Offering up to 95 percent AFUE, the H9MVX (also known as the VS 95) is a two-stage, high-efficiency gas furnace. Standing at 40 inches high with wide cabinets, this unit was designed for easy installation in upflow, downflow or horizontal installation configurations. Homeowners can choose from 1- or 2-pipe venting.
The H9MVX is equipped with a two-stage gas valve, two-speed induced draft blower assembly and variable-speed motor that creates heat quickly as the temperature changes. This model also is promoted for its quiet operation due in part to a mounted variable-speed circulator blower motor, thermal lined cabinet and insulated blower compartment.
Electronic controls monitor system operation for simple diagnostics. Additional features of this unit are a direct hot surface ignition, stainless steel RPJ® III primary heat exchanger and stainless steel secondary heat exchanger. The H9MVX is Energy Star-approved.
Installed last October. Has worked very well throughout the winter. Efficient and well priced. 2 stage heating saves money. Replaced old Trane Unit. Remember unit is only as good as the installation. Have been using the same Heating and a/c Company last 16 years.
Other H9MVX Reviews
Although the H9MVX is a member of Arcoaire�s top-tier product line, the VS series, reviews across the web are mild. Neither contractors nor homeowners tend to feel very strongly toward this unit. Several contractors on hvac-talk.com do recommend the H9MVX, but generally rate it the same as other brands owned by ICP, such as Comfortmaker. With quality installation and regular upkeep, they say, this unit should provide solid performance.
In contrast to the mild reviews, hvac-for-beginners.com recommends Arcoaire heating units, noting the company provides a very good warranty along with its “no hassle replacement” guarantee.
