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.

Very Unsatisfied

My g61mpv gas furnace is not 3 years old yet. this winter it has not worked more than it has. I have had the computer motherboard replaced but it still only works sometimes and doesn’t put out heat properly. it is a total frustration to me as I am retired on a fixed income. what can be done to get lennox to stand behind their poorly manufactured furnaces?

Well I finally replaced my Pulse 21 furnace with a Lennox g61v and could not be happier. This furnace makes our home way more comfortable and is very quiet. No more cold spots. Two Stage ecm is definitely the way to go. I was thinking about going with the Lennox g71p but was advised against it because it was a newer model furnace. The g61v has been out for some time and is reliable based on the reports I have read. I considered the Trane xv95 as well but opted for the g61v after hearing how quiet it was.

We installed a new g61mpv36c-090 this year and so far it has been fabulous. Compared with the old furnace it’s extremely quiet and uses half of the fuel. We really like the new thermostat as well which is much easier to program than the old one.

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.
