The Amana AMVC8 is a two-stage, variable speed gas furnace with an efficiency of 80% AFUE. The AMVC8 is designed for an upflow or horizontal installation. A low-speed fan and a fully insulated, heavy-gauge steel cabinet provide increased efficiency and quiet operation. The unit features a patented MillionAir stainless steel tubular heat exchanger, a two stage gas valve and a SureStart silicon nitride igniter. A control board with self-diagnostics helps monitor furnace operation and functions. The AMVC8 is compatible with the ComfortNet Communicating System, which features advanced diagnostics, maintenance alerts, and remote system control and monitoring.
Best warranty, easy to install, awesome performance.

"Like the Warranty"
Like the warranty. Circuit board went out after 5 years and one month and was covered with the 10-year warranty. I live in city of 80000 and have to get parts from Denver, 10-hour drive round trip. Sucks no heat for a day or two and 10 degrees F.
"Amana Furnace AMVC8/ADVC8"
Purchased new Amana AC/Furnace Unit April 2011. Installed by Dayton. Called Atmos Gas to home Dec. 9 and they red-tagged furnace: “gasleak at central heat”. Called Atmos again Dec. 10 and report said “carbon monoxide hazard at central heat”. Atmos instructed me to air out home and helped open windows.I Left unit off for 48 hours. The following Monday Dec. 12 Atmos and Dayton techs arrived at my home at the same time and turned on furnace. This time Atmos found nothing. They left and I haven’t had it on since. I am afraid of it. One time the thermostat flashed “check furnace call for service.” Dayton billed me $225 for nuisance calls. I am 77 and if I knew how to fix it myself I would.
