Some of the Best Gas Furnaces You Can Buy in Bishop

Innovative Dave Lennox Signature® Collection gas furnaces are some of the best you can find. Certain models are also some of the quietest systems available and offer efficient heating for your Inyo County area home.

Our two Dave Lennox Signature Collection gas furnaces include variable speed motors, which enable more comfort than traditional single speed furnaces. In a variable speed furnace, blower fans start up slowly and only operate at their highest speed when there’s an extreme demand for heat. These furnaces could save your family a substantial amount on your energy bills.
