West Columbia, SC -- Allied Air Enterprises announces the new A961E Single-Stage Gas Furnace for higher efficiency with single-stage value. This represents an upgrade of the 95% AFUE furnace to 96%, giving our independent distributors and the dealers they serve a best-better-good selling story at 96% AFUE. The higher efficiency single-stage constant torque gas furnace could enable homeowners to qualify for local rebates and incentives when requirements are 96% or higher.

“The upgraded gas furnace will ensure higher efficiency and economical warmth for customers,” said Laura Manson, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Allied Air Enterprises. “It’s the perfect entry point to 96% AFUE for distributors to add to their offerings.”

The A961E gas furnace is ENERGY STAR Certified and features a self-diagnosing control board for easy operation and servicing.

Features include:

  • Advanced Heat Exchanger: Made from stainless steel for maximum strength, our heat exchangers are highly resistant to thermal fatigue and other stresses caused by repeated heating and cooling. During the testing process, they are subjected to temperatures that far exceed normal operating ranges, to ensure they will stand up to decades of use.
  • EHX™ Technology: Each furnace is engineered and built with EHX™ Technology, a patented design that eliminates the hot spots that can shorten furnace life. EHX Technology makes heat exchangers more durable, and with its advanced airflow system, more air contacts the heat exchanger surface area for greater heat transfer into the home, enhancing reliability and comfort.
  • Quiet Combustion™ Technology: Uses a lower Btu input per burner (11k Btuh vs. traditional 20 – 25k Btuh) while optimized burner spacing and larger carryover channels ensure quieter start-up and operation.

Inside every single stage constant torque gas furnace, you’ll find a high level of technology and craftsmanship, backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty on the heat exchanger.*
