Trane manufactures oil and gas furnaces that are energy efficient. Four categories of furnaces are included in the Trane product line: XC Communicating, XV Two-Stage, XL Two-Stage, XT Single-Stage, XR Single-Stage, XB Single-Stage, and the Oil Furnace.
What are the 10 Best Furnaces?

A variable speed fan motor delivers a quiet and consistent flow of warm air for both the XC95m and the XC80, which is rated as up to 80% AFUE. With the advanced technology of ComfortLink II, these furnaces connect key components and automatically charge, as well as calibrate performance for optimal heating.
