Lennox Wins Green Product Awards

When California enacted new standards to reduce emissions and improve air quality, Lennox led the way in bringing the industry's first ultra-low emissions furnace to market.

Ever committed to innovation, Lennox didn't just create one but four ultra-low emissions furnaces in California that produce 65 percent lower Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions than standard low-NOx furnaces.

If you're not familiar with NOx emissions, you should know that NOx poses problems for people and the environment. When people breathe in NOx, they often experience increased respiratory problems since NOx inflames the lining of the lungs. This can lead to wheezing, coughing, colds, bronchitis, and worsening asthma. When NOx levels rise, vegetation also suffers in the form of leaf damage and reduced growth.

As a company with a 125-year legacy of developing industry-leading products, Lennox wanted to do something about this problem. The industry took note, recognizing Lennox with multiple awards for sustainable environmental impact. 

Here's a look at some of the awards Lennox has received for its ultra-low emissions products:
