gas furnaceHeil® QuietComfort® 96 percent plus AFUE gas furnaces feature models with stainless steel primary and secondary heat exchangers. According to the manufacturer, it designed the new line of gas furnaces after conducting focus groups with dealers across the country. The furnaces are available in four product families: QuietComfort VC 97, QuietComfort VT 96, QuietComfort IIX 96, and QuietComfort DLX 96. The new line features a simple but reliable gas valve, a Rigid Press Joint (RPJ®) heat exchanger, and dependable silicon nitride hot surface ignitors. VC 97 and VT 96 models are built with stainless steel primary and secondary heat exchangers. The units stand only 35 inches tall. Mainline 80 MBtuh models are only 17.5 inches wide, and the 100 MBtuh models — with up to 5 tons of cooling airflow — are only 21 inches wide. The gas furnaces weigh less than their counterparts in the previous 90 percent plus furnace line, and cabinet edges are hemmed to give installers safer and easier handholds for lifting the furnaces, the company says. The furnaces feature large, one-quarter turn knobs for door installation and removal. The newly designed sight glass coupled with a super-bright LED makes diagnostic flash codes easier to read in the event the unit requires service. They are designed for four-way multiposition installation, with at least 12 different venting options to meet the needs of virtually any installation.
