Lennox EL280 Product Feature

Your furnace is an important appliance that helps you live a comfortable life in the midst of a quite harsh winter. But at some point, like any other device, it is bound to fail and have a downturn in performance.

If your heating system has been in need of frequent repairs in the past two years, or if there has been a steady increase on your heating costs, it may be time for you to consider replacing your heating system.

Bratcher Heating and Air Conditioning concentrates on making your home comfortable and energy efficient. That is why we partnered with Lennox Industries to provide you with the best products in heating and cooling.

We are the preferred heating company in Bloomington, IL that offers an array of innovative furnaces designed to give you comfort and safety.

This article talks about the Lennox model EL280 that produces consistent temperatures with two-stage heating, promising greater efficiency and better comfort compared to older, inefficient furnaces.


The EL280 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.

The EL280’s ultra-low continuous fan speed provides a quiet, constant flow of air and enhances indoor air quality devices.

When matched with a Lennox air conditioner or heat pump, the EL280 can improve your cooling Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), which leads to greater energy efficiency and lower energy costs.

Energy Efficiency

With an efficiency rating of up to 80 percent AFUE, the EL280 can save you hundreds of dollars in heating costs per year, compared to older, low-efficiency furnaces. (Actual savings will vary depending on your area’s fuel rates and your family’s lifestyle.)

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

To minimize heat loss and maximize comfort and efficiency, Lennox created a sealed blower compartment for the EL280.


This furnace has a Duralok Plus heat exchanger that is built from patented ArmorTuf steel that captures waste heat, and a stainless steel secondary heat exchanger that enables the unit to achieve industry-leading efficiency levels. This solid component exceeds industry requirements and extends the EL280’s lifespan.

The EL280’s SureLight igniter increases its lifetime and improves reliability.

Its SureLight control board effectively controls its operation, guaranteeing better reliability and efficiency.

To further lessen heat loss, Lennox designed the EL280 with an elegantly-styled, durable steel cabinet with high-quality paint finish.

The EL280 include special sound-absorbing materials that further reduce sound for even quieter operation.
