Rated 5 out of 5 by Well built, attractive furnace! We had this unit installed recently (August 2014) as part of a furnace / AC replacement of a much older system. I'm impressed by the solid construction and it is somewhat quieter than our old furnace. September 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean lines,quiet operation So far so good with the furnace, replaced a 28 year old furnace that sounded like a freight train when firing up. Have not had a need for the heating yet but when tested on install was really quiet and pushed lots of air throughout the house. August 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 80% AFUE works for me While others go for the high-efficiency models (and get possible tax credits), I chose this model and I'm happy I did. I did not want the trouble and expense involved in installation as well as dealing with the condensate removal to the outside. So I have a furnace that is quiet, was easy to install, and will (I hope) save me on my heating bills compared to my old furnace. It's too early to tell at this point. My only complaint - and this applies to all newer furnaces, I understand - is that it requires a separate filter assembly. My old furnace had its own. July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior product through and through This whisper quiet heater is fabulous! You won't even know it is on. Heats my home quickly, quietly and the continuous fan circulation is a great idea, and keeps warm air circulating, making the heater kick in less, and that is a GOOD thing! Lennox is a superior quality product, a purchase you will be glad you made. April 7, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Furnace This furnace is quiet and efficient.The energy savings will help keep our heating cost down March 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good... Only been in operation for three months now, but our EL280 has kept the house comfortable despite unusually cold temps and wild temp swings during that period. We have seen a modest reduction in gas consumption, but this is hard to benchmark since we've had unusual weather. March 12, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Meh. Not any quieter than our 20 year old unit. We went with the EL280, rather than a lower-end model, because of the two-stage system and the promise of both a more quiet unit and more efficiency. Unfortunately, we've noticed no difference between this unit and our old 20-year old generic furnace that we replaced. It seems to run just as loud, just as often and we have the same cold spots in our home. Probably would have saved the money and gone with the basic model had we known. February 26, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very noisy, but works quickly The furnace in our house is located inside a hallway closet, right outside the bedrooms. The EL280 is not a quiet furnace, and not a good choice for this location. When it fired up to full speed, the EL280 would wake everyone in the house up several times a night with the noisy gas burner jets. The EL280 is probably a much better choice for an attic or garage install, where the noise won't be so noticeable. The furnace itself was great, warming up the house very quickly and efficiently. We ended up switching the EL80 out for the SK280V which is noticeably quieter in our particular install location, and a much better choice. I'm posting this review in the hope it helps others with an install situation like ours... if I'd read this review first I would have known the SL280v was the right choice for us. February 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Constant temperature...... We had a furnace that was probably original to our home that was built in 1979. It 'seemed' to heat our home sufficiently. We read about the current models available when we decided it was time to make the purchase of a new furnace that was more efficient. What a difference in our home temperature! Now it is pretty exact to what our new thermostat reads. #And you do need a thermostat that accomodates 2-stage furnaces# The furnace does seem to 'run' more because it is a two-stage system but the constant temps are surely worth it! Hopefully our utilities bill will decrease a little. Overall we are greatly pleased with our new Lennox. February 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet & compact quietest furnace I have ever had even with high powered blower. February 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Features of this furnace We are very pleased with this furnace and the two stage heating -- this feature works well in our home and we notice difference -- we are also very confident that this product will be reliable in the years to come -- we are so pleased to have a Lennox in our home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by quiet and efficient haven't gotten a gas bill since this unit was installed, but it seems to run less and keep the house at the selected temperature...i think the two speed fan helps since it doesn't have to run full out if it's only trying to bring the temperature up a degree or two...definitely MUCH quieter than our old unit which you always new when it came on and heard it running the whole time...can't wait until we have warmer weather so we can see how the new a/c interacts with the air handler February 19, 2013
