Lennox Launches Ultra Low NOx Gas
Furnace; Meets California Regs.
SL280NV is said to be the first product to meet new
environmental regulations established in several California
Lennox Industries announced the launch of the Lennox SL280NV
Ultra Low NOx gas furnace, part of the Dave Lennox Signature
Collection of high-efficiency HVAC products, which allows
homeowners to feel good about creating better air inside and
outside their home.
This product is the first in Lennox’ new line of
eco-efficient furnaces, which are the first furnaces
available to purchase that meet the low-emission regulations
in certain California markets that now require lower
emissions to reduce air pollution. The product won the “Best
of IBS” Award for "Best Green Building Product" at the
recent 2018 NAHB International Builder’s Show.
The Lennox SL280NV Ultra Low NOx furnace produces 65 percent
lower NOx emissions than standard low NOx furnaces, offering
the ultimate in comfort and emissions compliance. With a
heating efficiency rating of 80 percent AFUE, and as part of
a Lennox iComfort thermostat-enabled system, the SL280NV
delivers exceptional comfort all winter long and helps
homeowners save energy. Lennox’ innovative technology allows
for a higher heat temperature that burns more of the NOx
emissions before releasing them into the air. Additionally,
a variable-speed blower motor and two-stage gas valve allows
the furnace to adjust airflow and heating output to help
homeowners to maintain their ideal temperature throughout
their home, quietly and efficiently.
“The Lennox SL280NV Ultra Low NOx gas furnace is the latest
example of Lennox’ commitment to innovation and its ability
to deliver premium efficiency and comfort to homeowners,”
said John Whinery, vice president, product management for
Lennox. “This first product in Lennox’ new line of
eco-efficient furnaces offers the best of both worlds for
homeowners – quiet and efficient operation with a minimum
impact on the environment. It gives contractors peace of
mind through its ease of installation and maintenance while
providing the only product they can offer to homeowners to
meet new stringent California emissions standards.”

The SL280NV furnace
offers industry-leading features, such as:
•Ultra Smart Control:
When combined with the Lennox iComfortS30 ultra-smart thermostat,
the Lennox SL280NV adjusts the heating for energy savings based on
the homeowner’s routine, helping them save money.
•Comfort: The Lennox
SL280NV variable speed blower can help condensing units control
humidity levels, and also offers continuous filtration for cleaner,
healthier air for homeowners.
Friendly: The Lennox SL280NV operates at two different levels of
heat output, which maintains a consistent temperature in the home
using as little fuel as possible. This helps homeowners stay
comfortable and reduces their utility costs, while lower emissions
help with reducing air pollution.
The Lennox SL280NV Ultra Low NOx furnace has earned the prestigious
“Best of IBS” Award for Best Green Building Product at this year's
NAHB International Builders Show. The awards, presented during a
ceremony on the final day of the show, recognized the SL280NV Ultra
Low NOx gas furnace for its superior performance and energy
efficiency. The award program received hundreds of entries this year
in nine categories, which were judged by 27 industry and media
representatives. Finalists were evaluated on criteria such as
innovation, functionality and design.
