The best furnace you can buy is a two-stage furnace with a variable speed blower, the most effecient furnace you can buy is the 95% one. the most important thing is the technician installing it. there is a very advanced setup configuration that needs to be followed depending on your outside unit, your ductwork, and the living environment. find a NATE certified dealer. also, look for a Lennox Premier Dealer, and an American Standard Customer Care dealer. you can find them by going to Lennox.com and AmericanStandardAir.com

I have an Amana Distinction furnace, last heating season we had an issue with a lack of air movement to the second floor. We paid for a technician to come out. His solution - boost the blower speed.


If you have a variable speed motor The black wire going to the contactor relay is highest speed.or if there is a terminal strip near the motor there will be one wire and three places to plug a wire marked H, M, Low

How do i reset power to thermostat from amana furnace is there a reset for controls?


The manual says it should automatically reset. However to manual reset the unit it says to "interrupt" the power supply. --which I think means unplug/turn off electric to unit for 20 seconds. If you do not have the manual go the manuf website and download it. --Also, this is a Goodman unit. If it does not reset something else it wrong that is preventing the unit from starting for safety reasons.

Amana furnace model amv9 has water dripping from the exhaust outlet. the exhaust doesnt seem to be clogged and the overflow for water to run into doesnt seem to be clogged. water is makign its way int


You did not say if you have a dehumidifier or air conditioner installed on this unit. If those are not installed on it then the only place moisture could be coming from is down the exhaust connection for the flue. If one or both of those items are installed then the issue is the drain trays might have debris built up that you cannot see.

Why is my 95% rheem furnace blinking code 2


Check condensate water /drain stopped up. It will allow a start after a reset but then it shuts the combustion air fan down and that shuts the unit down this will require a service tech make sure their familiar

Thermostat blank ac wont come on


Hello, some units have a condensate safety switch that will cut off power to the thermostat when the drain line is clogged, A wet/ dry vac must be used to clean out the drain line before the thermostat will receive power again. Amother reason could be either a blown fuse or burned out transformer.

I need help selecting the best Amana 5 ton furnace/ac.


I believe you are asking which furnace to go with?

Just some clarification first.

The "condensor" is the outdoor unit.
A "Compressor" is the device inside the outdoor unit that pumps and "compresses" the refridgerant.

An evaporator is the indoor coil, it has refridgerant running through it.

The furnace is completely seperat from the condensor and evaporator.

I "THINK" you are saying that you are looking to buy an AMANA system with a 5 ton 14 to 16 SEER condensor, and a furnace, but you need suggestions on the furnace.

typically when you purchace a condensor, the evaporator coil is simply matched by the manufacturer to the specific condensor you purchace, there is no choosing to deal with. All condensors ofcourse come with a compressor already installed.

If my assumption about your request is correct, maybe this will help.

Amana's 90+ furnaces are great units. I would recomend them to anyone. The 80+ uses a somewhat inferior heat exchanger, and is ofcourse less efficient.
Anything higher than a 90+ can take quite a while to recoup the costs of the enitial purchace through your efficiency savings.

If it were my home, I would go with the 90+ furnace, and the 16 SEER Condensor/evaporator system. But ultimatly, its up to you, your efficiency standards and your wallets potential.

If you live in a northern state where AC is little needed, I'd go with the 14 SEER AC.
Again, an initial cost verses long term savings issue.

Amana Air Command 80, 20 years old. Electronic ignition. Furnace does not start. Good power to furnace. Themostat properly set. Where do I start looking? Bob


Hello Bob,
Welcome to fixya,

You said, Amana Air Command 80, 20 years old.
Electronic ignition.
Furnace does not start.
Good power to furnace.
Thermostat properly set.
Where do I start looking?

Sounds like you possibly have one or more bad jets if the unit is a gas furnace!
Let me know how it goes.
Huuum

WOW, listen to this story!
I understand you are looking for the solution to fix your furnace your self.
But I want to tell you my story about my smart wife and our furnace.
When we moved into this house the furnace was 20 years old and she suggested that we put a new one that it will save us money.
I laughed at her and replied if it's not broken why fix it!
Six years later it finally broke down and I replaced the whole furnace and central air unit with a new one.
Our utility bill went down $100 dollars a month!
That's $7200. that I lost over 6 years due to not respecting my wife's power of reasoning!
If you can afford it or can get financing replace any unit 20 years old and it will pay for it self.
Can you imaging $1200. a year for 20 years is $24,000 dollars I'm saving with a new and efficient unit.
Do the math!!!!!!!!!

Thank You,
Huuum, Hope I gave you some good fatherly advice.
