DALLAS, TX — July 13, 2009 — Transforming a simple air handler into something much more, Lennox Industries has won prestigious Silver honors in the 2009 Dealer Design Awards sponsored by The Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. The quietest and most efficient air handler you can buy5, the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection CBX40UHV variable-speed air handler helps contractors improve customer satisfaction by maximizing comfort, reducing noise, providing healthier indoor air and conserving energy, all while effectively circulating heated and cooled air throughout any home.
An independent panel of 41 contractors rated entries from 84 different brands, and gave the CBX40UHV air handler high marks for its ability to virtually eliminate the drafty feeling caused by the “cold blow” common during heating mode with some air handlers, as well as for its low-speed operation that helps keep sound to a minimum, and factory-installed MERV 16 media filter for healthy air that reduces space requirements for installation. Humidity control maximizes comfort, and the air handler easily integrates with other Lennox products for complete, continuous comfort.
“Our Dealer Design Awards recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into products like this,” says The ACHR News publisher John Conrad. “Our annual Awards issue allows us to provide contractors with an opportunity to learn about innovative installation and service solutions for their customers.” The CBX40UHV air handler and other winning entries were featured in the July 13, 2009 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed to more than 33,000 HVAC contractors, wholesalers and other industry professionals.
