American Standard Furnace Review

American Standard is one of the household appliance brands that you certainly do not need to think twice about buying. The company has been around, manufacturing heating products since the 19th century.

They have further expanded their trade. They have now ventured in to plumbing and kitchen fixtures among many others. But the pioneer in the heating industry is still making waves with their heating products.

They continue to deliver products that will definitely make your living a lot easier. It is definitely a must to have an American Standard furnace in your home.

You can be sure that an American Standard furnace is going to last you for a long time. It is going to save you a lot of money. Oh sure, it can be quite costly at first. However, the long-term savings that the furnace offers will definitely compensate for the expense in buying the furnace.

The efficiency of the furnace is a very impressive 95%! This ensures that you are cutting costs in energy and effort by at least half.

Other conventional furnaces would need for frequent maintenance work and refueling. But American Standard doesn’t want you to go through all that work. The furnace requires very little maintenance and uses only about half of the fuel that conventional furnaces use. That’s energy savings for you in physical and monetary terms.

Kudos goes to the company for using diagnostics in the furnace controls to allow easy troubleshooting of the furnace. They also have out in washable filters on the furnace and a lifetime warranty on heat exchangers. That definitely some value added to your furnace.

There’s nothing more you need in an American Standard furnace. The name should say it all. You don’t need to think twice. There’s a reason why American Standard is on top!

    I have owned an American Standard Freedom 95 condensing furnace since Dec. 28, 2010. It didn’t take me long to realize that I had purchased a natural gas HEAT PUMP. 105 degrees out of the register. What a joke!!! We told the salesman that we DID NOT WANT ANYTHING LIKE A HEAT PUMP. We’ve had to raise the thermostat 2 degrees, to 74 degrees and my wife is still not comfortable.

    I didn’t know anything about the drain. My drain froze during 2-4 degree temps. The furnace ran over 13 hours pumping 60 degree or less before I found it. The condensate line was not installed correctly and the water spewed out of the line on the circuit board and through my 5″ filter. The contractor replaced the filter, but not the circuit board. Acid water is what goes through my mind.

    I do like the two stage heating and the variable speed motor, but I hate the condensing furnace. I used as much or more natural gas this last month as I used last year with an 80% efficient furnace.

    I have R-60+ insulation in my attic.

    I am unhappy with what I spent good money on. I want a similar furnace without condensate.

    I live in Lubbock, Texas.

    Richard,
    This variable speed furnace is equipped with a “selectable” blower speed, in many cases if the inlet gas pressure is set correctly and the blower is adjusted the outlet temperature should be 50 to 60 degrees above inlet temp. This should result in the “warm” 120-125 degree vent temperature you are accustom to. The condensate issue is just that, the installing dealer needs to provision for freezing temps on the drain to ensure even in the event of sub-zero weather your drain does not stop. (may require running “heat tape” on drain or something to protect that area)

    We are looking to purchase an American Standard Freedom 95 Comfort-R variable speed (2 stage) furnace. There is an option to “upgrade” to the Ultimate model with Acculink communication…is the extra cost worth it? Has anyone experienced problems? Thanks.

    I suggest you stay away from American Standard. High costs to repair parts that go bad too quickly is a ticket to future financial headache.

    I had a fire in my three year old american standard….the electrical board has been replaced but I am afraid that whatever caused the first fire might happen again. The air conditioner/furnace were not in use…I was standing close enough to hear sparks immediately saw flames and smoke. I called 911 and then pulled the electrical plug. Heaven knows what would have happened if I wasn’t home or had gone to sleep. I want Ameican Standard to investigate or take some action,
