Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased so far We have had this unit in our house for approximately one month, and are very pleased so far. The heat within the house is much more uniform and the unit is quieter than our old (20-yr) Pulse furnace was. We have not seen our fist gas bill to see what sort of savings we are seeing (frankly, we don't expect a huge savings, but every bit helps) and of course we will have to see how the long-term reliability of the system holds up. So far, so good. April 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean, quiet, efficient box with simple service/maintenance access We wanted to replace an "80%" unit that was about 18 yrs old with something more efficient to work with a new heat pump (XP17N) and not "break the bank" in the process. This machine ROCKS! extremely quiet, heats quickly and quietly..the two stage variable speed system is a delight. User Maintenance info is excellent and service/maintenance access could not be easier. If we didn't want the AC cooling for a few days in summer I think this would have done the trick on it's own. Lennox has really created a standard with this design. For our house (3000 sqft) this 70 model is nicely adequate . It is SO quiet..when testing I shut off the heat pump and we could hardly believe that this furnace had just raised house temperature 4 degrees in about 15 minutes and been so quiet we weren't even sure if it was on or off without looking. GOOD STUFF! April 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Had this furnace installed a month ago and very happy. Noticed a difference all ready. Doesn't kick on as much as my old furnace. Also very quiet. Did a lot of research and this was the best product (based on cost and features) April 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The furnace is so quiet and compact. The furnace was installed properly and efficently. We are so happy with the way the furnace heats our home. April 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by overall good product Its louder than my old nearly 50 years old furnace that i had before. April 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect choice! Extremely happy with new unit. Immediately noticed even distribution of heat throughout 2 story townhouse, unit is very quiet & can't wait to see the savings on my utility bill! March 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressive system My wife and I are very happy with this furnace. We opted for the air cleaner as well with the MERV 16 and UV lights. To clean the air continually we set the unit up to run continuously. We were kidding each other about setting up chairs just to sit and watch this thing it is so fascinating. It is virtually silent when not needed for heat but when heat is needed it slowly ramps up the air speed to get the job done very smoothly. We have noticed that our multiple level home is warmed more evenly than ever before. This unit to me is the best I have seen and I am confident it will last long into the future. It is quite a piece of engineering. March 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by VFD On of the best features of this product is the variable speed drive capabilities and the better delivery of conditioned air more evenly to the spaces in my home is very impressive. March 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by generally satisfies my needs When heating and cooling, the fan is somewhat noisy. In the fan only cycle, it doesn't seem to move much air. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This furnace works very well We have had the furnace less then a month, but so far everything is performing quite nicely. We are happy. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very quiet & efficient furnace that provides very even heating throughout the house. This furnance is much better than my previous furnace from another major manufacturer. It is efficient, quiet and heats the house much more evenly. It takes up very little space especially with the top mounted venting. I could not be happier with the Lennox. I am so glad I chose the Lennox over another brand. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has the features I need I have only had it one month but it is super quiet and I believe Lennox is a quality product I can rely on for many years. The housing for the filter exchange is easily accessible that anyone can do it. March 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excelent results on heat control quiet with very good circualtion price will pay itself back with efficiency benefits March 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is easy to understand We are very happy with our new furnace. It is nice and quiet when it is running and we now do not notice the cold draft we did before this furnace. March 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Our new furnace is quiet and comfortable. It keeps the temperature even in our home. We have noticed a nice savings in our gas bills with these high efficiency units. We bought 2 furnaces (the same) and 2 air conditioners from Lennox and will receive some nice rebates from our electricity provider. We look forward to many years of comfort and peace of mind with these Lennox products. March 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very quiet! This furnace runs very quietly. We upgraded from an 80% efficient gas furnace to this 96% efficient unit. It runs so much quieter than the old unit. We upgraded the thermostat ourselves. The programmable thermostat that comes with the furnace is very basic. We went with the Nest thermostat, which is programmable through the web. The new thermostat, along with the new furnace, are both working very well for us. March 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Woks better than I ever dreamed My home is so nice and warm and well balanced. Previously I had many hot & cold spots. With the multi speed blower it truly does balance the house very well. March 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet! It is so quiet! I am so very pleased with our new furnace! March 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Satisfied Overall I am satisfied with the EL296. I upgraded the furnace from a single stage high efficiency furnace option through my builder as we run the blower constantly and I wanted a furnace that could run at lower speeds for energy efficiency purposes and reduced noise. While it accomplishes this during the ‘fan only’ setting, when there is a call for heat the blower speed ramps up quite significantly and is quite loud even in first stage heating. If I could go back I would have gone with the model that allows constantly variable speed for the blower. March 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Price to value ratio very good I did a lot of research before making my purchase, not only on the type of replacement unit, but the upfront cost vs. the long term return. I am very satisfied with the sound level (very quiet) and the installation. March 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by compact and quite This unit is very quite I was amazed being compared with the last one I had. It keeps our house nice and cosy on cold days. The unit is a lot smaller then my other one , takes up less room but is powerful enough to get the job done. March 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I donèt imagine I will ever need another furnace, but if I do, it will be a Lennox. I especially like how quiet this unit is. I especially like how quiet this unit is. The furnace room is next to my bedroom but it has never disturbed my sleep. February 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very quiet comfort I have not had this furnace very long, but it is so wonderful that I am ecstatic. I cannot hear it running, and the house is evenly heated throughout. I should have purchased it sooner! February 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Love my SLP98! It keeps our home very comfortable. It is very quiet and most of all, it has reduced our gas bill. Very happy! February 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet furnace, very efficient Compared to our old Lennox furnace, this unit is so quiet you almost wouldn't know it was on. We are waiting to see how it compares for the cost of heating but I think it will be an improvement. Thanks! February 24, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by quiet This new unit is much quieter and definately more efficient than our older unit. I like the fact that it has two stages, but generally only needs the first stage. I felt the difference in the bedrooms immediately. February 20, 2013
