Payne PG9 Furnace Overview

With eight models available, Payne’s PG9 Series offers a large selection of condensing gas furnaces in a variety of efficiency ratings, features and configurations. Units range from 90 to 96 percent AFUE, but all meet Energy Star standards.

The highest tier models in this series, the PG96VAT and PG95VAT, offer up to 96 percent AFUE and provide two-stage heating, which allows the furnace to consistently operate on a low energy output until there is a drastic change in temperature. These models also reportedly provide efficient heat transfer due to a secondary heat exchanger and variable-speed motor.

The PG9 Series offers three models of 95 percent AFUE furnaces, as well as two 92-percent and one 90-percent AFUE furnaces. These models provide single-stage heating. Several are available in upflow, downflow and horizontal configurations. A variable-speed fan, electronic-controlled blower motor, and tight-fitting doors to reduce air leakage are additional features of these units.

Payne Furnace Reviews

Showing 6-6 of 6 reviews

"A great value"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have never owned a Payne hot air unit, but I have installed hundreds of them over the last 12 years. Mid efficiency pg8 (80% chimney models) & high efficiency pg9 (92% plastic vent models) are normally trouble free when installed correctly. They need normal maintenance & occasional repair. If you are having chronic problems with either of these type of units, I can tell you that your installer most likely has done the installation incorrectly.

Other PG9 Reviews

Payne receives mixed reviews on HVAC forums and review sites around the web. While several contractors on hvac-talk.com believe this series will perform “just fine” with proper installation, others don’t like the way these units are constructed.

These professionals note that they receive frequent service calls for Paynes and see a tendency for the secondary heat exchanger to fail if they are not cleaned properly. One professional on this site also says that these units can be difficult to service. Similarly, hvac-for-beginners.com makes mention of the good warranty Payne offers, but rates both the higher and lower-tier PG9 systems very poorly, stating that the units have a low-quality heat exchanger.
