The iconic furnaces available to Lennox range from an AFUE rating of 80% to 98%. Their premium model, the SLP98V is widely known for its efficiency, and you can’t get anything much better than that.
Carrier Infinity Series Furnaces are, on the other hand, highly appreciated for their efficiency. The infinity series of furnaces, however, range in efficiency from 80-98% AFUE, losing out to Lennox by a thin 0.5 margin. Needless to say, the margin of different is negligible in terms of efficiency.
The premium Lennox Signature comes with a secondary exchanger that ensures maximum utilization of combusted gases. Its duel fuel feature allows the furnace to be bonded with an electric heater to increase efficiency in moderate temperatures.
