Maytag single-stage furnaces are available in 80-plus and 92-plus AFUE units. Just under 35 inches tall, the new low-profile units can be used in cramped quarters or to accommodate larger, high-SEER coils. They can be installed freestanding in a basement or enclosed in a closet. The 92-plus AFUE furnaces can be vented vertically or horizontally, using either a one- or two-pipe system, which adds to the overall installation flexibility. The diagnostic lights allow easy troubleshooting without having to count flashes. One light indicates flame signal strength, while two others work in combination to indicate all other fault codes. Other new features include high-static blowers on all models, a color-coded wire harness with quick-connect terminals, a sealed vestibule for quieter burner and inducer operation, and a two-piece door design with captured screws.
