The Lennox GWM-IE is a wall-mounted, gas modulating condensing water boiler. It has an efficiency rating of up to 95% AFUE and earned the Energy Star Most Efficient 2014 label. The unit features an electronic ignition control which monitors water temperature and turns on the burner only when necessary, and its sealed combustion design is intended to reduce sound. The stainless steel, finned tube heat exchanger is self-cleaning, while the stainless steel mesh burner is corrosion resistant. A CPVC flue condensate collector offers protection against corrosion and leaking.
I have owned this boiler for a little less than a year. I bought this boiler in November and it has kept me warm all winter without any problems. I like the fact that it keeps my house warm while still being efficient. It's saved me a lot on my energy bill and I don't have to sacrifice my comfort in my home temperature-wise. I've seen a huge difference in my bills as compared to my previous boiler. I don't have any dislikes about it thus far, but it might be a little big for some homes/might take up too much space for some homes. I have never had to repair or replace it. I would recommend this brand to a friend. So far it has been very reliable and every time that I have contacted Lennox about the product they have been very friendly and were able to help me.
"Lennox Boiler – Very Satisfied"
My fiance and I had this boiler installed in our home about two years ago, and so far everything has been perfect! We mostly didn't know much about boilers and chose this boiler initially just because we were familiar with the brand and had read a few good reviews. It helped to cut my heating bills – always a plus! We have never had to repair or replace it, but we do have the 15-year warranty, so I'm not too worried about it. Price was great for the quality. Highly recommended!
"A new world with a New Boiler"
I bought this boiler recently (in the last six months) for a home that I just purchased. Even though I live in Florida, an area where heat is not often a priority, there are winters that require more than others. Plus, being older, I like it warmer than I used to. This boiler was purchased in January and reduced my heating bills from the couple of months using the old boiler by a third. I was not overly happy with some of the installation problems I had but after a couple of tries I think we have ironed out everything. I would heartily recommend this unit but be careful of the contractor you choose.

"A step up in the right directions for my kids"
Unfortunately my kids heat pump broke down this last winter, and it was broken beyond repair. So, I decided I would buy them a boiler. I decided to go with this boiler because of the good reviews, and boy was that a good decision. I bought it about 6 months ago, and their heating bills have pretty much dropped in half. The install wasn't the easiest, but It sure has saved them, and me, because I would sometimes help out with the bills, quite a bit of money. One thing I don't like about it is the lack of a filter. But I only don't like that because, well, I like being able to see whats being filtered out. But that's just being nit picky. You really don't need a filter on these because they're just recycling water to heat the house. I would definitely go with this boiler again and would recommend it to most of my friends. There are a few situations where a boiler wouldn't work depending on your piping, but for most, it's A-okay.
"Lennox GWM-IE Boiler Works Beautifully!"
I bought this boiler about a year and a half ago after buying a property and deciding to flip it. The first thing I noticed was how quiet it ran! After being unable to sell the home, I decided to rent it out. That meant I had to be doing the maintenance. That boiler has not caused me a single problem thus far. I believe that with yearly maintenance this boiler should work for a very long time to come. I would recommended this Lennox boiler to my friends and to my family who are in need of replacing or updating their current boiler.
