Lennox uses art to showcase efficiency, intelligence and quiet

Disclaimer: This post is part of a campaign with Lennox and Sverve. All opinions are my own

Remember a couple of months ago when my furnace died? I know I certainly won’t ever forget that. It was the dead of winter and I was stuck at home in the cold with 3 small kids to keep warm while we waiting for a technician to come fix our furnace and get us back in the warm.

It was not a fun day but it certainly was an eye-opener to how important it is to have functional heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Here in the Canadian prairies, we are subject to extreme cold and extreme heat so our HVAC system is pretty critical to keep us comfortable and safe. It’s also something that we were taking for granted up until that moment when we woke up to a very cold house.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t tend to think twice about heating and air conditioning. After all, the machines are tucked away and function at the flip of a switch on a panel on the wall. The level of comfort they provide us is immeasurable and often unnoticed until that luxury is taken away.

Lennox has decided to bring HVAC to the forefront in a new campaign that’s both innovative and extremely cool. Marrying art and HVAC may seem to be an odd couple but when you look at the creations by these artists, I think you’ll glean a new appreciation for the thought behind the movement.

Lennox makes the Ultimate Comfort System™. It’s the most advanced, most efficient, most capable heating and air-conditioning
system (HVAC) ever created. It’s a triumph of Lennox innovation, comprised of the most advanced technology Lennox has ever
assembled into one system. It’s the system against which every other will be measured. One that redefines precision, consistency
and comfort.

You want Smart?
Lennox iComfort Wifi technology allows you to control your HVAC system remotely from your phone whether you’re in bed or at the airport. Your beautiful windows just sit there.

You want Quiet?
While bigger and more powerful than your dishwasher, Lennox HVAC with SilentComfort™ technology is just as quiet, so you can peacefully enjoy your home.

You want Comfort?
Of course you do, that’s why you have an HVAC system. But a Lennox HVAC system allows you to precisely control the temperature and humidity in every room in your house and eliminate impurities in the air. Your fancy stove needs that kind of technology.

You want efficient?
Nothing is more important to reducing utility bills and environmental impact than your HVAC system. Lennox offers the most energy-efficient system in the world. That tankless hot water heater doesn’t compare.

You want to help the environment? A front-loading washer/dryer will not save the planet. Lennox SunSource is the only HVAC
system that can be powered directly by solar panels to reduce bills and environmental impact.

The Dragon was created by muralists Zek and Fluke of A’Shop, an artist-run production company specializing in graffiti murals, street art and urban aesthetics headquartered in Montreal, Canada and The Vault was designed by John Pugh. An American artist known for creating large trompe l’oeil wall murals giving the illusion of a three-dimensional scene behind the wall. Pugh has been creating his murals since the late 1970s. To say the work is stunning is an understatement. It’s absolutely breath-taking how they’ve created these images that look like they could jump off the wall. Amazing.

Overall, the Lennox HVAC system is the best you can buy. It’s the most energy efficient, the quietest and the smartest. I think this campaign is awesome on so many levels, both as a home-owner who wants to be comfortable and have a reliable HVAC system but also have a system that’s quiet and efficient so I can have peace of mind without a headache from the noise ;)

8 years…

I gotta say, I don’t often talk about my hubby. You won’t see pictures of him here or me ever mention him by name. I actually am not a fan of the word “hubby” but I’m just too lazy to write “other half” and “husband” seems so formal and if you know me, I’m anything…

Finding Grace in my Parent Fails

As parents, we have moments where we can’t help but pat ourselves on the back for a job well done (what’s that? you ate the dinner that I didn’t burn, without complaint or bribery??? Score). Aaaaaand there are those moments where parent-fail doesn’t even scratch the surface. I’m talking about more than burnt dinners (check),…

Adjusting my Focus Upward

How is it only Wednesday?! Seriously…I feel as though I’ve lived a week in only a few short (yet long) days. This has been one of the most exhausting weeks I’ve had in a long time. Physically and emotionally. And I couldn’t be happier for it. Without going into specifics, there is a lot going…

My 2015 Focus Words-being Intentionally Thankful

As always, I’m a little late to the party but I assure you, there’s good reason. I started thinking about focus words back in December and couldn’t settle on one and figured I just wouldn’t pick something for this year and instead, continue on with last year’s focus word of “Simplicity” and build off the…

Releasing my Restless Heart

In a continual effort to make every moment count, to slow down, and to place a higher value on myself and my need to do less in order to do better, one of the things I’ve really wanted to focus on is my time with God. My prayer life hasn’t always been great (you know…

2015: my year of Non-Goals

I’ve been thinking a lot about goals for 2015. Sleepless nights do that to a brain. I don’t know about you, but my feed has been full of resolutions, goals and amazing things so many of you are setting out to do this coming year. Normally, I’m right in there with a clear direction of…

Learning the meaning of Stillness

Normally, this would be a time when I’d be busy planning out my 2015 goals. Which races I’d be running, which events I’d be hoping to PR in or simply how I planned to structure my time. Truth be told, I’ve done none of that. I’ve registered for one race in May and haven’t even…
