The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has selected Lennox Industries Inc., a subsidiary of Lennox International Inc., as an Energy Star Manufacturer of the Year for Lennox' outstanding contribution to making and promoting energy-efficient products. It is the first time a heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) manufacturer has been chosen for the annual EPA award. Energy Star award winners are selected from thousands of organizations that participate in the program. "Lennox Industries is committed to providing both homeowners and business owners with the most energy efficient products possible," said Bob Schjerven, chief executive officer, Lennox International Inc. "Being selected by the EPA as an Energy Star Manufacturer of the Year honors that high level of commitment." Mr. Schjerven noted Lennox Industries' recent introduction of the HSX19 air conditioner -- the most quiet and efficient central air-conditioner in the industry, according to manufacturer's published ratings -- as just one compelling example of the company's leadership position. "In every aspect of their business -- from products to consumer education, to technical education and training -- Lennox Industries is sending and continually reinforcing a strong message about the importance of using energy more efficiently." Virtually all products in Lennox' Dave Lennox Signature(TM) Collection of top-of-the-line HVAC products meet Energy Star requirements. In addition, national consumer education campaigns, featuring a message of energy efficiency, resulted in over half a billion impressions in 2002. Consumers can also find out more about the importance of energy efficient HVAC products at the Lennox Industries consumer site (www.lennox.com ), which features a dedicated Energy Star page. Several of the products in Lennox' L Series(R) line of commercial HVAC equipment, featuring the industry's Lowest LifeCycle Cost(TM) savings, recently received an award from the Department of Energy related to savings on lifecycle costs. Highly active in several key energy utility programs in Texas, California, New England, Oregon, and soon Utah, Lennox Industries also participated in the Energy Star Cool Change promotion, helping to communicate the important message consumers can save money through buying high efficiency HVAC products. Partly because of its promotion of Energy Star and energy efficiency, Lennox was also recently recognized as Good Housekeeping Marketer of the Year.
