ARBS you ready for better air - Virtual ARBS Issue2
Coming soon is the new Lennox standard of excellence. The Merit Series raises the bar for heating and cooling equipment. When it comes to efficient air inside the home – deliver more, deliver Merit.
Efficiency, Efficiency, Efficiency
At every turn the Lennox ML296 gas furnace is designed to be the most energy-efficiency furnace in its class. And with an energy rating of 96% AFUE*, the ML296 delivers by using two thirds less energy than competitive single speed units.
Sealed blower compartment
Silicon nitride Surelight® ignitor
Robust blower assembly
*AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, is a measure of how much usable heat is generated when natural gas is burned in the unit. The higher the AFUE, the more heat you’ll get from your natural gas, and the less gas you’ll have to use to stay warm.
Stay tuned for announcements on availability and speak to your Kirby representative if you would like further details.
Promising cleaner, fresher air while reducing energy use*, the Lennox® Healthy Climate® filters deliver superior whole home filtration.
The Carbon Clean 16’s MERV 16** Precision Pleat™ media filter protects from more than 95% of allergy-aggravating particles ranging in size down to 0.3 microns.
Carbon Clean 16 is available soon and compatible with both Lennox ML296 and ML180 furnaces.
*Based on in-duct testing that shows Healthy Climate® filters reduce air flow restriction. Greater restriction of air flow creates a greater load on a unit’s fan motor, increasing energy consumption.
** The MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating of a filter describes the size of the holes in the filter that allow air to pass through. The higher the MERV rating (categories range from 1 to 16), the smaller the holes in the filter, and the better the filtration.

Kirby I.T. System Interruptions May 2020 - Update
To our valued customers,
As has been seen in recent times, there has been increased fraudulent activities targeting companies in our region. We regret to advise that the Kirby system interruption experienced on the 30th of April, 2020 was the result of a third party intrusion into the Kirby network.
This has had an immediate impact on our store operations and we subsequently disconnected and suspended our business systems and the connection to the affected environment.
Our ability to transact in store has had minimal interruption this week and all stores are now back online to assist you with your everyday and project requirements with normal order processing now resumed.
Our Smart Access platform will remain suspended whilst we restore all services ensuring that system security is paramount before we relaunch this online for customers.
We pass on our sincere apologies for this disruption and any inconvenience you may have experienced, and we will provide further updates as appropriate.
