Elite® Series EL280 Two-Stage Gas Furnace

Consistent temperatures with two-stage heating


Efficiency rating of 80% AFUE can save you hundreds of dollars each year* compared to older furnaces.

Improved cooling SEER efficiency is achieved by matching the EL280 with a Lennox air conditioner or heat pump.**

Continuous low-speed fan slowly circulates air for improved comfort and improved indoor air quality.the furnace meets or exceeds U.S. federal guidelines for energy efficiency.

Power Saver™ motor operates at constant torque to help maintain consistent air flow.

Power Saver technology not only provides energy boost capabilities improving the overall system efficiency, similar to a variable speed furnace, but also delivers higher SEER ratings in cooling mode. In continuous fan mode, this technology helps keep energy waste at a minimum.

Two-Stage Gas Valve operates at a lower heating output for efficiency, switching to a higher output as needed.

Energy Efficiency

80% AFUE heating efficiency - rating can save you hundreds of dollars each year, compared to older furnaces

Improved cooling efficiency - achieved by matching with a Lennox air conditioner or heat pump, the EL280 will improve the system's SEER**

Dual-fuel capability - can be combined with an electric heat pump to create a dual-fuel system. This combination minimizes heating costs by seamlessly alternating between the two energy sources, depending on outdoor conditions.

Sealed blower compartment - minimizes losses and maximizes efficiency and comfort

Quiet Operation

Special sound-absorbing materials—further reduce sound for even quieter operation

Home Comfort

Two-stage operation - provides more even temperatures in your home

Continuous low-speed fan slowly circulates air for improved comfort and improved indoor air quality.


Duralok™ heat exchanger - made of patented ArmourTuf™ steel. Life-tested in excess of agency requirements for long product life and durability

SureLight® igniter - silicone nitride construction ensures long product life and reliable operation

SureLight control board - controls furnace operation to ensure high reliability and efficiency

Durable steel cabinet - sleekly styled and made to last with a contoured design and high-quality paint finish


*This chart depicts potential energy savings you can expect from the EL280 furnace, versus older furnaces with lower efficiency ratings. Criteria used in this example are 2,000 full-load heating hours, with a 60,000 Btuh heating design load and $1.368 ccf for gas. Your actual savings may vary, depending on the weather patterns in your local area, local fuel rates and your individual lifestyle.
