Today, you'll find our high-efficiency gas furnaces in more manufactured
homes than ever before. That's because more families are discovering
only our furnaces offer such incredible efficiency and comfort, plus lots
of other value added features .
Here's what makes it work:
Furnace design has advanced in recent years to be far safer and more
efficient than older designs. This is the result of improvements in the
burner, the ignition, and the blower motor. Furnace heating efficiency is
measured by an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. A
higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace.
The basic components of a furnace system are:
* A burner, where gas (natural or propane) or oil is delivered and
* An ignition source, which is typically an electronic hot surface igniter
that supersedes the old-style pilot light
* A heat exchanger, where the heat from the burning gas is
transferred to the air distribution system
* Blower motor, such as the highly efficient electronically commutated
motor (ECM) to propel air through the ductwork
* Filtration and ductwork to circulate clean, warm air throughout the
* A flue or vent pipe to exhaust by-products of combustion (such as
water vapor and carbon dioxide) outside. High-efficiency furnaces use
special, corrosion-resistant vent-pipe materials.
Ruud Furnaces For Your Home
Ruud has been a trusted name in the United States for
many years. One of the world's leading manufacturers
of central heating and cooling products, Ruud
distributes its full line of residential and commercial

Most home comfort systems have two parts: an outdoor air
conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit, a furnace.
Furnaces heat and circulate warm air in the winter. They also
take cool air from the outdoor unit and circulate it through your
home in summer. The indoor and outdoor units are designed to
work together. When the furnace is properly matched with a heat
pump or air conditioner, you enjoy maximum efficiency and
extended system life. Furnace heating ability is measured with
an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. A
higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace
