Keeprite FurnaceReliable Heating on Demand
The two-stage system operates at low heat most of the time and automatically modulates to higher heat production if the temperature drops. Run the high-efficiency fan continuously to improve indoor air quality. The variable-speed motor can also help increase comfort by maximizing moisture removal during cooling operation.
Direct Hot Surface Ignition System features an advanced silicon nitride igniter for years of reliable starts.
The RPJ® III primary heat exchanger is made of corrosion-resistant weld-free stainless steel. The unique integrated ripple-edged design forces more heat to the outside surface area for higher efficiency.
Two-stage redundant gas valve, two-speed induced draft blower assembly, and variable-speed motor operate normally at the lower stage and ramp up as needed.
Variable-speed circulation blower motor is pre-lubricated, dynamically balanced, and resilient mounted to reduce vibration and noise.
State-of-the-art electronic controls monitor system operation and allow for advanced diagnostics, a timesaving tool for technicians.
- Energy-saving high-efficiency operation of 95% AFUE.
- Two-stage operation system reduces temperature and humidity swings in the home by heating and cooling more evenly.
- 10 year No Hassle Replacement™ limited warranty* gives you a replacement unit if the heat exchanger should fail within the first ten years.
- Lifetime limited warranty* on the primary and secondary heat exchanger.
- 10 year limited warranty* on all functional parts.
- HELP® (Homeowner’s Extended Labor Program) available.
* See published warranty for complete details.
In 1992, the Department of Energy set up a system to measure efficiency and established efficiency standards for the heating and cooling industry. Any predated, inefficient units can be wasting your energy dollars. Remember, no product can be 100% energy efficient.
Actual savings on a new Comfortmaker unit depend on several variables: the weather in your area, utility costs, the insulation of your home, the installation of your existing system, and your personal comfort preferences.
Generally, if you live in a hot climate, you may benefit from a higher SEER cooling unit. If the cold outlasts the warm weather and you have above average fuel costs, you may need a higher AFUE furnace.
Department of Energy Measurements and Standards
The Energy Star Program, initiated by the Department of Energy and the EPA, promotes the use of energy-efficient products. Look for the Energy Star symbol on Comfortmaker units that rate in the high numbers of efficiency. Comfortmaker is manufactured by International Comfort Products, LLC Corporation (USA), a voluntary partner in this government program.
SEER stands for Season Energy Efficiency Ratio and applies to central air conditioners and heat pumps. The minimum set by the Department of Energy is 13 SEER and for Energy Star, 14 SEER. The higher the SEER, the greater the energy economy.
AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency and applies to heating products. The minimum set by the Department of Energy is 78% AFUE and for Energy Star, 90% AFUE. The higher the AFUE, the greater the energy economy.
HSPF stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor and measures heat pump efficiency. The minimum set by the Department of Energy is 6.8 HSPF and for Energy Star, 8 HSPF. The higher the HSPF, the greater the energy economy.
Matching components help a system achieve maximum design efficiency. Your Comfortmaker dealer follows our recommendations when installing the outside condensing unit for an air conditioner and the evaporator coil inside with your furnace or air handler. In a split system like this, the outside and inside must be matched. If you update one and not the other, you lose efficiency.
