Daikin Gas Furnace Reviews | Consumer RatingsDaikin Gas Furnace Reviews | Consumer Ratings. Daikin offers gas furnaces for residential application in AFUE ratings from 80% to 98%. Their minimum efficiency gas furnace is single-stage operation while the Daikin top-tier gas furnace has modulating operation. The economy model is offered for those on a budget and those who really do not care about their utility bill. The top-tier Daikin gas furnace, while being costly for the upfront purchase, saves in the long run. The top-tier Daikin gas furnace is economical to operate because of its modulating operation. Daikin also has several mid-grade gas furnace units that offer a higher efficiency rating from the baseline 80 AFUE gas furnaces. Additionally, mid-grade units typically use two-stage operation.

The big difference between the lower-tier units and higher-tier units are the heat exchangers. To get extra efficiency the higher-grade units have secondary heat exchangers to absorb extra heat from the combustion gases before they are vented outside.  Other things add to the efficiency of gas furnaces such as ECM variable speed blower motors and variable speed inducer motors. Finally, from the lowest grade model to the highest Daikin offers reliability, durability and quality. Various features of select Daikin gas furnaces include:

  • Convenient left or right connection for gas and electrical connections. This makes installation easier.

  • Modulating gas valve for higher efficiency in select Daikin modulating gas furnaces.

Always check with the manufacturer or dealer about warranty information. This information changes quite frequently. Additionally, always make sure to register the warranty within the deadline period after installation. Additionally, if an extended parts and labor warranty is available I recommend purchasing this warranty especially for higher tier equipment.
