The Amana AMS8 is a single-stage multi-speed gas furnace with an efficiency rating of 80% AFUE. It is designed for multi-position installation — upflow, horizontal left or right — and features a stainless steel tubular primary heat exchanger for optimal durability and heat transfer. The AMS8’s multi-speed blower motor improves efficiency and provides steady temperatures, and a self-diagnostic control board continuously monitors the system and features LED lights for easy troubleshooting. The unit’s heavy-gauge steel cabinet has a baked enamel finish and is fully insulated to prevent heat loss while reducing operating noise.
Sounds like a jet is taking off in the house. Avoid these Amana gas furnaces! You’ll never get another full night of sleep in the winter if you purchase one of these. Ugh
"Piece of crap"
A reputable Albuquerque firm sold me this 80% efficiency furnace in Oct. 2005. Jan. 2010, just after 5-yr. warranty expired on parts other than heat exchanger, no heat. Same firm called it a lemon & tried to sell me another new furnace. I boycotted them, but have had problems almost every year. No heat is no fun. Sometimes, if unplugged for a while, it will reset & work again. Bad mother board or something, but I will never buy Amana again. Bad furnace!
