Lennox Hearth Products Launches Rhapsody™ Direct-Vent Fireplace
Linear, energy-efficient design brings style and savings to modern homes
Nashville, TN—(January 13, 2012) With a best-in-class design featuring contemporary styling elements, the newly released Dave Lennox Signature® Collection Rhapsody™ direct-vent fireplace by Lennox Hearth Products (LHP) offers an energy-efficient, easy-to-install décor option for the modern home.
Available this spring, the Rhapsody Direct-Vent fireplace features a 54-inch-wide viewing area equipped with Lennox’ innovative Infini-Flame™ technology, which showcases a continuous band of tranquil flames. This breathtaking design is enhanced by a choice of two flame configurations, a porcelain interior that features optional illusion panels and backlighting and designer surround finishing choices in black, carbon and wood grain.
With an efficient burner design that far exceeds competitors at 70% AFUE, the Rhapsody provides more visible flame per BTU for added energy savings. Plus, the Lennox Total Comfort Control™ system features remote intelligent temperature control and switchable intermittent pilot control (ipi) technology so the Rhapsody will continue to operate in the event of a power failure.
Finally, with a lightweight design and adjustable nailing flanges, installing the Rhapsody is simple, with the versatility of true clean face installation for flush wall mounting.
“The Rhapsody gas fireplace positions LHP to take advantage of the quickly growing segment of the direct-vent contemporary style market,” said Michael Roark, product manager of fireplace systems for Lennox Hearth Products. “This new, best-in-class product, with superior burner design and flame presentation, will be sold through specialty retail chains and the custom home builder market, providing increased revenue and margin opportunities for both LHP and our dealers.”
To further customize the Rhapsody, additional accessories are available, including a media tray that offers various configurations, a blower kit and backlighting or accent lighting to add design interest even when the fireplace is not in use.
