Overview of the CG95
The Ducane CG95 is a discontinued single-stage gas furnace. The CG95 was Energy Star rated, with an efficiency of 95.0% AFUE and a capacity of 40,000 to 100,000 BTU/hr. It was equipped with an ECM variable speed blower which provided quiet operation, and an aluminized steel heat exchanger was designed for increased durability. The steel cabinet with a baked-on finish added durability and increased safety.

I have read a lot of the negative reviews about Ducane. I feel compelled to reply because I install these furnaces. I have many units installed and have had very few problems. A few pressure switches have failed, and I find this in other brand name furnaces as well. If you are having problems with these furnaces look to the installer for the problem. Many of these guys do not take the time to properly install the unit, over or undersize the furnace, or are just inept. Warranty parts are never a problem at the wholesale level. Find a reputable company to install and service these units and you will most likely be satisfied.

I read these reviews and laugh. It truly is the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Bought a new Ducane, the pressure switch issue that most complain that Lennox was responsible for has been taken care of, installed by a licensed contractor. The warranty is as good as Carrier and Trane but the key is the installer. If the furnace is installed properly you will get many years out of it - 20 years on the heat exchanger, 10 years on parts. Be sure to register your furnace online to meet registration requirements. It's a great product. Like anything, it's only as good as the contractor that you hire to install it.

"Bad installs ruin the Ducane name"
Ducane has a bad name because of all the people who install furnaces wrong. They use the same parts as any furnace in the industry. Tell the truth, people - Ducane can run with the best.

"Be wary of any bad reviews"
These units are sometimes being installed by do-it-yourselfers, handymen, and others not qualified to install gas-fired equipment. Some are simply competing contractors writing bad reviews to make their equipment look better. Ducane furnaces are a product of Allied Industries, who also manufacture Air-Ease and Lennox. They are not a subsidiary of Trane company as some have indicated. Parts are easily obtained, whether for warranty or just repairs at a qualified distributor. These distributors will also take care of warranty claims. Having unqualified persons or do-it-yourselfers install these units will likely void the warranty. How can I say all of this? I am a recently retired HVAC contractor and vocational instructor. I have installed well over 200 of these units over the past years, and they perform very well when installed correctly and serviced regularly. Most serious service calls were due to improper installation by others, or poor or no regular maintenance (one landlord never changed the filter for 3 years!). If your contractor recommends a Ducane furnace, I am quite confident you will be very pleased with the quality and performance of these units. They are also very quiet, with most people surprised because their old furnace was so noisy. Whichever furnace you decide to install, please remember to perform the regular maintenance on the unit, and call in a professional if your unsure or unable to do it yourself.

I installed the gas furnace in a conversion from oil two years ago. Now with two heating seasons behind me it has worked flawlessly and I saved a bunch of money. I would suggest anyone to buy this unit.
Other CG95 Reviews
There are very few reviews of the Ducane CG95 on HVAC forums. One consumer on justanswer.com needed help installing a new thermostat on the unit. A consumer on hvac-talk.com asked for help deciding between the Ducane CG95 and similar Carrier and Luxaire furnaces, with no definitive answer.
The warranty for the Ducane CG95 is comprised of the following:
- 10-year warranty on parts
- Lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger
