    The CleanAir is not only helpful to keep the system clean but also beneficial to the air in your house.

    Need full model numbers and sizing information (you want the system sized correctly) to give you the best advice. Which companies did a Manual J load calculation? Which inspected the system as a whole, including ductwork?

    A good single-stage system sized right with a variable-speed blower is a good setup to have.

The Lennox guy recommened the clean air system for $xxx as well. I think this was like buying underbody protection on a car. Not necessary. Thanks
    Yes, we all are in agreement that the variable speed air handler is a worthwhile investment. Being in Virginia, a variable speed indoor blower can be set up for great dehumidification during the cooling season.

    Staged systems are only a benefit for comfort factors and never for efficiency advantage.

    I am not familiar with the Lennox clean air system other then Lennox's embarrasing advertizements with the "unusually" dressed men portraying allergin, dirt etc. (pretty unsettling to look at if you ask me). That said, it is always a good idea to have Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) products installed according to your needs. I myself would prefer an independently driven HEPA filter if someone in your family has allergies. This type of filtration system cannot impair the air flow of your system as other types of filtration systems can, but is quite expensive.

    The variable speed blower also enhances filtration by operating at a lowered speed during times when cooling or heating is not being called for.

    I too agree with what was posted here. Except the part about the unusaually dressed men protraying allergin, dirt, etc. I have no idea what he's talking about. But I'm sure I can disagree with him on this point.

    From what I have heard from my Nordyne source it's coming soon, like this year,
    so I am guess it will be within the next 11 months.

    Despite our conflicts milky, I'm pretty sure you won't be disagreeing with me that these Lennox bad air guys are a little unnerving to manly men; [
