EL296E

Elite® Series EL296E High-Efficiency, Two-Stage Gas Furnace

Two-stage furnace with Power Saver™ technology

 

Overview

Here are some of the top features of the EL296E:

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

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

Power Saver™ motor operates at constant torque to help maintain consistent air flow.

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.

 

Quiet Operation

  • Special sound-absorbing insulation—further reduces sound for quiet operation
  • Durable steel cabinet—made to last with an attractive, high-qulaity textured paint finish
