 Allied Air Enterprises Introduces 97% AFUE

West Columbia, SC -- Allied Air Enterprises announces the new A972E and A972V Two-Stage Constant Torque & Variable Speed Gas Furnaces with 97% AFUE Efficiency under the Armstrong Air® and AirEase® brands. Built on the same proven platform dealers and distributors trust across North American, the new furnaces meet the efficiency qualifications for $600 in tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act.*

The IRA was signed into law in 2022 and is a 10-year program.  The 25C tax credit program was updated with enhanced efficiency requirements to qualify for tax credits.  Dealers, in order to adequately serve their customers, need a wide range of products that can meet the updated efficiency requirements, not just the most premium models.

“The Armstrong Air and AirEase A972E and A972V Gas Furnace meets the need for an affordable and easy to install unit that utilizes the latest technology to provide quiet operation, efficiency, and comfort,” said Angela Chapoy, General Manager Allied Air Enterprises. “We are committed to sustainability and more efficient solutions for consumers that allow homeowners to take advantage of incentives that will be in place until 2032.”

Features of the A972V Gas Furnace include:

  • 97% AFUE Efficiency Rating -this means 97% of the fuel is converted into usable heat. Compared to an older furnace, this can potentially save customers hundreds of dollars per year in energy costs.
  • Two-Stage Heating- Instead of being “all on” or “all off,” the furnace can adjust its heat output based on conditions inside and outside the home, using less energy to maintain comfort.
  • Variable Speed Motor - By changing the speed of its airflow during start-up, the furnace can adjust humidity levels and create more even temperatures throughout a home, while enhancing efficiency and reducing operating noise.
  • Comfort Sync® A3 Enabled - When you pair this model with the Comfort Sync® A3 Thermostat, the system will continuously monitor internal components for optimum performance. Comfort Sync® puts you in total control of your home environment with remote temperature adjustment from anywhere in the world, even your couch, via smartphone app.
  • ENERGY STAR®Certified - The ENERGY STAR program is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.
  • EHX™ Technology -Every Armstrong Air furnace is engineered and built with Even Heat Exchange 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 exchange, enhancing efficiency and comfort.
  • 10-year limited warranty on parts and a limited lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger.
