Save money by installing an energy efficient furnace in your Portland Oregon home.Energy efficient equipment Portland

Are you in the market for a new furnace for your Portland Oregon home but don’t know where to start?

We can help.  We know there’s many factors to consider, such as the size of your home, your budget and your family’s comfort. 

You may be relieved to know that buying the most expensive furnace isn’t always the answer.  That’s why we’re showcasing 2 ENERGY STAR models from Lennox.

  • SLP98V delivers the ultimate in comfort and energy savings
  • EL296E is the best value for those on a budget    

How much money can you save?

Both gas furnaces are ENERGY STAR qualified and have AFUE ratings of 98.2% and 96%.  When compared to a 65% AFUE-rated furnace (which is common for older furnaces), Portland homeowners can save up to $800 each year.

If you add up the savings over the lifetime of the furnace (which can be 15 years or more), you can easily see that it pays for itself.  Plus, you’re saving energy and that’s good for everyone.

EL296E is the best bang for your buckLennox gas furnace

From the Lennox Elite Series, this 2-stage furnace is highly efficient at 96% AFUE and delivers the comfort you want while being easy on your pocketbook.

The Power Saver Constant Torque motor is up to 33% more efficient than a standard 1-stage motor and operates at a constant speed so it provides a continuous flow of perfectly conditioned air.

When the air inside your home is at the right level of humidity, it will feel more comfortable no matter what the temperature is like outside.
