Chairwoman Johnson Joins DOE Secretary Granholm to Congratulate Lennox International on First Next-Generation Heat Pump

(Dallas, TX) — Today, Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) joined Department of Energy Secretary Granholm for the announcement that American heat pump manufacturer Lennox International became the first manufacturer to make a next-generation heat pump that has passed laboratory performance testing for the Department of Energy’s Residential Cold Climate Heat Pump Challenge. These heat pumps will heat homes better and more efficiently than current technologies.

“As Chairwoman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology it is always incredible to see the innovation that comes out of partnerships between our science agencies and the private sector,” said Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) “As the consequences of the climate crisis continue to intensify, it is critical that we work together to develop effective, clean energy solutions. Congratulations to the entire Lennox team for this impressive achievement. This cutting-edge technology will be key in heating homes more efficiently and will help reduce building emissions. I often times refer to the Committee I Chair as the “Committee of the Future.” And it’s certainly exciting to see here today efforts that will help us achieve a clean energy future.”
