Lennox Industries Inc., a subsidiary of Lennox International Inc. (LII), introduced what it claims are the quietest gas furnaces currently on the market.
The new G61V gas furnace line is the latest addition to Lennox's Dave Lennox Signature™ Collection, a premium product line that also features the HSX19 -- the industry's quietest and most efficient air-conditioner, according to manufacturer's published ratings -- which was introduced earlier this year.
"Studies have shown most homeowners want quieter heating and cooling products, and Lennox continues to make significant strides in quiet engineering with its SilentComfort™ technology," said Bob McDonough, president and COO, Worldwide Heating and Cooling, LII. "The G61V gas furnaces are the latest products featuring this engineering."
Lennox rates the G61V furnace line as the quietest furnaces on the market based on the modified Air- Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute Standard 260, with the sound level based on independent tests of the Lennox G61MPV-36B-070 model and competitive units.
All of the G61V furnaces are also Energy Star products, meeting the Environmental Protection Agency's standards by using at least 20-40 percent less energy, which reduces pollution, Lennox said.
