Two stages, more comfort.
Unlike single-stage furnaces—which often heat up fast and shut down fast, creating noticeable swings in temperature—the Comfortmaker® SoftSound® VT 96 delivers consistent heat and overall comfort. The two-stage heat system operates at the lower, primary heating stage most of the time and automatically adjusts to the higher, full-capacity stage if temperatures drop. The variable-speed blower motor can also help increase comfort by maximizing moisture removal during cooling (air conditioner) operation. And the high-efficiency blower motor can be run continuously to improve indoor air quality.
Enjoy quiet performance.
The sturdy steel cabinet is thermal-lined and insulated to reduce the amount of heat and operating noise that escapes. A sealed-blower compartment, soft-mount components, and variable-speed blower motor also reduce operating sounds. When matched with select Comfortmaker air conditioners and evaporator coils, the ECM variable-speed blower motor
can also boost cooling efficiency for increased SEER† rating.§
Warranties that work for you.
Comfortmaker units are backed by exceptional warranties, including our No Hassle Replacement™ limited warranty, which gives the original purchaser a replacement unit
if the stainless steel heat exchanger should fail due to defect within the first ten years. Upon timely registration, you also get a 10-year parts limited warranty and a lifetime
limited warranty on the heat exchanger.*
Steel your home against winter.
The heart of every furnace is the heat exchanger. The proven RPJ® (Rigid Press Joint) stainless steel heat exchanger is designed to move more heat to the outside surface for increased heat transfer. The weld-free interlocking clamshell design reduces cracking or separating over the life of the gas furnace. Stainless steel construction adds durability and resists corrosion. The RPJ heat exchanger plays a significant role in boosting this model’s efficiency to a 96% AFUE‡ rating. So you can count on energy savings, especially compared to an older, less-efficient furnace.
