The TM9 furnace is a member of the Luxaire mid-level product line, the LX Series. Units in the series have AFUE ratings up to 97 percent, and all stand at 33 inches high. The compact size of these units makes them suitable for installation in tight areas throughout the home.
With more than 20 models available, the TM9 series contains units with single-stage, two-stage, or modulating operation. Single-stage models feature a soft operating, air circulating fan motor, while two-stage models are equipped with a variable-speed ECM fan motor. Units with an ECM motor also feature Luxaire’s GeoTrak technology, a system designed to allow homeowners to adjust furnace settings to their specific climate.
All models feature an aluminized steel heat exchanger and external air filter, and are promoted for their quiet operation. Most models of the TM9 are Energy Star-approved.
This is the best furnace I’ve ever had in my home. It’s quiet and comfortable. The variable speed furnace blower keeps all my rooms at about the same temperature, unlike my old furnace. I’m saving on my electric and gas bills!

The first year, it worked fine. The second year it had problems, such as the furnace going on, then off, at short intervals for around an hour. During the hour, it was blowing lukewarm air. Then, after the hour, for maybe 15 minutes, it blew out non-heated air. Then it worked fine. This situation happened a few times during the winter. A few times during the winter, the furnace blew out non-heated air. I would turn it off, then on again, and It would go through the same process as above. I thought that there was a faint smell of gas outside of the furnace from the main pipes. I let things ride out until this year. The furnace was blowing out heated air. This year, I turned on the heat. There was heat for maybe 5 to 15 minutes, then only non-heated air. I opened the furnace panel and smelled gas inside the furnace. It was especially noticeable when I just shut off the furnace. I called the furnace repair company. Right away, he detected that the gas leak was from the main gas pipe that just sticks in the furnace. The output pipe blowing hot air to the ground, and then bouncing off the ground and being sucked back in by the input pipe to the furnace, was a possible problem. He cut off the curved part of the pipe so that the hot air blew away from the input pipe. So far, the furnace works fine. I have what looks like the TM9V Luxaire furnace. I don’t know the model #.
"Saved 25% during first year."
I had a Luxaire two-stage furnace installed with a two-stage heat pump and I saved over 25% in my first winter. Not only did I see the savings on propane, my house never felt more comfortable. I am so glad I listened to my contractor and upgraded to the two-stage units. Would recommend Luxaire products to anyone after the great experience!
"York 95.5%… Yeah Right"
This review site is crap, half of the reviews are from contractors/installers. What a load of BS. This is by far the biggest farce. If this unit was a horse, we’d have shot it by now. Two years old and time to call a lawyer, not a repairman.
I put 1 year because they did not have six months The installer was Johnny on the spot when it was time collect the money after that he refuses to come out to service the unit. This junk cost twice as much as my old oil furnace did this passed winter 2011-2012 The problem is that air flow is minimal. I called the distributor (IDbooth) they sent some guy out he spent ten minutes and left. I expected a call nope I had to call them. I spoke with the local manager who has never been in my house and his answer was your house in poor condition I hung up on him. Luxaire is a joke you can’t speak to technical services unless your an hvac company. Pro Mechanical of wny in Stafford, New York installed it took the money and ran
Although the TM9 has few reviews across the web, most reviews of Luxaire are positive. Homeowners on hvac-talk.com note these units' quiet operation, while contractors mention their quality performance. Contractors also praise the modulating model for offering seamless operation that does not require constant adjustment and heats effectively with minimal noise levels.
Furnace review sites such as webhvac.com and hvac-for-beginners.com also rate the Luxaire LX series well. A wide selection of premium and mid-tier units within the product line provides homeowners with a nice selection to choose the efficiency and home comfort suitable for their home. Good warranty support is another benefit mentioned for this unit.
Luxaire provides a lifetime limited warranty on the heat exchanger and a 10-year limited warranty for remaining parts for the TM9 furnace. All units must be registered within 90 days of installation to receive the full warranty terms.
