Some of the Best Gas Furnaces You Can Buy in Dresden

If you’re searching for a gas furnace replacement in Southwest Ontario, our Dave Lennox Signature Collection gas furnaces are the best option. These models are a couple of the quietest gas furnaces you can find and are highly energy efficient.

Let’s begin with energy efficiency. Our Dave Lennox Signature Collection gas furnaces include variable speed motors, which limit energy use by only working fans at full speed when an extreme change in heat is required. Variable speed motors use 2/3 less energy than single speed motors and may help your family save hundreds of dollars on your annual utility bills compared to standard furnaces.

Product specifications for each Dave Lennox Signature Collection gas furnace model are explained below. To talk with a McFadden Heating & Cooling professional about one of our products in Southwest Ontario, call 1-866-781-0111 or make an appointment online.
