The XL90 gas furnace also has two-stage heat and a four-speed blower. Both are good especially if the blower is controlled properly. Granted it is not like an ECM Variable speed blower but it does have different speeds so you can run it at a slower speed and then a higher speed if necessary.

Trane XL90 Gas Furnace Reviews - Consumer Ratings

By the numbers, the features of the XL90 Gas Furnace are:

  • Two-stage gas heat - this is good. Not as great as a fully modulating gas furnace but better than a single-stage gas furnace.
  • Four-Speed blower - this is also good as long as it is controlled properly. ? - Does it actually run at all four speeds depending on the demand?
  • 40″ cabinet and a 28″ depth makes this gas furnace easy to fit in many places
  • Convertible to horizontal flow - another good feature
  • Self-diagnostic control board for gas furnace troubleshooting - this is good but when are they going to make a furnace that will fix itself when it breaks down?
