The GCES96 multi-speed furnace uses a pair of steel heat exchangers to convert 96% of the energy used into comfort, Goodman's highest mark for a single-stage furnace. Instead of a standard multi-speed blower motor, the GCES96 utilizes an ECM motor, which uses less power and provides smarter circulation.

Advanced Heat Exchanger Design

The GCES96 furnace employs a reliable heavy-duty tubular heat exchanger design. Aluminized steel is used in construction for incredibly efficient heat transfer and wrinkle-bend technology for extraordinary durability.

Secondary Heat Exchanger

This furnace produces additional heat by directing combustion gases through a secondary heat exchanger before they are vented. The secondary heat exchanger is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and it is sloped to prevent condensate build-up.

Multi-Speed ECM Motor

The GCES96's energy efficient blower motor uses the lowest speed it can to deliver precise temperature control for your home while keeping utility bills to a minimum.

Quiet Comfort

Goodman takes great pride in producing equipment that doesn't disrupt your home. The blower and gas valve of the GCES96 were selected for their incredibly low sound levels.

Self-Diagnostic Control Board

The GCES96 continuously monitors the system to ensure reliable operation, stores the last diagnostic codes in memory, and a flashing LED indicates condition for quick troubleshooting.

Secure Cabinet

All GCES96 furnaces are protected by a durable steel cabinet rated for less than 2% air leakage. The heat exchanger section is lined with foil-insulation to prevent heat loss and the return side of the cabinet is solid and airtight.

Extended Warranty

Goodman offers a 10-year limited unit replacement and parts warranty when you register your product online within 60 days of installation. An unregistered product has the standard 5-year warranty.
