1. Heavy-duty 13-gauge hot rolled steel wrap-around
heat exchanger for long life. This is where the
fuel is burned to create heat, which is then circulated
throughout your home.
2. Pre-formed ceramic fiber combustion chamber
for quiet operation. Highly durable, the ceramic
fiber combustion chamber heats up quickly, providing
more complete combustion for improved efficiency.
(Located inside heat exchanger.)
3. Beckett flame-retention burner. The burner
is the heart of the furnace, providing heat, fuel
and air to burn oil. This high-efficiency burner
is state-of-the-art, allowing for more complete
combustion and reliability.
4. Direct drive, permanently lubricated, four-speed
blower motor. With four speeds, the blower motor
has the air handling flexibility for both heating
and cooling operation. Your dealer can select
the most appropriate setting for your home.
5. Insulated furnace cabinet, including blower
compartment. The interior of the furnace is insulated
so less heat escapes the cabinet and more heat
is distributed into your home. This also keeps
operating sound to a minimum.
6. Heavy-gauge, two-tone painted steel cabinet
is strong and durable.
Washable filter. A clean filter improves operation
and maintains the efficiency and long-term reliability
of your oil furnace. The Freedom® 80’s
washable filter makes it easy and convenient to
maintain a clean filter, or you have the option
to purchase disposable filters.
What Operating Efficiency Means In An
The efficiency of oil furnaces is reflected as
a percentage and is referred to as the AFUE or
Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The
minimum AFUE allowed by the Department of Energy
is 78%. American Standard's family of oil furnaces
delivers up to 82.7% AFUE, which we believe provides
a superior level of operating efficiency, comfort
