Better : Performance Series (96% AFUE)

Performance™ 96 Gas Furnace

Supported by the Performance Edge® thermostat and a multi–speed blower motor, this furnace will run in low stage up to 90% of the time. Longer, low–stage run times give you better energy efficiency, better temperature control and increased comfort. It also assures you quieter performance.

The multi–speed blower motor of this impressively energy–efficient furnace also works in conjunction with your air conditioning system to improve summer dehumidification.

™ technology which periodically stops the fan in "Constant ON" mode, gives cooling condensation time to drain away to prevent rehumidification. SmartEvap can reduce humidity by up to 10%.
