Two-stage heat, one serious commitment to performance

Two-stage heat, one serious commitment to performance

Conventional furnaces are either off or on. But the EL296E can output heat at two different intensities, allowing it to fine-tune your comfort and your energy use in perfect balance.

Makes your air feel great, even in the summer

The EL296E also has the power to make your home feel better during summer months. By operating at its lower speed, air spends more time in contact with the outside coil, the cooling engine of your air-conditioning unit. This helps reduce moisture levels inside your home to enhance your comfort.

We figured we might save a few dollars however when we get our bills we cannot believe the saving over the previous furnace.

-Benjie Taylors

Constant torque, constant efficiency

The Power Saver™ constant torque motor adjusts airspeed based on demand, helping the furnace use less energy in both heating and cooling modes.

Built for exceptional reliability

Every component of the EL296E has proven itself through extensive testing in our research labs. So you can take comfort knowing the furnace will deliver reliable performance, season after season.

Dual-fuel capability means smarter energy use

When the EL296E is paired with a Lennox® heat pump, it creates a system that can automatically alternate between electricity and gas fuel to keep you warm. So you’re always using the most energy-efficient way to keep comfortable.

Annoying Noise

December 27, 2020

We just moved into our new home, 3800 sf luxury home and the Lennox air and heating is working great but when the gas furnace runs, it makes a loud annoying cherping/squeaking sound and the installer says it's normal?
