The Freedom 95 Comfort-R variable-speed, modulating communicating furnace is one of the latest products from American Standard. The furnace is a fully modulating gas furnace. Rather than using a timed modulation valve, or on-again-off-again thermostat-controlled heating, the Freedom 95 uses temperature data from the 900 family thermostats to calculate its own heating cycle. It then adjusts the heat output with a fully modulating gas valve for even heating. The furnace is also Energy Star rated. It comes equipped with AccuLink, which enables the system to communicate its status and settings to the AccuLink comfort control, while also allowing optional remote monitoring and programming by phone. It also relays diagnostics to installers or servicers for responsive maintenance.
