A Special Feature on the Lennox SL280V

December 26, 2017

If you notice a consistent rise on your heating bills or if your existing furnace has been in need of continual repairs, you may need to consider investing in a new high-efficiency furnace. That’s because older furnaces tend to lose their efficiency due to wear and tear. If your furnace reaches this point, not only is it cumbersome, it is also impractical since you are wasting energy and money because of your inefficient heating system.

If any of these scenarios sound familiar to you, you might want to look at the Lennox SL280V.

Here at Bratcher Heating and Air Conditioning, we take your home comfort very seriously. We want you to have the best comfort while keeping your home energy-efficient. That is why we partnered with Lennox to provide you with some of the best high-efficiency furnaces available on the market today.


The SL280V has an efficiency rating of up to 80 percent AFUE, which can save you hundreds of dollars in heating costs per year, compared to older, low-efficiency furnaces.

Its variable-speed motor provides a quiet and consistent flow of air for an ideal balance of temperature and humidity throughout your home, giving your home enhanced comfort.

In comparison with other competitive models, the SL280V is deemed as the quietest furnace in its class. Thanks to its SilentComfort™ technology that integrates advanced engineering with sound-absorbing insulation to deliver the best in quiet, consistent heating.

The SL280V’s ultra-low continuous fan speed provides a quiet, constant flow of air and optimizes indoor air quality devices.

When matched with a Lennox air conditioner or heat pump, the SL280V can enhance your cooling Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), which leads to  greater energy efficiency and lower energy costs.

Energy Efficiency

Its dual-fuel capability can be merged with an electric heat pump to create a dual-fuel system that maximizes comfort and fuel efficiency by seamlessly alternating between electric and gas heat, optimizing energy use and minimizing heating costs.

When installed with the user-friendly programmable iComfort Wi-Fi thermostat, the SL280V’s iComfort technology will enable the furnace to swap information and make accurate adjustments to optimize performance and fuel efficiency.

To minimize heat loss and maximize comfort and efficiency, Lennox created a sealed blower compartment for this model.


The SL280V has a Duralok Plus heat exchanger which is constructed from patented ArmorTuf steel that captures waste heat, and a stainless steel secondary heat exchanger that allows the unit to achieve industry-leading efficiency levels. This solid component exceeds industry requirements and extends the furnace’s life.

To further decrease heat loss, the SL280V has a durable steel cabinet that is elegantly-styled with high-quality paint finish.

Quiet Operation

The SL280V is viewed as the quietest furnace in its price range. With its SilentComfort™ technology that utilizes advanced engineering and special sound-absorbing materials, it is up to 4 times quieter than comparable models.
