Maytag Gas Furnace Reviews - Maytag HVAC equipment including gas furnaces that are actually produced by Nordyne. The relationship between Maytag and Nordyne is not clear - does Nordyne lease the name Maytag for the products they produce or does Maytag own Nordyne. Perhaps we will find the answer for you soon to keep you updated.
I was surprised when researching gas furnaces that list their highest efficient gas furnace at 97% AFUE. This is a good AFUE rating for a gas furnace by any HVAC manufacturer. There is also no listing on the site that they are a member of AHRI which certifies manufacturer efficiency claims. Maytag’s top-tier gas furnace is a modulating gas furnace.
A big feature of their products is their warranties. All the HVAC products from Maytag that we researched for the reviews come with a 12-year worry-free limited warranty. This warranty applies to parts but not labor as most warranties go but 12 years makes this a great warranty.

This prevents cold air from being circulated through the duct system by allowing the heat exchanger to heat up before the blower energizes.
