Comparison Between Lennox ML195 and Lennox EL195E High Efficiency Gas Furnace.

What are the value added benefits to customers with the new EL195E furnace?

1.       Lennox customers will save more money every time their HVAC system is operating.

  The difference between the ML195 PSC motor and the EL195E ECM X13 motor is that the ECM motor is much more efficient. Why? Because it uses a brushless Direct Current (DC) motor, similar to the ECM motor if you’re already familiar with in a variable speed furnace. The ECM X13 motor is almost as energy efficient as a variable speed motor.

What are the cost savings?
Annual operating costs can be 25% 61% lower per year, based on usage

EL195 PSC Motor:
Cooling mode:  552 watts
Continuous fan mode:  515 watts
EL195E ECM X13 Motor:
Cooling mode:  413 watts
Continuous fan mode:  200 watts
Savings:




139 watts



315 watts





25% Savings



61% savings
The EL195E allows your customer to reduce their cooling bill by at least 25% over the ML195!

2.       The customer can benefit with the EL195E by improving their indoor air quality.

 If the customer was previously reluctant to use their circulating fan in constant mode because of the potential high cost of operation, they can now have improved air quality for less than half the cost it was before. That equates to $1320 savings over a 5 year period. *Running in continuous mode. *Avg. U.S. Energy Price $0.132

3.       How about increase in SEER?

 This motor will also increase the efficiency of your air conditioner by 1 or more SEER points. This is very attractive in today’s environment for your price conscious consumers, who may trade down to lower SEER units.

Energy Saving Tips

For the modern customer, HVAC energy efficiency is a top concern and popular point of conversation. In honor of Earth Month, I've outlined the top five energy-saving tips that you can reference when your customers ask about improving their home energy efficiency. Replace filters often - Hands down the best thing you can do to improve your energy efficiency is to replace your air filters often. The more debris that's in the filter, the less air can circulate through the HVAC system, making it work harder. The harder your HVAC unit works, the more energy it uses.Set a schedule - Constantly adjusting your thermostat uses a lot of energy.  Set your thermostat to a comfortable temperature that reflects your schedule so that your unit isn't cooling an empty house or working overtime when you're away.Air sealing - A quick, inexpensive air-sealing fix can mean big savings on utilities. Blocking outside air from coming in not only helps keep allergies and other irritants out of …
