Economical Energy Efficient Furnace For Portland Homeowners

Portland HomeAre you looking to replace your aging gas furnace but need to find one that won’t drain your bank account?

We have the solution.  As we’d said before, you don’t have to buy the top of the line furnace to save money on your heating cost as there is a less expensive option available.

The ML195 from Lennox is the answer for Portland Oregon homeowners who need an economical energy efficient gas furnace because they are on a budget.

This affordable single stage furnace delivers the comfort you want while saving you money on your heating bills.

Budget friendly gas furnace

Many Portland homes have furnaces that are 10, 15 or even 20 years old and so, they are much less efficient that those on the market today.  The ML195 is 95% AFUE which means that 95% of the fuel is turned into usable energy and only 5% is lost so 95 cents out of every dollar goes towards heating your Portland area home.

How much can you save on your heating bill?

Let’s compare a 60% AFUE furnace to the 95% AFUE ML195.  On a yearly basis, you could save up to 37% from your current heating bill.  Those savings can add up to $3,693 over 5 years and $7,386 over 10 years.

Of course, the actual savings depend on the outside temperature and your own personal settings but you can easily see that you will save money.  When adding up the savings over the lifetime of the furnace, which could be 10 to 20 years, you can see it’s a substantial amount.

Energy efficient gas furnace features

A single stage gas furnace from Lennox’s Merit Series, the ML195 has features only available in Lennox products.

Lennox 95% AFUE gas furnace

  • Duralok Plus Heat Exchanger-constructed of patented ArmorTuf aluminized steel
  • Stainless Steel secondary heat exchanger-reaches high efficiency levels by capturing additional heat
  • SureLight Ignitor-long and reliable product life
  • SureLight Integrated Control-full control of furnace operation
  • Robust Blower Assembly-exceeds industry standard airflow for even temperatures
  • Durable steel cabinet-withstand outside elements
  • Sealed Blower Compartment-less than 1% leakage maximizes efficiency and comfort

Dual-fueled capability

If you want extra savings you can pair this furnace with a heat pump.  Working together, your furnace and heat pump automatically switches between electricity and gas fuels for maximum efficiency.

You may not be aware that a heat pump provides heating and cooling for year-round savings.  There’s no need for an air conditioner since it provides cooling in warm weather, which is just another reason why Portlanders like heat pumps.

Family members with allergies or asthma?

This furnace can be paired with an air filter to trap dust, dirt and other allergens that cause breathing issues.  Adding a humidifier to your home’s heating and cooling system will improve air quality even more and can make a big difference in the comfort level of your home.

Lennox stands behind its products

The ML195 has a 20-year limited warranty on its heat exchanger and a 5-year limited warranty on all remaining components.  You may even be eligible for a 10-year limited warranty with product registration and our Midway rep can give you more details on that.
