The Comfort furnaces can be purchased with a Super S heat exchanger. Known for both reliability and durability, the Base model gas furnaces are also produced with a Super S or aluminized steel heat exchanger and the Comfort Fan that is included in the other lines of Carrier. Various features are listed in the form of a chart on the company website to compare the entire selection of gas furnaces side by side.
Carrier Oil Furnaces

Ranging from rates of 77,000 to 154,000 British Thermal Units per Hour (BTUH), the oil furnaces are equipped with a Flue Silencer Baffle for sound reduction. In addition, multipoise models are available for every line of Carrier oil furnace, along with units that are lower in height and require extra space on the floor.
