SmartComfort IIX 96 Furnace
Tempstar® SmartComfort® IIX 96 Two-Stage Gas Furnace
Eliminate Temperature Swings
Wonder why a typical furnace turns on and off frequently, creating noticeable temperature swings? It could be caused by the rapid heat-up and shutdown cycle of a single-stage heating system. With a two-stage system, the furnace automatically adjusts to the temperature—normally operating at a quieter, primary stage and adjusting to full capacity to boost heat when temperatures drop. An integrated control system adjusts the flow of gas and the speed of the blower motor to each stage. When matched with select Tempstar® air conditioners and evaporator coils, the furnace’s ECM blower motor can also increase cooling efficiency, boosting your system’s SEER rating. Tempstar furnaces include a number of features in every unit that ensure minimal operating noise, including a sturdy steel cabinet that is thermal lined and insulated, a sealed blower compartment and soft-mount components.
Tempstar units are backed by exceptional warranties, including our No Hassle Replacement™ limited warranty, which gives the original purchaser a replacement unit if the heat exchanger should fail due to defect within the first five years. Upon timely registration, you also get a 10 year parts limited warranty and a lifetime limited warranty on the heat exchanger.
The heart of every furnace is the heat exchanger. The proven RPJ® (Rigid Press Joint) heat exchanger is designed to move more heat to the outside surface for increased heat transfer. The weld-free interlocking clamshell design reduces cracking or separating over the life of the gas furnace. The RPJ heat exchanger plays a significant role in boosting this model’s efficiency to a 96% AFUE rating. So you can count on energy savings, especially compared to an older, less efficient furnace.
Higher AFUE Equals Greater Energy Savings
