Energy efficiency

Investing in a high-efficiency HVAC system is one of the most effective steps you can take to reduce operational costs. Lennox has a well-established legacy of providing energy-efficient HVAC solutions that also deliver continuous comfort for a variety of applications including retail, commercial, schools and supermarkets.

ENERGY STAR® qualified products

ENERGY STAR® is a government program for energy efficiency sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy. Designed to save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and services, the ENERGY STAR program aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants that harm the earth. It is also intended to help consumers identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing comfort.

Overall, ENERGY STAR qualified light commercial equipment uses 7-10% less energy than standard equipment. Qualified equipment is designed to help you save money on utility bills while reducing energy waste.

Consider these facts:

  • Over the lifetime of your equipment, using ENERGY STAR will save your business approximately $1.70 per square foot.
  • Space cooling accounts for roughly 15% of electricity in commercial buildings.
  • 25% of all rooftop HVAC units are oversized, resulting in extra wear on equipment and higher energy costs.

Consortium for Energy Efficiency and Utility Rebate Programs

The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE), is a national, non-profit public benefits corporation promoting the manufacture and purchase of energy efficient products and services. The goal of the consortium is to increase the use of energy-efficient technologies in the marketplace by implementing long-lasting structural and behavioral changes. CEE members are composed of both public and private utilities. CEE works with program sponsors through the High-Efficiency Commercial Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Initiative (HECAC) to promote high-efficiency specifications and quality installation of unitary air conditioning and heat pump equipment. In order to determine the efficiency of HVAC products, CEE uses an elevated tier rating system.

Each tier of the CEE program is based on the energy efficiency ratio (EER) and the part load ratio (SEER or IEER) of the qualifying product.

  • The CEE Tier 1 system is similar to the current ENERGY STAR specifications.
  • Tier 2 features a higher level of EER and SEER standards.

Many utility companies offer incentives for commercial customers who purchase energy-efficient commercial HVAC units based on the CEE tiers.

  • Based on CEE ratings, 3- and 5-ton Lennox® units are 31% more efficient than federal standards, which can equal a significant cost savings to your business.
  • Lennox’ Energence® and Strategos® packaged rooftop unit lines include some of the most energy efficient ratings on the market.

Depending on the area in which your business is located, you may qualify for energy rebates through your utility company when you purchase a high efficiency Lennox commercial heating or cooling system. In addition to federal tax credit savings, you may potentially enjoy a return from your local electricity provider.

Contact your local utility company or Lennox sales rep to find out what rebates are available in your area.
