No need to place bulb outside of cabinet at installation

3. Easier access

Single gauge metal cabinet allows for easier removal of high and low voltage redesigned knockouts
Metal condensate drain knockouts converted to rubber snap-in grommets for easier access
Electric heat knockouts replaced with a cover plate for easier removal during installation of electric heatstrips

4. Standardized cabinet fasteners

Standardized to a single thread size and clip fasteners throughout cabinet

5. Improved fit and finish

Enhanced insulation installation methodology for improved adhesion
Tighter and consistent bend radius (cabinet corners and top caps)
Improved filter rail design for easier installation and removal

New Lennox Quantum™ coil improves reliability

More than 10 years of research and design went into the development of the Lennox Quantum condenser coils. These fortified aluminum tube and fin coils eliminate dissimilar metals which helps guard against fin loss due to galvanic corrosion. Although the coil is constructed of a fortified copper, the field connections to the unit are copper, allowing the contractor to use standard installation practices to install the unit.

Baso BGN891-1C For Lennox Pulse Furnaces Expected to Arrive Soon at CozyParts

We have been getting a lot of phone calls wanting to know when we were going to get the new Baso Control for Lennox Pulse Furnaces. We expect a shipment the week of January 9th. We are keeping our fingers crossed because we know a lot of HVAC servicers have people customers that are waiting on this part ot arrive. The BGN891-1C is a new product from Baso and is in production now. The BGN891-1C is set up in our online parts catalog and you can view the product detail page by following this link.

We will update when we know more.

Lennox HS21/HP21 Compressor Warranty Announcement

Recently, Lennox has learned that the compressors for the HS21/HP21 units – introduced in 1994 and sold until June 2003 – are no longer commercially available, yet the newest of these units still have a year or more of compressor warranty remaining.

To respond to HS21/HP21 compressor warranty claims when compressors are not available, Lennox will now offer customers a new Aire-Flo 13ACD/13HPD (or future Lennox equivalent) R-22 outdoor unit at no cost to the homeowner (excluding labor, shipping and additional materials). An optional upgrade opportunity is also available.

Lennox Announces Production End of Pulse Furnace Key Component Parts

In October, 2011 Lennox announced that several key components used in the Lennox Pulse product would no longer be available. This will affect the GSR14, G14, GSR21, G21, GSR21V and G21V product lines.

We have sold all of our available inventory of the 60J00 (60J0001) ignition control, 43G62 (43G6201) spark plug, and the 64K60 (64L6001) flame sensor used in these product lines.

If you have a GSR21, GSR21V, G21, or G21V series furnace in residential service that is less than 15 years old , and one of these key components fails, Lennox does have a program that will help you get a new furnace. Contact your local dealer if you feel that you feel that you qualify under this program.

Lennox Industries Announces New Line of Healthy Climate Whole House Humidifers

Lennox Industries recently announced the introduction of a NEW, redesigned line of Healthy Climate Whole-Home Humidifiers. The new Healthy Climate Whole-Home Humidifiers work with a central comfort system to provide homeowners with a more comfortable, healthier indoor environment. With three capacities, automatic or manual control options and improved design and durability, you can trust Healthy Climate humidifiers to provide the right whole-home solution.

Designed to easily integrate with existing comfort systems, the new Healthy Climate humidifiers are easier to install. A fixed, side-mounted solenoid valve no longer needs to be changed depending on install side — simply swap the tray, plug and drain locations. Fewer parts on the distribution tray also speeds up installation. A plastic feed tube allows for laminar flow and reduces water noise. Bases and front covers are made with a strong thermoplastic material. And bypass model front covers now include a molded-in top/bottom snap-fit. All this, plus a fresh new look.

What is MERV? – Features, Benefits and Information

The MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating of a filter describes the size of the holes in the filter that allow air to pass through. The higher the MERV rating, the smaller the holes in the filter, the higher the efficiency.

Recently the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the air filter industry have come up with a standardized rating system, based on the European concept, of a MERV rating for each type of air filter. This numbering system makes it easier to evaluate and compare mechanical air filters and will hopefully eliminate some of the confusion regarding the overall effectiveness of any type of a mechanical air filter on removing airborne particulates, especially those that are less than 2 microns in size.

COMPARING VARIOUS AIR FILTERS TO MERV RATINGS

Throw-Away Fiberglass Media MERV 1 -MERV 4
Pleated Media Air Filters 30% ASHRAE MERV 10 – MERV 11
Pleated Media Air Filters 65% ASHRAE MERV 13 *
(* 65% ASHRAE is about 20% effective on less than 1 micron particles)
Pleated Media Air Filters 95% ASHRAE MERV 14

Some of the man-made synthetic media like that used in the 3M Filtrete air filters may be rated MERV 15. However, they hold very little dust and load up quickly and have a relatively high-pressure drop (static pressure) and can affect the performance of the heating/cooling system.
