Bryant Heating and Cooling: 95 Percent AFUE Gas Furnace

January 29, 2007

The Plus 95i™ variable-speed gas furnace has an AFUE rating of 95 percent. It can run on either natural gas or propane. The furnace meets Energy Star® energy-efficiency guidelines and qualifies for a federal government tax credit. The Perfect Heat™ function automatically monitors changing conditions and adjusts system operation to provide the best combination of comfort and energy efficiency, said the company. According to the manufacturer, the Perfect Humidity™ function enhances comfort by removing up to 128 percent more moisture from the air than standard comfort systems during cooling operation. By combining the furnace with an Evolution™ heat pump and an Evolution control, the Plus 95i creates a complete Hybrid Heat™ system, choosing between electricity and gas for the heating fuel, depending on which is more efficient, based on weather conditions and energy costs in the area.
