Read more about LENNOX Furnaces
The G61MP is a high-efficiency gas furnace from Lennox. With more than ten models available, heating capacities in this series range from 44,000 to 132,000 BTU/H and models can reach up to 95 percent AFUE. Units can be installed in upflow, downflow, horizontal right and left positions.
Featuring two-stage heating, the manufacturer explains that the G61MP can help increase efficiency by operating on a lower heat setting until a change in the temperature is detected. At that time, the unit will automatically transition to a high heat setting.
Additional features of this series include: an aluminized stainless steel heat exchanger, continuous low-speed fan, insulated blower compartment to decrease operating noise, and a diagnostic control board. All units are equipped for use with natural gas, but kits are available for conversion to LPG operation.

"Two-stage blower motor unbearably noisy"
Thank goodness our installer, R.G. Wahl in Saline Mich replaced this furnace under warranty. Ironically, the two-stage blower motor is supposed to be quieter than the single stage in the g51 model, but that just was not true for us. The blower motor kept our household up at night. It would whine like a jet plane taking off, then after awhile whine back down to a lower level, then it would either turn off (thankfully), or whine back up. We never knew what it was going to do next... whine up, or turn off, and it just kept us on edge when we were trying to sleep. We are so thankful that our installer replaced it with a different model under warranty, at no charge. Whew!!!!

"Well made UNIT"
Okay so I bought this unit from my boss. I am a qualified gas fitter and I do work on Lennox products. Before I worked on them I was working on American Standard/Trane(Same furnace just different badge). Lennox is well made American product. The thing with gas fired appliances they still need to be maintained. Myself being a gas fitter that works on these unit would recommend this furnace if you are looking to maintain it.

I have Lennox G61mp furnace which I bought on-line. I Am a pipefitter\hvac tech employed in the auto industry.Of course I installed the furnace myself!! The white-rodgers board went bad.I Called Lennox about the 10yr. parts warrantee and was informed unless the furnace was installed and serviced by Lennox I do not have a warrantee at all.I Bought 2 boards on amazon.com $170.00 each. Lennox wanted $500.00 cash for the 15 min easy fix. Beware of Lennox unless you work for them. I Only hope I can last the winter.
