Elite® Series

EL196E Gas Furnace

Single-stage furnace with Power Saver™ technology

Overview

    Here are some of the top features of the EL196E:

    Efficiency rating of 96% AFUE can save you hundreds of dollars each year* compared to standard furnaces.

    ENERGY STAR® certified which means the furnace meets or exceeds U.S. federal guidelines for energy efficiency.**

    Power Saver™ constant torque motor adjusts airspeed based on demand, helping the furnace use less energy in heating and cooling modes. Power Saver technology not only provides energy boost capabilities improving the overall system efficiency, similar to a variable speed furnace, but also delivers higher system SEER ratings.

    Fully insulated cabinet ensures quiet, efficient operation.
