Furnace ratings part 9 continues our expert and unbiased reviews with a look at the EverRest Extreme Comfort, Franklin, and Fraser-Johnston brands.

BRAND--------BASIC-PREMIUM-ULTIMATE

EVERREST EXTREME COMFORT-4*-2*-3*  

These units are made by GOODMAN MANUFACTURING which is a part of DAIKIN GLOBAL. The GMSS92 is a basic furnace that is backed by a good guarantee. They feature durable tubular primary heat exchangers and stainless steel secondary heat exchangers as well as silicon nitride ignitors. They have sealed cabinets with less than 2% air leakage for better inbdoor air quality 

The GMVC96 is a multi-position premium unit that has communicating ability and a two speed inducer fan motor as well as a "auto-comfort" mode for enhanced dehumidification. All of those features combine to provide better indoor air quality but the warranty on the units is only average when compared to other brands. The GMVM97 is an ultimate furnace with all of those features and a variable speed inducer but the brand is only available through their authorized dealer network.
