New Raider™ rooftop units offer a value replacement option

Dallas, TX – (January 15, 2013) – Lennox has launched the Raider™ rooftop unit, a light commercial unit designed for compatibility with many replacement installations. Available in 3- to 5-ton gas/electric, electric/electric and heat pump models—and efficiency of 13.0 SEER and up to 11.4 EER—the Raider unit is built to fit the most popular curb sizes currently in use, virtually eliminating the need for an adaptor curb on many replacement jobs.

“The Raider unit gives users great value for their investment, without compromising on quality,” said Eddie Chavez, Rooftop Unit Product Manager, Lennox Commercial. “By offering a footprint that’s compatible with more than 20 years of installed rooftop units, possibly eliminating the need for an adaptor curb, businesses can see savings up to $1,500 dollars per unit, with no associated engineering costs.”

Coupled with the release of the Raider rooftop unit is a company-wide expansion of the emergency replacement program, designed to increase speed and availability of products to the light commercial rooftop industry. With this move, Raider units are stocked and available immediately in many major markets across the U.S. and Canada, and available to 98% of North America within 24–48 hours through local Lennox commercial warehouses and select Lennox PartsPlus™ stores. To further expedite the emergency replacement process, Lennox offers a dedicated hotline to provide contractors quotes within minutes.

The Raider offers many design features created to simplify the installation process and help contractors save time on the job. Its design includes a full-perimeter base rail that provides greater structural integrity, with fork slots on three sides that make it easier to handle when rigging and transporting. Created with replacement compatibility in mind, the unit’s design may also eliminate the need for contractors to run new gas and electrical lines. For added installation convenience, a versatile power entry offers knockout base or horizontal access options for electrical lines. Finally, Lennox’ lightweight Environ™ coil system, standard on each unit, helps make the Raider unit up to 20% lighter than competing commercial units.

Raider units are built using quality materials at Lennox’ award-winning Stuttgart, Arkansas facility known for operational excellence, and must pass more than 200 quality checkpoints in a rigorous run-testing regimen. Factory-testing checkpoints include inspections of each unit component, component verification technology, manufacturing line inspections and four independent state-of-the-art refrigerant leak tests. As a result, the Raider rooftop unit offers years of dependable service and trouble-free operation.

Warranties offered on the Raider rooftop unit include a 10- year limited warranty on the aluminized gas heat exchanger; a 5- year limited warranty on the compressor; a 3- year limited warranty on the Environ Coil System and a 1- year limited warranty on all covered components.
