Arcoaire to American Standard 95%

Back in 1992 I was an Arcoaire dealer for about 3 months, I quickly left and became a York dealer for about the next 10 years. The Arcoaire furnaces where heavy, oddly sized and seemed to have a lot of “out of the box” issues. This particular furnace was starting to rack up some serious repair bills so it was time to be replaced.

My customer decided on the American Standard 95% Variable 2 Stage furnace, my favorite furnace to install and my top seller. Going from a 80% to a 95% she should see a reduced fuel bill as well as better comfort.

The American Standard is about 2.5″ deeper than the Arcoaire but width is about the same, fortunately the clearance to the front of the furnace was enough to close the door and keep mininum clearance.

New PVC Venting

The older furnace vented with regular venting, it was badly corroded to the point it would have had to be replaced if she decided to go back to a 80% furnace. The new PVC venting is almost the same size so venting the new American Standard furnace was very easy.

The PVC vent went directly outside through the exterior wall and up through their deck and then through the roof. A lot cleaner than the older corroded metal gas vent pipe.
