American Standard Gas Furnace Prices and Reviews 2021

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.

American Standard is a heating and air conditioning brand that manufactures residential and commercial HVAC systems. Originally formed in 1929 under the American Standard Companies banner, they were responsible for not just HVAC systems, but vehicle control systems as well as their popular brand of bath and kitchen products. In 1984, the company acquired the HVAC brand Trane and ran all three divisions until 2007. It was at this time that the company sold off the other two divisions and renamed itself Trane. They continue to sell HVAC systems under the Trane and American Standard brands, though both are now owned by their parent company, Ingersoll-Rand.

American Standard is considered by most to be the affordable alternative to their flagship brand, Trane, and currently offer thirteen different furnace types within three different product lines: Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Like the names suggest, Silver is their least expensive series and Platinum is the most expensive, while Gold offers a mid-range option, though each has a different set of features. Here is a quick navigation of this guide:

American Standard’s Features

– Comfort-R

Unique to Trane brand gas furnaces, and thus, American Standard units, Comfort-R is a feature designed to reduce moisture and humidity while also providing even heating throughout the home. The Comfort-R setting is designed to allow the blower fan to speed up slowly while the compressor loads. In this case, as it speeds up further, temperatures increase and moisture is removed more thoroughly.

– Hot Surface Igniter

A durable hot surface igniter allows the burner to start electronically and safely for highly efficient operation. Unlike a standing pilot light that requires fuel for it to stay lit, the inclusion of a hot surface igniter means that there is no unnecessary gas wasted while the furnace is not in use. It’s not only an effective alternative to the standing pilot, but a safer one that won’t add unnecessary heat to the furnace during the warmer months while it’s lit.

– Vortica II Blower

Exclusively available in Trane products and those under the Trane umbrella of brands, the Vortica II blower helps American Standard furnaces improve on air flow and noise reduction. This Vortica Advanced Air System is built using strong composite materials that resist rust, corrosion and cracking for increased durability. It also requires less fan power and, as a result, makes American Standard gas furnaces highly efficient with lower energy use. Finally, the Vortica II blower is quiet and allows for a level of comfort noticeable in not only the temperature but also in noise reduction.
