A natural gas furnace offers exceptionally even heat--giving you a comfortable 110 to 120 degrees at the register. Natural gas is the cleanest burning fuel. In fact, it is far less harmful to the environment than oil, wood, or electricity generated from fossil fuels. It also costs less than most other heating systems.
Popular models of Ruud gas furnaces are now 92% AFUE to 98% AFUE efficient and their efficiency is not determined by the climate or outdoor temperature as is true of a heat pump. Ruud gas furnace models also include variable-speed blower technology.
The variable speed blower will steadily and efficiently maintain the home's temperature by starting out in a low speed then gradually "ramp up" towards the set temperature. As the blower motor approaches the set temperature, it slows its speed to "ramp down" before shutting off completely. A consistent level of air movement provides better air quality because the Ruud gas furnace runs more air through the filter system.
When properly maintained, a Ruud gas furnace can provide more than 20 years of service you can count on.

AFUE: Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency:
The measure of how efficiently a furnace can utilize its fuel. For example, a 90% AFUE for a gas furnace means it outputs 90 BTUs of useful heating for every 100 BTUs of gas input, where the rest is used during the heating process and lost in the exhaust. The Federal minimum in the North Region (Oregon) is 90% AFUE, with ratings as high as 98% AFUE possible with specific models.
