Overview of the Comfort 95
As a member of Carrier's base product line, the Comfort 95 is a single-stage gas furnace offering up to 95 percent AFUE. Units in this series operate with two heat exchangers—an aluminized steel primary and stainless steel secondary exchanger designed to increase efficiency and performance.
The Comfort 95 is promoted by the manufacturer for its quiet heating, due in part to a multi-speed PSC blower motor, sealed combustion system and an insulated cabinet. Additional features include a pilot-free hot surface ignition, fixed-speed blower motor and a fixed-speed inducer motor.
This series also can be installed with compatible electric heat pumps to be used as part of a dual-fuel system designed to automatically switch between gas and electric heating.

"95.5% Single Stage Multi-Speed 80.000"
I just purchased a new Carrier furnace. My old furnace was 75,000 BTU with a standard blower. I increase the size to a 80,000 BTU with a four-ton blower. What a difference that made I could be anymore happier, it heats the house in half the time of my old one. It's a model number 59SC5A080.

"Don't buy a Carrier"
Spent $6k on a new Carrier furnace and air conditioner. It's been a year and it still doesn't work properly. Have had 5 service calls so far. The Carrier units have not been properly tested for defects. The products are not ready for market and the consumer is left holding the bag. Never never purchase a Carier product.
Other Comfort 95 Reviews
Although the Comfort 95 is generally recommended across the web, several comments indicate that a two-stage unit is a better way for consumer’s in northern climates to spend their money. While contractors on forums such as gardenweb.com or hvac-talk.com don't have anything negative to say about the Comfort 95, many prefer a two-stage unit over the single-stage for long-term savings and increased home comfort.
However, review sites such webhvac.com support this series, stating the Comfort 95 is a good choice for homeowners seeking high efficiency at a low price point, adding that this system is suitable for long winters. Hvac-for-beginners.com also rates the Comfort Series highly, noting it is a good basic model. Both sites, however, mention Carrier's warranty is not as good as its competitors’.
