The Continental C96 Gas Furnace Series is one of the most reliable furnaces in the industry. Continental’s C96 two-stage furnace reduces temperature swings within your home, maintaining a consistent and comfortable setting. The C96 Series furnace will operate on low fire for greater efficiency and comfort for most of the heating season. On colder days, the furnace automatically switches to the second stage, producing more heat to satisfy demand. This effective two-stage system is like having two furnaces in one. With your Continental C96 Series furnace, you’ll enjoy the winter seasons for years to come.
AFUE works much like the miles-per-gallon rating on a car – the higher the rating, the lower the fuel costs. The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) measures the amount of comfort for every dollar spent. If a furnace is 25 years old or older, it could have a rating as low as 55% to 65% AFUE, compared to the Continental C96 Series’ 96% AFUE.
Continental’s EnerSave Plus motor uses variable speed technology, creating a two-stage furnace, which runs longer at lower capacity – 60% versus 100%. The blower runs at 60% on the first stage for most of the year, reducing electrical consumption by up to 80% over conventional blower motors saving you fuel and money.
Continental’s C96 Series offers zero clearance in all positions, providing installation ease in closets and alcoves with no additional kits required. Manufactured for natural gas, with the option of simple conversion to propane. The C96 Series is certified to 4500 feet in Canada with no modification and one of the smallest 96% AFUE furnaces on the market.
With WHISPER QUIET™ operation the EnerSave Plus and EnerSave Pro motors will ‘soft start’ & ‘soft stop’ gradually changing speed to reduce the noise created by conventional motors.
Continental’s C96 offers the option of installing a HomeShield UV lamp directly into the cabinet of the furnace. This allows the air passing through the furnace to be purified with HomeShield’s UV technology before it circulates through your home. HomeShield uses chemical-free, ultra-violet light to intercept airborne pathogens like allergens and dust mites. It halts bacterial growth from re-occurring and helps to maintain healthy air in your home.
