Tempstar offers a large selection of gas and oil furnaces designed for improved air quality and increased energy efficiency. Ranging from 80% to 95% Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency or AFUE, consumers can choose from base-level, standard, mid-level, or top-of-the-line furnaces.
What are the 10 Best Furnaces?
Tempstar Two-Stage Variable Speed Gas Furnaces
Tempstar manufactures several models of two-stage, variable speed gas furnaces varying from 80% to 95% AFUE. This series reduces energy usage by consistently functioning on low heat until it detects a change in the outdoor temperature. These units are also equipped with a variable speed motor and high efficiency fan to improve air quality throughout the home.
Tempstar SmartComfort DLX Gas Furnaces
The SmartComfort DLX series features quiet, high efficiency furnace units. Available in 80% to 95% AFUE, these models use several key components, including the RPJ III primary heater exchange, a multispeed circulation blower, and induced draft blower for efficient fuel use. In addition, the cabinet features a thermally lined, insulated cabinet for quiet operation.
Tempstar PS Entry Level Gas Furnaces
For a more basic option to energy efficient heating, Tempstar offers a series of entry level furnaces. Units range from 80% to 92% AFUE and advertise quiet and reliable operation with a multispeed PSC circulation blower and an induced draft combustion blower. With a smaller, compact size, many of these models are ideal for tight spaces and offer easy installation.
Tempstar High-Efficiency and Variable Speed Oil Furnaces
Homeowners can customize their Tempstar high-efficiency oil furnaces by selecting the burners for the unit during installation. These high-efficiency models also feature a variable speed EMC motor to reduce noise and allow for higher quality air flow throughout the home. Easy maintenance, pre-wiring for add-ons, and an accessible control panel are added benefits of these units.
Tempstar Performance Series Oil Furnace
Consumers looking for easy installation, maintenance, and use might consider Tempstar’s Performance Series. This line features a large external front for simple care and maintenance, an easily accessible control panel, and factory installed sight glass for quick set-up and service. Additional features of the Performance Series include a patented ceramic combustion chamber and multiple direct drive motor blowers for quiet and efficient operation.
Care and Maintenance
While homeowners can perform basic cleaning and maintenance, Tempstar requires annual maintenance by a qualified service technician to keep the unit’s warranty valid. Consumers can find an independent heating and cooling contractor in their area by visiting Tempstar’s website and using the “finder a dealer” function.
Consumers are eligible for a 10 year, limited parts warranty if the furnace is registered within 90 days of installation. If the unit goes unregistered within the allotted time period, the warranty term will automatically decrease to 5 years. Tempstar furnaces are also equipped with a 20-year or unlimited warranty on heat exchangers depending on the product purchased.
Extended coverage of major components is available through the No Hassle Replacement plan. Coverage length varies upon purchase.
