Furnace Upgrade: Heil 90% to American Standard 95%

Low-end Furnaces Have Problems

I really don’t encounter to may many HEIL 90% gas furnaces in this area. This particular HEIL unit was having enough issues to cause my customer to be concerned. Just opening the doors, I could see that this unit was having the same issues the RHEEM units have with the internal drain connections dripping water down on the burners.

Another issue was noise. Most of these lower end pieces of equipment like HEIL, YORK and Coleman use the cabinet as the sealed combustion chamber. This cuts down on costs, but increases the noise level of the unit itself.

American Standard Furnaces – Built Better to Perform Better

American Standard uses an independent combustion chamber. This puts another wall of metal between the burners and the cabinet of the furnace, reducing the burner noise. And when noise is a factor this is a big deal.

As you can see above the American Standard 95% furnace slipped right in to place. The existing PVC vent, drain and gas connections where utilized. Once the unit was up and running my customer noticed a big reduction in noise. She feels confident that she will not have a furnace failure in the dead of winter.
