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. Here is the quick navigation for this article:

Armstrong’s 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.

EXH Technology (exclusive feature)

Patented technology that eliminates hot spots in the combustion chamber and heat exchangers that can weaken the metal over time and cause mechanical failures

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.

When you’re looking for the most cost-effective model, the strategy is to find the balance between furnace cost and energy costs. Let’s use the zone map to identify efficiency levels for each that strike that balance:

Suggested AFUE
Cost-effective Models
Zones 1 & 2 (hot) 80%
Zone 3 (warm) 80%
Zone 4 (moderate) 90%
A802V, A931A
Zone 5 (cool) 90%-93%
A951S, A951A
Zone 6 (cold) 92%-95% A952V, A951E
Zone 7 (very cold) 95% and up A962V, A962E

Note: 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.

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.
