Fine-tune your environment

The EL280E gas furnace features two-stage operation using a bigger flame when heating demands are greater, and a smaller flame when they’re not, so you get more even temperatures and lower gas usage.

Efficient and versatile

The EL280E gas furnace has an 80% AFUE* energy rating, which can significantly reduce your heating costs compared to older furnaces. And because it’s dual-fuel capable, you can pair it with a Lennox heat pump for even more efficient operation.
