  • Features

    Overview

    Here are some of the top features of the EL296E:

    Efficiency rating of 96% AFUE can save you hundreds of dollars each year*, compared to standard furnaces.

    ENERGY STAR® certified which means the furnace meets or exceeds U.S. federal guidelines for energy efficiency.

    Power Saver™ constant torque motor adjusts airspeed based on demand, helping the furnace use less energy in heating and cooling modes.

    Power Saver technology not only provides energy boost capabilities improving the overall system efficiency, similar to a variable speed furnace, but also delivers higher SEER ratings in cooling mode. In continuous fan mode, this technology helps keep energy waste at a minimum.

    Two-Stage Gas Valve operates at a lower heating output for efficiency, switching to a higher output as needed.

    Energy Efficiency

        *This chart depicts potential energy savings you can expect from the EL296E furnace, versus older furnaces with lower efficiency ratings. Criteria used in this example are 2,000 full-load heating hours, with a 60,000 Btuh heating design load and $1.368 ccf for gas. Your actual savings may vary, depending on the weather patterns in your local area, local fuel rates and your individual lifestyle.
