Lennox Sends Energence® Rooftop Unit on Road Trip

DALLAS, TX – February 11, 2010 – The first of five 24-foot trucks left Lennox headquarters this month to show construction professionals how to reduce operational costs and energy usage with the ultra-efficient Energence® rooftop unit line. All five trucks will be on the road by the end of March, stopping at trade shows, retailers, contractors, engineers, school administration offices and elsewhere in the United States and Canada to demonstrate the industry’s most energy-efficient rooftop unit line in its class*, and the first to break the 17.0 SEER energy-efficiency barrier.

“The Energence rooftop unit line has many new features that our customers have wanted in an HVAC unit with regard to comfort, verification and efficiency, and we wanted to make it as accessible to everyone as possible, without asking them to come to a warehouse or factory to see it,” says Denise Ernst, Lennox’ director of commercial marketing. “With these five trucks serving as mobile training and sales centers, customers can see and touch the actual products, and experience the excellent quality of the Energence units.”

Each truck has room for up to 15 people inside, and includes a five-ton Energence unit featuring almost all of the configurable options available, as well as a trainer that demonstrates how to use the intelligent Prodigy™ control system. The trainer simulates real-life conditions during unit installation, operation, verification and troubleshooting.

The Prodigy control system is among the industry’s most advanced, and is able to:

  • Lead technicians through the installation process
  • Verify the unit has been installed properly and is operating as intended
  • Record when service and maintenance are performed
  • Alter operation to help avoid downtime

The trucks will also demonstrate Lennox’ SmartWire™ system, a color-coded and keyed design that helps ensure accurate setup, can reduce service hours and simplifies field installation of sensors or thermostats.

Truck tours are scheduled across North America throughout 2010, and stops can be arranged by contacting the Lennox sales manager in each district. More information about the Energence rooftop unit line and other energy-saving products is available at www.lennoxcommercial.com, www.energence.com or by calling 1-800-9-LENNOX.
