AFUE 96.7 The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency or AFUE rating is the percentage of fuel consumed that is converted to heat your home. A higher number is better.
estar Products with the ENERGY STAR® logo are qualified to earn the U.S. government's designation for superior energy efficiency to help save costs on energy bills.
hybridheat This product is compatible as part of a dual-fuel system that heats using an electric heat pump until the heating power of a gas or oil furnace is needed.
heats Heats your indoor environment, using natural gas, oil, propane or electric power.

Overview

Supported by the Performance Edge® thermostat and a variable-speed blower motor, this two stage 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.

Variable-speed blower operation also aids other system components and can help make your air conditioning system more efficient and improve summer dehumidification.

Additionally, SmartEvap technology gives cooling condensation time to drain away to prevent rehumidification. SmartEvap can reduce humidity by up to 10%.
