Overview of the AMVC95
The Amana AMVC 95 is a discontinued two-stage variable-speed gas furnace. The furnace featured a stainless steel heat exchanger and an AFUE rating of up to 96%. It could be synchronized to work with the Amana ComfortNet system that is used to keep a home comfortable year-round. The control board notified the owner when part of the equipment was malfunctioning.
The AMVC 95 came equipped with a two-speed blower for quieter operation. The furnace met the energy-saving requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency. Its full insulated cabinet came with a baked-enamel finish that resisted rust and corrosion. The AMVC 95 featured a silicon nitride igniter that was tested by pressing it through a piece of wood.

"Stay away from this furnace"
I have a 67 year old house and about 4 years ago replaced the old furnace that the house was built around. In the 20 years I lived with that furnace I replaced filters and once had the blower drive belt break. Since buying my Amana I have had 4 emergency service calls, all of which ended with no problem positively identified, because the problem is intermittent, but a large bill to pay. I have had to learn a lot more than I care to know about troubleshooting this piece of junk, and have replaced the hot surface igniter 3 times and the flame sensor once. Now it is acting up again, and it looks like maybe it is the gas valve this time. I am afraid to leave my house in winter for fear the pipes will freeze after the furnace fails again. I wish I could afford to throw it out and get a new furnace that is reliable. I will never buy another Amana though, and neither should you if you don't want to worry about a frozen house.

"Working great so far"
We moved into this apartment approximately eight months ago, right when the weather was starting to go from chilly to cold. We had a four month old baby; needless to say, keeping the place warm was a real priority. We looked at this apartment and we really liked it but it just wasn't quite warm enough. We told the landlord as much, and he said that he was about to replace the furnace, and that if we wanted we could help him to choose which furnace to buy. He gave us a couple of choices, and this Amana was one of them. We went through all of the specs and reviews and this seemed to be the best choice. It was installed right away, and what a difference it made. The place stayed wonderfully warm all winter. We even had to have a repairman come to look at the hot water heater once and he commented on how we had a great furnace. Obviously we haven't had it long, but so far we've had no problems at all. I can't tell you how nice it is to have an appliance that you can count on. Many thanks to our landlord, and to Amana.

"Furnace packs a punch"
Air flow in home is much better than our old furnace. Very quiet system. The comfort net thermostat is easy to use. I chose best Heating and Cooling. They installed the complete furnace and a/c system in one day. They knew what they were doing and were very professional and friendly. Spent $7400 received $2050 back from MidAmerican Energy.

"Keeping warm while saving money"
This furnace is not only cheaper to operate, it also is keeping my family more comfortable. The good folks at Kroll furnace did an excellent job installing the unit. I couldn't be happier.

The heating company convinced me that this was the best furnace I could possible get - well made, efficient, quiet and with the best warranty in the business. In the year and a half that I have had it I've already had more problems with it than I had with the 35 year old Lennox that it replaced. And big surprise, none of the problems were covered on their warranty. It is so loud that at night I have to turn the thermostat low enough to keep it from coming on or it wakes me up. It has saved me a substantial amount in gas but has cost me double what it saved in repairs. This is the worst investment I have ever made. I would never again buy any product made by Amana nor would I recommend any of their products to anyone.

We replaced an Amana system that was nearly 27 years old. I understand installation is the largest factor in how long a unit lasts but having a high quality piece of equipment doesn't hurt. The warranties are the best available and provide lots of piece of mind. a stainless steel heat exchanger with a lifetime unit replacement warranty... outstanding!

Just had my new 3 ton 95% efficient Amana installed yesterday. Compared to my 15 year old Goodman the noise upstairs is negligible. Woke up this morning and the cold spots that used to exist in the house (bedroom are on outside walls) are not noticeable any more. The new Amana puts out much more cubic feet of air than the old one. Ron the Furnace Man (Company business name) from Louisville, Ohio did excellent work and cleaned up after themselves.

I am very happy with my Amana furnace. It appears from these reviews that anyone having problems with their Amana furnace is having them due to the installation not the furnace itself. People need to learn that you get what you pay for and if you pick the cheapest installer that doesn't put a lot of detail in their quotes you get a poor installation and it doesn't matter the brand of furnace as much as the installer. I liked Amana because its manufactured in the USA and because Goodman Manufacturing (that makes Amana furnaces) only makes heating and a/c equipment unlike some other companies that make other products (Carrier makes airplane engines, Whirlpool, Frigidaire) and others make other appliances. I wanted a company that specialized in making heating equipment and that made it in the USA that's why I picked Amana and I am glad I did.

"My Amana Really Blows!!"
I had an Amana AMVC95 Furnace installed just a week ago. I chose the variable motor because the contractor said it would be quieter. My old furnace was about 31 years old. I can't say much since I just got the furnace, but what I noticed right away was the sound of the air flow. My old furnace must have had a much smaller blower. The contractor said that all new furnaces have larger blowers to work well with A/C. It's not terribly loud, just louder than my old furnace. I'll have to get used to it. The contractor was kind enough to install another cold air return duct. He also showed me that if you turn the grill covering the cold air return upside down, the air flow noise will be reduced. I do wish they still made a furnace with a smaller blower for those of us who don't have or want A/C. The Big Bad Wolf had a big blower too! Poor little pigs!

I had a 15 year old furnace replaced with an Amana 95% variable speed unit. The sales rep went on and on about how the quality was second to none and the warranty being the best in the industry. I will simplify, all I have had is problems with it and it is 5 times louder than my original. Overall, I should have went with the American Standard unit and saved myself a great deal of pain. It seems now that I need to just spend th extra money and have this nightmare renoved from my home. I strongly recommend buyers to stay away from Amana/Goodman products. Note:It comes down to the installation company to a certain extent, afterwards its all dependant upon the system and how it was made!!!

I bought a amvc95 95% 2-stage vari-speed furnace and ive found never have I been so comfortable. for the first time ever the thermostat does not move from 70*. plus my bills have never been lower. I put a asz14 heat pump with it. no service calls but if I did amana has a 10yr. parts and labor plus a lifetime unit replacement warranty. I believe the who put it in has every thing to do with it. maybe jon moon needs different installers. I love my amana......jj
