Mainline Series Gas Furnaces

The Mainline Series includes the bulk of Arcoaire’s product line. This series consists of gas furnaces holding 80, 96 and 97 percent AFUE ratings. All of these models feature insulated blower compartments, use a direct hot surface ignition system and offer dehumidification capabilities, and use either an EMC or PSC blower motor. Most models have two-stage heating and an aluminized steel heat exchanger.

The top-tier product reaches up to 97 percent AFUE, features modulating or two-stage operation with a variable-speed EMC blower motor, and includes Arcoaire’s Observer communication system to enable interaction between heating and cooling systems.

Performance Series Gas Furnaces

While Arcoaire entry level furnaces range in efficiency from 80 to 95 percent AFUE, they lack the “bells and whistles” of the higher-tier units. These models feature a direct hot surface ignition and RPJ heat exchanger for efficient heat transfer and increased air movement. A multi-speed PSC blower and induced draft combustion blower also contribute to performance.

Oil Furnaces

While only the top-tier oil furnace line features a variable-speed motor and uses an EMC blower motor, both the top- and mid-level products are equipped with a stainless steel heat exchanger and are Energy Star-approved. Arcoaire also offers five models of entry-level oil furnaces.

Care and Maintenance

Arcoaire outlines furnace care and maintenance in its owner’s manuals with easy-to-follow maintenance checklists. The checklist details components such as replacing air filters that should be serviced monthly, items such as inspecting external wiring that should be conducted semi-annually, and duties such as inspecting gas supply lines for leaks that should be performed on an annual basis. Arcoaire recommends regular service from a HVAC technician.

Arcoaire Warranties

Arcoaire furnaces are equipped with a standard 10-year limited parts warranty. Heat exchangers carry an additional warranty, varying between a 25-year or lifetime term depending on the model.

Arcoaire also offers a “no hassle replacement” limited warranty that covers major component failure. Coverage ranges from one year for baseline products to 10 years for top-tier lines. All products must be registered with Arcoaire within 90 days of installation to receive the full term.

"Lemon & Junk"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I installed two Arcoaire furnaces in my vacation home. They both have been continual problems since new. The larger one has burned out the same part 15 times. They both have been used very little, a few months each year. I would say stay away from these defective unreliable furnaces. Getting bids to replace them now! – Lee

"Very unhappy"

Had an Arcoaire forced air furnace for only 4 years. Heat exchanger failed causing major over flame, which melted my fresh air intake and control wires. When my contractor contacted the factory with all the info he was told they had no heat exchanger on hand. He then asked for a new furnace. The factory said you will have to wait 10 days. 10 days in freezing mn is too long. My contractor offered me a different brand of furnace, new for his cost of the furnace. We agreed it was the best solution in my case. My contractor is going to take the old furnace to the factory and show the defects and tell them how unhappy I am with this junk. Never again will I buy an Arcoaire furnace based on my experience.

Furnace is around 10 years old and have had multiple problems. We did not buy it, came with the house we bought. One, a shorted circuit from poor wiring. Two, fan failure $800 replace. Three, just now, the low pressure switch failed awaiting parts no heat for a week. Save yourself the agony and buy a higher quality furnace.

Had the furnace for 11 years. Failed in every one of the past 9 years (twice this year). Failures include major parts – logic board (3 times), condensate motor (twice), gas valve (twice). Looking now to replace, will not consider this brand.

"SUCKS… NOT GOOD"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Unit is also for a/c had it for over one year… Does not heat or cool our home at all. Have to have in summer one ceiling fan on in front room. My bedroom has a tower fan by the register to help cool and a tower fan in kitchen to help keep the thermostat at 78 degrees. Runs non stop for 10 – 15 hours at a time to keep the house comfortable. Power bill is outrageous. What is wrong with this unit?
