This brand is from ALLIED AIR ENTERPRISES which is a part of LENNOX INTERNATIONAL. They offer basic units that are available in upflow, counterflow, or basement models. The "basement" models are compact units for those older basements with low ceilings. They offer 83% efficient furnaces that are backed by a very good warranty but they are only available through their dealer network in the USA.
This brand is distributed by VELOCITY BOILER WORKS and the oil furnaces are made by Thermo Products LLC.
They offer four different models so they will fit almost any type of installation. The units are ready to add an air conditioner and they offer an optional sidewall direct vent kit. They feature a durable efficient ceramic lined combustion chamber.
The HIBOY SHORTY unit (shown here) has a standard blower motor but a variable speed option is available for improved efficiency and comfort. The standard warranty on parts other than the heat exchanger is not very good when compared to other brands.
