Lennox is thrilled to share that the Dave Lennox Signature Collection SL25XPV Heat Pump was selected as a winner for the 2022 GOOD DESIGN Award! As part of the Ultimate Comfort System, the SL25XPV is the most precise and efficient heat pump available.
In building on our promise of innovation and providing the highest efficiencies available, Lennox has developed the SL25XPV variable-capacity, inverter-driven, ultra-efficient heat pump. The SL25XPV features system ratings up to 24 SEER/15.5 EER/11.8 HSPF and exceptional heating performance and efficiency at low ambient conditions. It creates opportunities for higher-level efficiency requirements and more separation for differentiation in the ultra-efficiency market.
This heat pump has also been designated as one of the Most Efficient ENERGY STAR® certified products in 2022. Products that are recognized as the Most Efficient of ENERGY STAR in 2022 prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting rigorous energy efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Presented by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd., the annual GOOD DESIGN Awards Program is the oldest and most prestigious program for design excellence worldwide. Submissions to the program are judged by a jury of design professionals and leading industry specialists on criteria for the highest aesthetic in terms of design, new technologies, function, energy efficiency and sensitivity to the environment, among others. With the GOOD DESIGN awards program receiving a record-breaking number of submissions this year, Lennox is honored to be selected as a winner.
“On behalf of Lennox Industries and our world-class engineering and product teams, we are honored to be part of this year’s distinguished GOOD DESIGN Awards program,” said John Whinery, VP of Product Management, Lennox Industries. “The SL25XPV is the most precise and efficient heat pump on the market, representing Lennox’ dedication to sustainability-driven innovation and unwavering focus on quality.”

Lennox is excited to announce that we were recently named one of the top ten most trustworthy companies of 2022 in the construction space. Newsweek & Statistica deployed a survey to 50,000 U.S. residents who were asked if they believed individual companies treated their customers fairly, treated their employees fairly and would be good long-term investments. The companies included in the survey were publicly traded U.S. corporations in 22 industries with $500 million or more in annual revenues. We believe this honor further confirms our core values of integrity, respect and excellence that has been intentionally built brick by brick for over 125 years. As you know, Lennox also holds our dealers to these core values, and we want to extend this recognition to you, our dealers, who have been integral partners in helping us build and elevate our legacy.Link to Article: https://www.newsweek.com/americas-most-trustworthy-companies-2022/construction
Lennox made headlines recently by being first to enter and first to complete the objectives of the U.S. Department of Energy’s “Cold Climate Heat Pump Technology Challenge”. In June, U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm came to Texas to personally congratulate our research and development team for the accomplishment.
Following up, clean technologies news aggregator CleanTechnica cited Lennox International for getting the DOE program “off to a roaring start,” pointing out that our prototype was not only the first, but also that it came in one year ahead of schedule, adding that “cold weather heat pumps for buildings could accomplish more planet-saving cuts in global emissions than a highway full of EVs (electric vehicles).”
Media outlets were in full force for IBS 2022, and Lennox was pleased to be featured by many reputable sources.
Speaking to industry source The ACHR News, Brandon Chase, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Lennox Industries predicted that, as awareness grows among both residential and commercial users, heat pumps will become the primary heating source.
Highlights from the show itself include the BobVila.com feature on the Dave Lennox Signature® Collection SL25XPV Heat Pump, which Lennox was featured in the top three of their list of “10 Coolest Things We Saw,” focusing on the product’s “benefit to both homeowners’ wallets and the environment.”
Lennox also landed a spotlight on the A&E Networks series, Home.Made.Nation with interviews of Lennox Industries’ VP and GM, Quan Nguyen, speaking on new trends and how technology is improving homes, and Senior Product Marketing Manager, Ingrid Berkley, on the PureAir™S Air Purification System.
Recently several industry magazines have touted our dedication to environmental sustainability, most recently in this March/April article in Yield Pro magazine. And in November, Contracting Business wrote about our joining a global coalition of companies in the Science Based Targets initiative to tackle climate change.
In another article titled, “New Cold Climate Heat Pump Focused on Accelerating Environmental Sustainability,” Cision’s PRNewswire quoted Tim Brizendine, Director of Product Management speaking about the SL25XPV heat pump and saying it offers “the highest possible efficiency for the lowest environmental impact.”
In the same article Betty Ungerman, VP, Deputy General Counsel/Chief ESG, Ethics & Compliance Officer, added that we are “furthering our heritage of bringing the most efficient and innovative products to market to reduce our end-users’ carbon footprint.”
Both Cision’s PRNewswire and Today’s A/C & Refrigeration News published articles announcing the Lennox Industries launch of Warranty Your Way™, the opportunity for homeowners to obtain 3-year labor coverage at no additional cost, which is the first and only option of its kind in the industry. They quoted Lennox Industries’ VP and GM, Quan Nguyen, who said “With the launch of Warranty Your Way, we are setting the new standard for HVAC manufacturer limited warranties and continuing Lennox’ legacy of innovation in all aspects of the industry. We’re giving homeowners the transparency and peace of mind to feel confident about their warranty parts and labor coverage and keep their home comfort system performing optimally. Through our new industry-leading warranty offering, we’re proving that perfect air isn’t just something Lennox talks about—it’s something we stand behind.“
