DALLAS, TX. (July 15, 2008) - Designed with Precise Comfort ™ technology for the ultimate in quiet, consistent heating, the Dave Lennox Signature Collection G71P Variable-Capacity Gas Furnace from Lennox is a Silver award winner in the 2008 Dealer Design Award Program. The G71P furnace was selected as a standout in the HVAC High-Efficiency Residential Equipment category.
Sponsored by The Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration News magazine, the annual awards program recognizes product design excellence in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration industries. After judging products from 99 different brands, an independent panel of 63 contractors selected the Lennox furnace for the award.
The G71P furnace features Precise Comfort™ technology to automatically adjust heat and airflow capacity in increments as small as 1% for superior temperature control. The variable-speed blower motor ramps up and down slowly to provide quiet, consistent airflow for enhanced temperature and humidity control, while the furnace varies output from 40% to 100% to go beyond typical low and high two-stage operation. When the furnace is combined with an electric heat pump, the dual-fuel capability optimizes energy use to minimize heating costs. Patented noise-reducing cabinet construction reduces sound to an industry-leading low to create the quietest furnace you can buy*.
“Every time the G71P cycles, it reviews past run time and output demands to make sure the next heating cycle matches precise comfort requirements, so a home stays comfortable whether the outside temperature is mild, freezing or anywhere in between,” says Ken Ely, Heating Product Manager for Lennox. “We believe this award is a direct reflection of our team's commitment to identifying a market need and then designing and developing a superior product to meet that need.” For more information about the G71P furnace, please contact Lennox at 1-800-9-LENNOX or visit www.lennox.com.
