Armstrong Gas Furnace Prices, Reviews and Buyer’s Guide

Note: Before you dive into the specific brand review, we highly recommend you to read our elaborate Gas Furnace Buying Guide in advance, there are several crucial steps you need to take before you even start to think about the brand.

You may not have heard Armstrong but it is famous to dealers and contractors in the HVAC technologies. It’s quite efficient due to its features, and the prices are also consumer friendly as there is not so much advertising for this brand. Actually, Armstrong and Lennox are from the same company and share partial same parts. Lennox is top 3 famous brand in the gas furnace industry but it is overpriced. From the price-value perspective, Choosing Armstrong is a good idea.

Features

Two-stage heating

This is a common feature in the furnace industry. It is made possible by the anti-vibration fan assembly. It has variable-speed motors and multi-stage performance which start slow and move up to full speed only when the combustion air is completely hot. Also, with the two-stage central air conditioner being the part of the system, the variable-speed motor allows the removal of much humidity from the air that is being circulated and thus making the home more comfortable when the temperatures are extremely high. Also, the two-stage model of the Armstrong gas furnace is more efficient compared to a single-stage furnace, so the gas bills are low. They also cost less.

Heat modulator

Armstrong gas furnaces have the modulating heat future which offers the best climate control such as unbalanced temperatures. It also controls dehumidification during the cooling cycles by use of the variable speed motors.

cStainless steel made

Armstrong gas furnaces are made of stainless steel heat exchangers which work with a broad range of pH thus reducing maintenance costs. Stainless steel heat exchangers do not wear out quickly. It is durable and less vulnerable.

Electric control system

Armstrong gas furnaces have an electrical control system that helps in controlling all functions of the furnace with a digital accuracy and efficiency. Armstrong gas furnaces also have inbuilt troubleshooting devices which ensure that your system is running the way it is supposed to.

Model A97MV is the high end of all the product line with all the bells and whistles. We advise homeowners not forget to buy extended labor warranty when considering highest-end models. In most cases, the labor fee for high-end series will skyrocket.

A962V and A952V are our recommended models with two stage gas heating and variable speed blower. Both are practical without any bells and whistles. If you didn’t have enough budget or plan to move house in the future, A951E and A951S are good temporary options. We didn’t recommend any kind of 80% AFUE gas furnaces (like A801E and A801A) no matter what features it has. Extra 15%-20% heating loss is huge which will add up your gas bill.

Contractor Reviews Quote

Armstrong gas furnace is available in the online market, and all you have to do is to make an order of the same and then have a contractor install it. Some consumers are also buying them directly from contractors. Most service calls on Armstrong gas furnace are due to human error on poor maintenance and poor installation of the furnace.

$2,589 A97MV Milan, IN 3200 sqft
I Installed my Armstrong Ultra Series in November 2003. It works well each day from the day I got it installed. It is quite useful, and it always heats the house to desired temperatures during the very cold days and cools to the needed temperature during the scorching days of summer. The unit has not had any repairs all these years, and the fan runs throughout filtering and circulating the air. I could not imagine any better system, and I would highly recommend this model to anyone who wants a top notch gas furnace although the price is a little bit too high.
$2,469 A962V Renton, WA 2900 sqft
I purchased this gas furnace model about four years ago for my old uncle, and then he is yet to have any problems with this furnace model. We all know the Ultra series is quite expensive but according to my experience, the quality is worth the high price. Most expensive products tend to be of high quality and also last longer. I would buy this product again and also I would, without a doubt, recommend it to anyone. My parents and my friends have often used the Armstrong products which made me try them, and I hope that I will get value for my money as well.
$2,999 VARIABLE SPEED BLOWER Model Saint Augustine, FL 2500 sqft
After six years of owning this unit, I have had only two repairs, and I can frankly tell that it works efficiently just as it is supposed to do. Additionally, after doing the two repairs, I have experienced tremendous energy savings as my power and gas bills have gone down with clear margins. I would recommend any person to buy Armstrong and get the best value for your money. The key to having your gas furnace to last long enough is to have a good installer, most likely the contractor or a technician with enough experience on installation. The poor installation will make the system fail even after a few months, and then you will blame the manufacturer which is not fair at all.
$2,150 A951A Knoxville, TN 2600 sqft
I recently purchased my Armstrong premium series at a very friendly price of just $1,959 after my old furnace broke down for the twentieth time!.This new gas furnace is much soundless and warms the house evenly and faster, and I have not had any breakdowns which are a relief given my previous experience with my old furnace. The lifetime limited warranty of the heat exchanger and a ten-year parts warranty is a bonus. My energy consumption has reduced same as my utility bills. I will recommend this to any person who wants a durable gas furnace at a low price.
$2,570 A962E Carrollton 2300 sqft
I do believe that most issues experienced by Armstrong users arise due to poor installation of their gas furnaces. The installing technician should have a good understanding of the machines parts and also their functionality. This reduces the chances of future malfunctions which may arise due to poor installation. Otherwise, my Armstrong standard series has never had any issues during the period I have owned it.
