Why Choose a Constant Torque Motor: Featuring the Lennox EL195E Gas Furnace

Posted: 2018-12-25

Technological advancements allow manufacturers to design furnaces that are both energy-efficient and safe. Lennox, one of the best names in home comfort technology, engineered the EL195E, a gas furnace equipped with a Power Saver™ motor. This is a constant torque furnace that has the ability to improve your comfort while lowering your energy costs at the same time.

A furnace with a constant torque motor is the answer to your quest for comfort without having to spend too much on a heating system.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted heating company in Vadnais Heights, MN that offers energy-efficient furnaces, including those that incorporate constant torque motors.

Here are four reasons why you should upgrade to a constant torque motor furnace.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Furnaces with constant torque motors distribute air slowly and for longer periods of time, which gives the system more time to catch more pollutants through the filter. As a result, your home enjoys an improved indoor air quality while lowering the risks of respiratory illnesses.

A More Consistent Airflow

Compared to PSC motors, constant torque motors deliver more consistent airflow, keeping homeowners consistently comfortable. This is essential in eliminating hot and cold spots for more even temperatures throughout the home.

More Energy Savings

Furnaces using constant torque motors have an increased overall efficiency. Factors such as your lifestyle, the size of your home, and your locality, a constant torque motor-powered furnace can help you save up to several hundred dollars in energy savings per year, compared to a standard PSC motor.

Federal Tax Credits

Since constant torque motors play a part in energy efficiency, furnaces that utilize constant torque motor technology may qualify for up to $1,500 in tax credits under the current federal program. If eligible, the constant torque motor will be defined as an advanced air circulating fan, which means that the motor itself uses about 2 percent of total annual energy used by the furnace, as determined by the Department of Energy test procedures.

Features of the Lennox EL195E GAs Furnace

The EL195E is an ENERGY STAR® qualified furnace. Heating systems that have the ENERGY STAR® label meet or even exceed the U.S. federal standards for energy efficiency. In order for a product to receive the ENERGY STAR label, it should meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). When you choose an ENERGY STAR certified furnace and take steps to optimize its performance, you can improve your home’s comfort while saving energy in the process. This results in lower energy costs as it also protects the climate by helping prevent harmful carbon pollution and reducing other greenhouse gases.

If you live in a cold climate, it is recommended to invest in the highest-efficiency system, as it gives you greater savings.

The EL195E’s Power Saver™ motor operates at constant torque to help maintain consistent airflow. Power Saver technology not only provides energy boost capabilities improving the overall system efficiency, similar to a variable speed furnace, but also delivers higher SEER ratings in cooling mode. In continuous fan mode, this technology helps keep energy waste to a minimum.

Compared to older, low-efficiency models, the EL195E has an efficiency rating of up to 95 percent AFUE that can save you hundreds of dollars in heating costs per year.

When paired with a Lennox® heat pump, the EL195E 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.

Because it’s made with special sound-absorbing materials, the EL195E operates at very low sound levels. And because it has a Power Saver constant torque motor, you won’t ever hear loud startup sounds.

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.

With product registration, the EL195E may be eligible for a 10-year Limited Extended Warranty. Lennox also offers a 5-year Limited Warranty on covered parts and Limited Lifetime Warranty on the Heat Exchanger.
