3 Reasons to Love the Lennox SL280V Variable-Speed Gas Furnace

Posted: 2018-11-27

Your furnace’s blower motor contributes to the overall energy efficiency of the unit. Once your furnace has heated the air within the system, the blower motor turns on a fan to circulate that warm air out of the furnace and into your home. This component is important as it ensures that your home reaches the temperature set on your thermostat.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is a leading heating company in Hugo MN that offers a number of variable-speed gas furnaces designed to create a comfortable home environment.

If you are searching for a new furnace, you might want to consider the Lennox SL280V, one of the models in the company’s Signature Series. In case you’re wondering why this furnace might be the right one for you, allow us to show you three reasons.

It’s energy-efficient.

Variable-speed furnaces don’t tend to overwork because they can control their operation to correspond to your heating needs. Since your fan doesn’t run at the maximum all the time, it uses less energy, which means lower energy bills.

The Lennox SL280V’s dual-fuel capability can be combined with an electric heat pump to create a dual-fuel system that improves comfort and fuel efficiency by effortlessly alternating between electric and gas heat, optimizing energy use and reducing heating costs.

This furnace has an efficiency rating of up to 80 percent AFUE, which can save you hundreds of dollars in heating costs per year, compared to older, low-efficiency furnaces.

When installed with the user-friendly programmable iComfort Wi-Fi thermostat, the SL280V’s iComfort technology will enable the furnace to swap information and make accurate adjustments to optimize performance and fuel efficiency.

To lessen heat loss and boost comfort and efficiency, Lennox created a sealed blower compartment for this model.

When matched with a Lennox air conditioner or heat pump, the SL280V can enhance your cooling Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), which leads to greater energy-efficiency as well as lower energy costs.

To further decrease heat loss, the SL280V has a durable steel cabinet that is elegantly-styled with high-quality paint finish.

It operates silently.

Operating your fan at a lower speed when the top speed isn’t required results in a much quiet overall performance. The unit won’t create a consistent loud noise that accompanies the blower going on when the temperature has dropped. One functional benefit of variable-speed operation is that it continuously distributes heated air throughout your home. This is also advantageous for you in terms of indoor air quality since the air that passes through your furnace is filtered more often, eliminating more airborne contaminants.

The Lennox SL280V is considered as the quietest furnace in its price range. With its SilentComfort™ technology that uses advanced engineering and special sound-absorbing materials, it is up to 4 times quieter than similar models.

It gives you better control over your home’s temperature.

The SL280V, being a variable-speed furnace, can manage indoor air temperature with the precision that traditional single-speed furnaces can’t match. A traditional furnace pushes a predefined amount of hot air into a room until a certain temperature is met. Then, it turns off until the temperature lowers again while a variable-speed furnace is able to effectively distribute enough heated air into a space to keep a specific temperature.

This model comes with a Duralok Plus heat exchanger, which is built from patented ArmorTuf steel that captures waste heat, and a stainless steel secondary heat exchanger that allows the unit to achieve industry-leading efficiency levels. This solid component exceeds industry requirements and extends the furnace’s life.

Its variable-speed motor provides a quiet and consistent flow of air for an ideal balance of temperature and humidity throughout your home, giving your home enhanced comfort.

The SL280V’s ultra-low continuous fan speed provides a quiet, constant flow of air and optimizes indoor air quality devices.
