West Columbia, SC -- Allied Air Enterprises announces the new 96G2E 96% AFUE Two-Stage Constant Torque Gas Furnace for higher efficiency and easy installation. Allied also announces a re-alignment of their single-stage constant torque 95% AFUE furnace models to 96%. The new Allied Air furnace and upgrades for the three brands can help enable customers to qualify for local rebates and incentives when requirements are 96% or higher.

“With the new 96% AFUE two-stage furnace, installers can have confidence in a unit with higher efficiency and energy savings for customers,” said Laura Manson, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Allied Air Enterprises. “It’s easy to install, maintain and service and features an attractive price point for enhanced comfort without having to jump all the way up to a variable speed model.”

The new high-efficiency gas furnace is ENERGY STAR® Certified and features a self-diagnosing control board for easy operation and servicing. The two-stage gas valve adjusts heat output to optimize comfort and efficiency, while the constant torque blower motor maintains consistent airflow and even temperatures with up to 1/3 less energy than a fixed-speed blower.

For easy installation, the compact 33-inch high unit features left or right side utility connections, removable floor base, rotatable draft inducer and pre-bent, pre-drilled duct flanges as well as up-flow to horizontal conversion with no modifications.

Other Features include:

  • 11k Btu/h per burner helps reduce heat strain vs. traditional models (20 – 25k) and helps ensure long-term reliability
  • Square-wall pressure switch tubes can reduce the chance for hose kinks and nuisance trips
  • 100% factory run-tested to help ensure reliable start-up and operation
  • Lifetime heat exchanger warranty†
  • 10-year limited parts warranty†

† Timely registration required (except in California, Quebec, or any other jurisdiction where registration requirements to effectuate warranties are prohibited by law).
