DALLAS, TX – July 12, 2010 – The first rooftop line of its kind to break the 17.0 SEER barrier for energy efficiency*, Lennox’ Energence® rooftop unit line has been honored by the 6th annual Dealer Design Awards for excellence in product design.
Designed to reduce startup issues up to 60 percent and offer the lowest total cost of ownership in their class, Energence 3- to 50-ton rooftop units received the Silver award from an independent panel of 30 contractors acting as judges for The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. Energence units offer unparalleled energy savings to reduce operational costs and qualify for LEED? credits.
“We’re excited that the industry has recognized the Energence line for what it offers building owners, contractors and engineers. It’s not just the most efficient unit of its kind. Energence systems are also the only ones that provide proof of performance by displaying real-time confirmation that the unit is operating the way it should,” says Larry Wei, a senior product manager for Lennox Industries Inc.
“These awards give us a unique opportunity to recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into many of the products serving the HVACR industry and the awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions," says News publisher John Conrad.
Only Energence units feature the Prodigy™ control system to verify proper installation and operation, and the SmartWire™ system to help ensure accurate startup, decrease service time and simplify field installation of sensors or thermostats.
