Overview of the Echelon
The Coleman Echelon furnace series is available in four models. The mid-efficiency series is available in constant speed (8.M) and variable speed (8.C) models operating at 80 percent AFUE. In the high-efficiency, Energy Star-rated series, the constant speed (9.M) is available at 97 percent AFUE and the variable speed (9.C) model at up to 98 percent AFUE.
These furnaces use induced combustion, a hot surface ignition and aluminized tubular heat exchangers. As modulating furnaces, they fire at 1 percent increments for maximized indoor comfort. The variable speed models come with an optional ECM fan motor that circulates air for long periods of time to improve air filtration and maintain consistent temperatures throughout the home.

This is a good unit. The last one was 12 years old. A lot of the reviews here don't make sense. This gas furnace is the best. Really gets us toasty. If you don't know Coleman then you are from another planet. A lot of people don't realize it but all brands have bad reviews.

Other Echelon Reviews
While the Echelon series is promoted as being extremely quiet, consumers in online discussion forums complain about the operational noise. Several technicians replying to this concern on hvac-talk.com suggests that the noise is not from the unit itself, but from the air flow in the duct work. Addressing another noise complaint about the Echelon, a technician on askville.amazon.com explains that the furnace uses a blower system to burn the gas at utmost efficiency. According to this tech, this can lead to a high pitched whine that could be the cause of the complaint.
