For Immediate Release

DALLAS, TX – Feb. 22, 2005 – For the third

consecutive year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and

the Department of Energy (DOE) have selected Lennox Industries

Inc., a subsidiary of Lennox International Inc. (NYSE: LII), as

an ENERGY STAR® Manufacturing Partner of the Year for Lennox'

outstanding contribution to developing, manufacturing, and

promoting energy-efficient products.



Lennox is the only heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning

manufacturer ever to be chosen for the annual EPA award.



According to the EPA, more than 60% of the American public

recognizes the ENERGY STAR label, making ENERGY STAR the national

symbol of energy efficiency.



"Partners like Lennox exemplify the success and importance of

the ENERGY STAR program," said Kathleen Hogan, director of the

EPA's Climate Protection Partnerships Division. "By offering the

most innovative, energy-efficient products, the consumer wins and

so does the environment. Lennox' products show you really can

have it all—innovative, value-added features and energy

savings."



While thousands of organizations participate in the ENERGY

STAR program, the annual award is presented to only a select

few.



"As Lennox Industries celebrates its 110th anniversary in

2005, we are pleased and proud to once again be honored by the

EPA in this landmark year," said Bob McDonough, president and

chief operating officer, LII Worldwide Heating & Cooling. "It is

recognition not only for our longstanding commitment to designing

and manufacturing the most energy-efficient consumer products,

but for the growing success of the entire ENERGY STAR program. We

are proud to be ENERGY STAR partners."



Lennox reached a new record in 2004 for energy-efficient

product introductions, with 97% of all products in the premium

Dave Lennox Signature™ Collection ENERGY STAR-qualified. Lennox

also hosted a utility partnering conference in June, which was

attended by utilities and energy-efficient alliances. The ENERGY

STAR message continued to be communicated prominently on the

Lennox website, while consumer education through Lennox

advertising doubled its number of impressions to two billion in

2004.



"Through our products, targeted advertising promotions, dealer

training and support, and educational marketing of our

residential and commercial product lines, Lennox continuously

reinforced the important message of energy efficiency through the

ENERGY STAR program in 2004," McDonough said. "We fully intend to

continue our leadership position in this important consumer

program."



ENERGY STAR was introduced by the US Environmental Protection

Agency in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce

air pollution through increased energy efficiency. Today, with

assistance from the Department of Energy, the program offers

businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save

energy, money and help protect the environment for future

generations. More than 7,000 organizations have become ENERGY

STAR partners and are committed to improving the energy

efficiency of products, homes and businesses. For more
