WeatherKing 80-Series Gas Furnaces

WeatherKing furnaces with AFUE ratings of 80 percent are available for upflow applications with a horizontal option or for downflow applications. Many are equipped with a pressure regulator that can be modified for either natural or LP gas. For added comfort, accessory WeatherKing products, such as an electronic air cleaner or humidifier, can be added to the furnace via the integrated boards. Thermostats must be purchased separately. These compact units are designed for convenient and discrete installation with left and right side inlet connections.

Both upflow and downflow gas furnaces have direct spark ignitions, and direct-drive multi speed blowers are available. Downflow gas furnaces have corrosion-resistant heat exchangers made from stainless and aluminized steel and come with molded permanent filters. Their operational sound is minimized by the draft inducer motor, insulated blower compartment and slow-open gas valve housed behind a pre-painted galvanized steel cabinet.

WeatherKing 90-Series Gas Furnaces

Upflow and downflow/horizontal furnaces are available in this WeatherKing series. Able to be converted for either natural or LP gas function, these units have an AFUE of up to 92 percent and a gas efficiency of 90 percent. Accessory products can be connected to the integrated control board, which also has diagnostic capabilities. Thermostats must be purchased separately.

This higher efficiency series has a hot surface ignition and in-shot burners for air/gas mixture regulation. The textured galvanized steel cabinets and draft inducer reduce noise.

Care and Maintenance of WeatherKing Furnaces

It is recommended that homeowners contact an authorized dealer annually to have the furnace checked and cleaned.

Warranty

The ICECO division of Rheem previously held responsibility for providing part replacement if failure occurred under normal use within designated timeframes, although Rheem let lapse the ICECO trademark in 2011. WeatherKing gas heat exchangers typically come with a 20-year limited warranty. Residential installation of single-phase products comes with a 5-year limited warranty on all other parts. Homeowners should contact their installer or local dealer for complete and up-to-date warranty information.

"Terrible"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Every year since Ive had this furnace Ive had to call different heating companies trying to find someone to fix it correctly and no luck. They have replaced the limit switch a few times and cant remember why else. It is always something every single year for the last 11 yrs. I can't afford to just come up with a few thousand dollars to throw down every 10 yrs on a new furnace. And of course its out of warenty. Never will recommend Holt or this brand of furnace to anyone!!

"Do not buy a weatherking!"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I have had the unit in my house for several years. Every winter is a challenge to get heat. The installer blames me and wants to charge me several hundred dollars every time they show up. I have replaced the motor, which was making a bearing noise from day 1. Had to pay the installer to put a used unit from another unit, $250. Had water draining onto my floor, from the a/c condensation tube, which has now caused subfloor damage. Everything is always my fault; a coil is dirty, filter is dirty, ect. When will they say that I bought a piece of crap and I will take care of it for you. Never!!!

"Heating problems"

Somewhat Unsatisfied

The A/C part works fine. The furnace has problems. The pilot light glows and ignites the gas. When the pilot stops glowing, the gas burner goes off with it. Just blowing cold air. Is there something I can do, maybe clean a part? There are times when it works fine. Thanks!

This furnace was quite affordable, works well, has adequate blower power and heats well. It's an 80% unit. This was a replacement for an old timer that served well since 1976. This furnace is an improvement over the old model in most every aspect.
