Lennox Receives First-Place Gold Award for ACHR NEWS 2006 Dealer Design Awards

Dealer Design Award Winner 2006

S-Class™ 35- to 50-ton rooftop unit garners top honor

DALLAS, TX — July 17, 2006 — Lennox Industries Inc. has been recognized for excellence in product design in the third annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration News magazine (ACHR News). An independent panel of 45 contractors acted as judges in the contest that had 112 entries from 75 manufacturers. The company's S-Class™ 35- to 50-ton packaged rooftop unit was the First Place Gold Award winner in the Commercial HVAC category.

"We're very proud to receive this prestigious industry award," stated Mike Walker, product manager for Lennox Commercial. "Lennox is committed to enhanced comfort and efficiency. S-Class rooftop units are an excellent example of Lennox' tradition of leading-edge innovation, quality engineering and reliable performance."

S-Class rooftop units are the industry's most energy-efficient rooftop units* with efficiency ratings independently verified to 10.8 EER and 13.2 IPLV. Selecting S-Class units with the environmentally friendlier refrigerant R-410A is an even better choice for creating sustainable design. These units eliminate the chlorine-containing R-22 refrigerant, which the U.S. will phase out by January 1, 2010 because of R-22's impact on the earth's ozone.

Lennox recently expanded factory-installed options and field-installed accessories available with S-Class rooftop units to meet the increasing range of application and customer needs.

Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards will be featured in the July 17 issue of The News, which is distributed nationally to over 32,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers and other industry professionals.
