnace works with aging parts, which have become less efficient due to wear and tear. Overall, the heating system tends to work harder in an attempt to reach your desired temperature. Unfortunately, in doing so, it consumes more energy and thus costs more to operate.

If you are experiencing these signs of an aging furnace, it’s best to look into upgrading to a new unit, which will be far more efficient.

Features of the Merit® Series ML180V Gas Furnace

Keep temperature swings to a minimum. Your home will stay perfectly comfortable with steady temperatures, improved humidity control, and smart energy use, thanks to a variable-speed motor.

Save money every month. With an energy-efficient design, the ML180V keeps your home comfortable and saves on monthly utility bills. Plus, when paired with a programmable thermostat, you could save up to 35% on utility costs.

The ML 180V is simply 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.

Every component of the ML180V 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.

From its heavy-gauge steel cabinet and aluminized steel heat exchanger to its sealed blower compartment, the ML180V is built to deliver reliable comfort, year after year.

An AFUE of 80% means 80 cents of every dollar spent on gas goes directly toward heating your home. That can mean the potential savings of hundreds of dollars per year when compared to an older furnace.

When the ML180V is paired with a Lennox® heat pump, it creates a system that can automatically alternate between electricity and gas to keep you warm. So you’re always using the most energy-efficient way to keep comfortable.

The ML180V has a Duralok Plus heat exchanger that is constructed from patented ArmorTuf steel that captures waste heat, and a stainless steel secondary heat exchanger that allows the unit to achieve industry-leading efficiency levels. This solid component exceeds industry requirements and extends the furnace’s life.

Its hot surface igniter controls furnace operation to ensure reliable, efficient performance.

With product registration, the ML180V may be eligible for a 10-year Limited Extended Warranty. Lennox also offers a 5-year Limited Warranty on covered parts and a 20-Year Warranty on the Heat Exchanger.
