RICHARDSON, TX (July 9, 2012) – Lennox was recognized for excellence in product design in the 9th annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. An independent panel of 29 contractors acted as judges in the contest that had 81 entries. The company’s Energence® commercial rooftop unit with MSAV® (multi-stage air volume) supply fan and Environ™ Coil System was the Silver winner in the HVAC Light Commercial Equipment category. The ACHR News is the leading trade magazine in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and refrigeration industries.
News Publisher Mike Murphy stated, "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. The awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions."
“We are thrilled to receive a Silver Award for our newly improved high-efficiency Energence units, which now offer even greater energy and cost savings for our customers,” said Mike Walker, Director of Marketing and Product Management. “Our innovative MSAV (multi-stage air volume) supply fan technology helps to reduce energy usage all year long while still meeting comfort requirements. The new factory-standard Environ Coil offers increased sustainability and improved reliability.”
Lennox’ Energence 3- to 50-ton packaged rooftop unit product line combines high efficiency performance with the intelligent Prodigy® control system to achieve a low total cost of ownership. Designed to help buildings qualify for LEED® points, the ENERGY STAR® qualified Energence rooftop unit is rated up to 18.0 SEER, 12.8 EER and 14.5 IEER.
New Energence models with optional factory-installed MSAV supply fan technology allow units to lower airflow for a dramatic reduction in energy in multiple modes of operation-including part-load cooling, heating, ventilation and free-cooling. The Environ™ coil system, another recent upgrade on several models, helps the environment by using up to 52% less refrigerant than traditional tube and fin coil systems, with up to 59% less weight in the condenser coil.
Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards are featured in the July 9, 2012 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers, and other industry professionals.
