This company introduced its 90 percent gas furnace line, which the company says provides energy efficiency and lower utility costs by up to 30 percent. The furnaces have an annual fuel-utilization efficiency rating up to 96.6 percent. The products also meet the Energy Star guidelines and come equipped with the PowerHeat SiN Igniter with a front-mounted assembly application for dealers. The hot surface igniter will ignite gas more efficiently, saving fuel that is normally wasted by a continuous pilot light, according to Carrier. The furnaces also have an S-shaped heat exchanger, which uses dual heat exchangers transferring up to 96.6 percent of all useable heat from furnace operation into the home.
