Coleman Furnaces are Premium Quality & An EnergyStar Most Efficient Furnace
Our Fox Heating & Cooling Specialists know that you want to the best for your home, which is why we recommend Coleman heating & cooling products. Coleman furnaces are up to 98% efficient, providing energy savings as well as superior home comfort.
COLEMAN NATURAL GAS FURNACES & AIR HANDLERS
Founded in 1900, you may recognize the Coleman brand from their high quality camp stoves. After WWII they began designing heating for mobile homes. Since then, they have been making home heating and cooling equipment for all home types. Their success and excellent reputation has allowed them to grow over the years, and they are now a top quality manufacturer of furnaces, heat pumps and air conditioners. Coleman is distributed by Johnson Controls (JCI), one of the world’s top manufacturers and installers of heating and cooling systems.
Whether you are using a standalone furnace or air handler to heat your home or combining it with a Coleman heat pump or air conditioner, there is a broad range of products to choose from.

OPTIONS WHEN CHOOSING A COLEMAN FURNACE
Choosing a furnace sounds simple, but there are two aspects that can influence your comfort and heating costs. Here’s an easy way to understand some of the choices you will have. Your Fox Heating & Cooling Specialists will walk you through all of your options during your free consultation.
1- Stage, 2-Stage or 100 Modulating Stages. Think of stages as operating speeds. A one stage basic furnace turns on, blasts hot air to reach your desired temperature and then turns off until the temperature drops and it turns on again. As most of us have experienced, between cycles, as the temperature drops, the outside edges of rooms tend to get drafty. A two stage furnace has high and low speed operation. When it kicks on, it will start high to fill the room with heat faster, and then move to low to save energy. It runs longer and provides significantly greater comfort.
The Coleman Echelon modulating furnace has 100 stages! Combined with a variable speed motor, this furnace manages fuel use with maximum efficiency to keep at exactly the temperature you have set. A bit like driving in cruise control, the furnace runs smoothly, modulating its output up and down to keep you continuously comfortable, and to eliminate wasted fuel. That is how this type of furnace can be 98% efficient.
Energy Efficiency – 80% AFUE to 95% AFUE to 98 AFUE. There’s something for everyone in the Coleman product line including furnaces that run at a basic 80% efficiency, all the way up to super efficient 98% furnaces. AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency), is the national standard measurement of the efficiency of a furnace. All gas or propane furnaces are rated on this standard.
80% AFUE means that 80% of the gas used to create heat actually ends up as heat. The other 20% is lost as waste in the process. 98% AFUE means that only 2% is lost as waste. Yes, that is an automatic savings of 18% on your heating costs.
WHAT MAINTENANCE WILL A COLEMAN GAS FURNACE REQUIRE?
For Seattle homeowners who have gas, propane or oil furnaces, an annual furnace maintenance is recommended by Coleman, and is a standard best practice recommended by Energystar (EPA). Maintenance of your fuel burning Coleman furnace will keep that equipment working as expected and maintain the energy efficiency over time. Contact Fox to schedule your annual furnace service.
