- 80,000 BTU 96% AFUE two stage variable speed natural gas furnace
- Requires plastic/PVC flue venting
- Can be used in the upflow or horizontal orientation
- Can be converted to propane with an LP conversion kit (sold separately)
- Innovative design for electrical efficiency, safety, and lower sound output
The GMVC960803BN Goodman gas furnace has an input of 80,000 BTU’s. The output of the unit, determined by the input times the efficiency, is 76,800 BTU’s. This output makes this furnace suitable for most medium-sized houses in average climate conditions.
With one of the highest efficiency ratings available, the GMVC960803BN gas furnace is 96% efficient. At this efficiency, the GMVC960803BN uses only 4% of its gas to operate the furnace itself and 96% of the gas going into the furnace to make your home warm and comfortable. With high-efficiency furnaces such as this one, the flue venting must be plastic or PVC.
Two Stage Variable Speed Furnace
Allowing for a more precise air flow output to best suit your home’s needs at a moment’s notice, the variable speed motor on the GMVC960803BN is the best blower motor that Goodman has to offer. The two stage burner on the furnace allows for a lower output and a higher output for a more precise heat output as needed by your thermostat. Both of these high-end features allow for a small increase in efficiency, but the primary benefits are enhanced comfort and a more stable temperature throughout any season of the furnace’s use.
The GMVC960803BN comes standard with Goodman’s 10 year parts warranty and its exceptional lifetime heat exchanger warranty. In order to maintain this warranty, the installation must follow your state and local codes and the unit must be registered online via Goodman’s website.
Durability and Reliability
The heavy-duty tubular heat exchanger on the GMVC960803BN Goodman gas furnace is designed for constant winter use to provide peace of mind thanks to its enhanced reliability. The aluminized steel design of this heat exchanger provides a faster and more efficient heat transfer rate. Moreover, the outer casing on the unit is a heavier gauge of steel, protecting the internals of the furnace and lowering air leakage and furnace operation noise. All of these features enhance comfort and provide durability and reliability for the lifetime of the unit.
The GMVC960803BN furnace runs on natural gas from the factory. When you field-install the optional LP conversion kit (found here at an additional cost), this furnace can use propane instead when the installation requires it. This Goodman furnace is also able to be installed in the upflow or horizontal positions, allowing for a more versatile application potential.
