Arcoaire VC 97 Furnace Overview

The Arcoaire VC 97 is a discontinued variable-speed modulating gas furnace with an efficiency rating of up to 97%. It was Energy Star qualified and featured the Observer communicating system, offering a color touchscreen wall control and allowing system components to communicate for optimal efficiency and comfort. An RPJ stainless steel heat exchanger provided increased heat transfer, and a direct hot surface igniter increased efficiency and reliability. A pre-painted steel insulated cabinet, an isolated blower motor enclosure and soft mount rubber component gaskets helped provide low operating sound levels.
