To be absolutely sure what this means you will also need to know the model number. If you know the model number you can find documentation here: http://www.lennox.com/support/literature.asp

The following is for the Lennox EL195:

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.
