With single-stage, two-stage and modulating furnaces, Luxaire manufactures a large selection of energy-efficient home heating options. Models range from 80 to 97 percent AFUE and select units are Energy Star-qualified.
What are the 10 Best Furnaces?
With an AFUE of up to 98 percent, the Acclimate Series is advertised as providing precise, energy-efficient heating. Both models in this series operate with a modulating heat system designed to maintain a consistent temperature. A variable-speed blower also helps keep heating costs down and move air quietly throughout the home.
The Acclimate Series also features Luxaire's Geotrak technology, allowing installing technicians to customize the system's operating cycle to the homeowner's specific climate.
LX Gas Furnaces
The LX Series includes six models of furnaces that provide single-stage, modulating or two-stage heating. While modulating models allow for exact temperature control, single- and two-stage heating units use a fan motor or a variable-speed ECM fan motor for quiet home comfort.
Units range between 80 and 97 percent AFUE and include a tubular aluminized steel heat exchanger, with the option of adding external air filters to maximize indoor air quality.
Climasure Single-Stage Gas Furnace
At only 33 inches tall, the Climasure single-stage furnace is designed for easy installation in closets, attics, garages and other tight spaces throughout the home. This series offers two units, with 80 and up to 95.5 percent AFUE respectively. Both models advertise quiet, durable operation with a consistent speed motor blower and a pre-painted steel cabinet for maximum unit protection.
Care and Maintenance
Luxaire recommends service every other year for gas furnaces. However, homeowners are encouraged to perform regular filter cleanings and inspection of the unit's components, including the blower, thermostat and humidifier, to get the maximum performance from the unit.
Depending on the specific model purchased, Luxaire provides heat exchanger warranties ranging from 20 years to a lifetime. A 10-year limited warranty on all other parts is standard. Units must be registered online within 90 days of installation to receive the full warranties. The term reverts to a 5-year limited parts warranty if the unit is not registered within the given time frame.
