Elite Series Gas Furnaces Offer High Efficiency and Outstanding Features

It’s not called the Elite Series for no reason. These gas furnaces deliver outstanding comfort for your home that doesn’t drain your bank account every month. Energy efficiency is a leading feature of each model, and with AFUE ratings* like these, you’ll wonder why you didn’t replace your furnace earlier. In addition to efficiency and reliable heat, the Elite Series gas furnaces have lots of wonderful features. Find details about each model below. If you’re ready for a gas furnace replacement, call Knoechel Heating Company in Zelienople at 724-452-6280 or schedule an appointment online.

ENERGY STAR® qualification and AFUE ratings of 96% are just the beginning of the energy efficiency discussion for this gas furnace.
