furnace comparison

There’s a lot to think about when you’re looking into getting a new furnace for your home.

One of the most important things to consider?

The history, value, and products offered by different brands, which can be found in a furnace comparison post – like this one!

Here, we’re offering you a complete furnace comparison of some of the top brands we work with, and the different furnaces we can install in your home!


The first name on our list of furnace comparison brands?

Goodman, which is now a member of the Daikin Group – AKA a Fortune 1000 company.

The company’s founding principles are still in practice today. Its goals are to keep your overhead low, give you high-quality products no matter which model you buy, and design furnaces that will last you a long time.

Let’s look at the two furnace comparison options of Goodman products we offer:

High-Energy Natural Gas

We offer 9 different Goodman furnace models, and many of the natural gas-powered options are our favorites.

The offer AFUE ratings of between 92-98%, depending on the model you buy. This means that between 92-98 cents out of every dollar you spend on operating costs go right to keeping your home warm!


If you live in a home without any natural gas, Goodman has got you covered.

You can have one of their propane models installed for excellent value and energy.


Next on our list of furnace comparison brands? Carrier furnaces, which are named for Willis Carrier, the man who invented air conditioning in 1902, are a trusted option.

Even better?

They’ve installed furnaces and air conditioning units in some of the most important places in the world, including the Sistine Chapel and the Great Library of Alexandria, Egypt!

So, we certainly trust their products enough to help you get them in your home.

Let’s check out some of the furnace comparison options we have, in terms of the specific models we offer, below:

American Standard

We may be a Canadian company, but we’re thrilled to be able to offer our customers American Standard furnaces, the next brand on our furnace comparison list.

They’ve been in business for over 100 years. In fact, they even worked with NASA to make sure that astronauts would be able to easily adjust to the air on the Earth after the Apollo mission.

So, we certainly trust their furnaces.

Let’s get deeper into our furnace comparison by outlining the three different series of American Standard Furnaces we offer. Check it out below:

The Platinum Series

First of all, we love that this furnace is quiet!

We love even more that it has an AFUE rating of over 97%, meaning that over 97 cents out of every dollar go to heating your home.

The Gold Series

If you want furnace options, this is the series for you. In fact, if offers 16 models you can choose from!

These models include features like multi-speed heating, a 96% AFUE, and best of all, they are Energy Star certified.

This means that they are highly energy efficient and that they help to lower greenhouse gas emission.

The Silver Series

These are the most affordable models of the American Standard furnace comparison options.

Even though it’s affordable, it still boasts an AFUE rating of 92-93%!


No furnace comparison list is complete without including the Amana brand.

In fact, they’ve been in the HVAC business for over 80 years.

They even introduced the first microwave to the consumer market – called the “Radarange.”

With a history like that, it’s no wonder their furnaces are so trusted and highly rated.

We love the fact that Amana also offers a 10-year Parts Warranty on their high-efficiency models.

So much so, that we added our own 1-year guarantee on our installation process to make it even better!

We sell three different types of Amana furnaces. Check out the Amana furnace comparison list below:

Entry High-Efficiency level AMSS92, ACSS92

These 2 models of gas furnaces are a perfect option for customers who want to lower their energy bills.

They have an AFUE rating of over 92%. This means that 92/100 cents on the dollars you spend on energy will go directly to heating your home!

High-Efficiency level AMVC96, ACVC96, ACSS96, AMEC96

These 4 models are probably Amana’s best-selling furnaces because their AFUE rating is over 96.

This means that they are a bit more expensive than the first models we mentioned, but ultimately, they will likely end up paying for themselves in savings.

Premium High-Efficiency level AMVM97, ACVM97

You probably guessed it! These 2 models have AFUE ratings between 97-98%!

This is one of the most efficient furnaces powered by natural gas on the market today.
