The PG furnace from Janitrol is a discontinued series dating to the 1990s. These low-efficiency, gas-fired units featured AFUE ratings of up to 78 percent. Units are manufactured for rooftop installation.
Replacement parts for this furnace series can still be found online. Evidence indicates that this furnace series also was marketed under the GMC and Kenmore brand names.
In 1995 replaced my furnace with a Janitrol Goodman as price was good, told by the installer “Janitrol” has been the name in commercial heating for years! Well, within a couple years was shutting down after furnace fired – ignitor or flame sensor bad. Continued having problems about every year after that, people I sold home to replaced it (Was only 10 years old!!!) Funny part is, brother has a duplex he put two of these in about the same time…both junk as were fine for first 1-3 years and problems on both ever since!!!
