96% efficient, single-stage gas valve, ECM motor. High-efficiency, variable speed gas furnace!
Constant torque for powerful efficiency
- The Power Saver™ constant torque motor in the EL196 adjusts airspeed based on demand. That lets it operate more efficiently than a standard motor.
Dual-fuel capability for year-round savings
- When the EL196 is paired with a Lennox®heat pump, it creates a system that can automatically alternate between electricity and gas fuel to keep you warm. So you’re always using the most energy-efficient way to keep comfortable.
- Because it’s made with special sound-absorbing materials, the EL196 operates at very low sound levels. And because it has a Power Saver constant torque motor, you won’t ever hear loud startup sounds.
- Every component of the EL196 is rigorously tested in our dedicated research lab. So you can count on the furnace to deliver the highest levels of reliability and performance.
