Merit ML196E Series
Single-Stage, 96% Fuel-Efficient Gas Furnace with Power Saver™ Constant-Torque Motor Design
The Power Saver™ constant torque motor in the ML196E uses less energy in both heating and cooling modes, helping you save on utility bills. Flexible airflow based on a home’s ductwork makes this furnace 33% more efficient than older furnaces, while also delivering high gas efficiency with the 96% AFUE.
- Low NOX – Approved by the California Energy Commission and meets California Nitrogen Oxides Standard (NOx) limits of 40 ng/J
- Energy-Efficient Design – With an energy rating of 96% AFUE, you pay for perfectly heated air, not wasted energy.
- Dual-fuel operation – When the ML196E is paired with a Lennox® heat pump, it creates a system that automatically switches between electricity and gas, keeping you warm and energy efficient.
- Duralok Plus™ heat exchanger, built for Lennox’ high-efficiency (90%) condensing gas furnaces, that’s made of high-quality, patented ArmorTuf™ steel to ensure high reliability and efficiency.
