Overview of the AMS8
The Amana AMS8 is a single-stage multi-speed gas furnace with an efficiency rating of 80% AFUE. It is designed for multi-position installation -- upflow, horizontal left or right -- and features a stainless steel tubular primary heat exchanger for optimal durability and heat transfer. The AMS8's multi-speed blower motor improves efficiency and provides steady temperatures, and a self-diagnostic control board continuously monitors the system and features LED lights for easy troubleshooting. The unit's heavy-gauge steel cabinet has a baked enamel finish and is fully insulated to prevent heat loss while reducing operating noise.

"Piece of crap"
A reputable Albuquerque firm sold me this 80% efficiency furnace in Oct. 2005. Jan. 2010, just after 5-yr. warranty expired on parts other than heat exchanger, no heat. Same firm called it a lemon & tried to sell me another new furnace. I boycotted them, but have had problems almost every year. No heat is no fun. Sometimes, if unplugged for a while, it will reset & work again. Bad mother board or something, but I will never buy Amana again. Bad furnace!
