Read more about Lennox G61V Pricing

The Lennox G61V is a discontinued variable-speed gas furnace with enhance humidity controls that operates at multiple speeds to regulate the air flow throughout the home.

A SureLight control board ensures easy and efficient functioning of all systems. This furnace is Energy Star rated with an AFUE from 94.6 to 95%. It is a two-stage furnace that provides two levels of heating for temperature control. The design of the Lennox G61V Furnace is CSA certified and has obtained the Good Housekeeping Seal.

The G61V and the G61MPV are identical machines — Lennox is just not consistent in how they refer to the two. (The “G” means “natural gas”, the “61” is the series identifier, and “MPV” means “multi-positional, variable speed”).

"Very Reliable"

I had lennox g61 mpv furnace installed at our house. We found this furnace reliable. It is very quite and heat the house very well

I had two Lennox g61mpv units installed at two locations within four months of each other. Today I had to replace the inducer motor in one and two weeks ago the same moror was replaced on the other unit. At a cost of $235 for labour, I am not impressed. Lennox attitude, so sad, but too bad, we cover the part under warranty, but not labour. If one motor failed I could accept that, but two within weeks of each other, I would say Lennox has a problem their not telling their customers about. I tried calling Lennox and after 30 minute wait on long distance, I got no where. They do not even have an e-mail address that one can contact them on. This is the third time I have had to call Lennox re a problem and the third time they failed to respond. Lennox has a long way to go to improve on their customer service and satisfaction. I really hope someone from Lennox reviews these stories and takes note!

"G61MPV moneypit"

Very Unsatisfied

I own a Lennox g61mpv, for just over 6 years. 9 service calls in that time. I have replaced the igniter twice in the same year, part was not warrantied even though it was less than 8 months old. Just replaced the inducer motor today, which I’m told was recalled for the same condition ours had (cracked plastic housing?), but in our case did not apply…? Repair costs over $900 so far this year, just out of warranty. Purchased a Lennox because I thought they would have figured it out after their Pulse furnace fiasco. I guess not! I know now, to turn on the oven and open the door, as a back up to the G61MPV. Get a good oven!


"Lennox furnace & A/C are working great!"

Very Satisfied

I had the Lennox g61v furnace and the xc14 Air Conditioner installed in my 2300 sq. ft. house about 3 months ago by Humble Heating & Air Conditioning in Hanover Park, IL. So far, both the furnace & the A/C are working great & I have absolutely no complaints. Everything was installed professionally and they did it in a day. I highly recommend Lennox and Humble Heating and A/C.

"Lennox…Never again"

Very Unsatisfied

Had a g61 mpv furnace and a xp15 Heat pump installed in June of ’07. Have had at least 12 service calls on a variety of problems. I had to have a circuit board replace 2 years in a row. It took 20 months and a Regional Tech to find out why my “Heat Pump” wasn’t heating. Was told by the salesman that replacing the filter “now was a thing of the past”. After 20 months this new electronic air filter needs replaced as a cost of $235…what a mistake!!!!!!!!

Other G61V Reviews

Commenters on HVAC-Talk message boards and heating contractor sites intensely debate Lennox equipment in general:

  • Several posters suggest that Lennox is inferior to many brands, such as Trane, due to frequent problems with circuit boards, inducer blowers, and even motors.
  • Others state that Lennox is one of the better brands because problematic components were discarded years ago and new innovative equipment has since been introduced to improve their quality.
  • In another hvac-talk.com forum, a professional technician states that Lennox parts are cheaper than many others, yet others have complained that waiting for parts and Lennox technical support, whenever available, is problematic, causing inconvenience for customers.
  • Several people in another hvac-talk.com forum argue Lennox equipment requires Lennox technicians because they are most familiar with problems related to this brand.
