Cool Cloud Technology
Exclusive to Goodman and Amana, Cool Cloud connects technicians directly to your furnace, saving you time and money on assessments and service calls. With a Bluetooth connection to your control board, you can reduce manual time when diagnosing units.
ComfortBridge monitors performance, gathers the data and uses it to make automatic adjustments to your heating and cooling. These data-driven climate control decisions are designed to use the least amount of energy to create the most ideally comfortable environment in your home.
This Amana model comes with a 10-year limited parts warranty. This includes all functional parts on the AMVC furnace. It also comes with a lifetime unit replacement warranty wherein if the heat exchanger on the furnace ver gives out, the registered homeowner can get an entirely new furnace as a replacement rather than replacing the key part.
Comparable Models by Amana
Amana has a fleet of quality furnace models at a range of prices. If you’re looking for a more cost-effective unit, a comparable unit, or a premium unit, please visit our reviews on the following models.
Model comparison by lower price - Amana AMVC96 versus Amana AMSS92
For a few hundred dollars less, you can still get a quality high-efficiency furnace from Amana. The AMSS92 doesn’t have the same bells and whistles as the AMVC, but it’s sturdy, efficient, reliable, has great user reviews and Amana’s outstanding 10 year warranty on parts and replacements.
Although you’re losing some AFUE percentage and the coveted ENERGY STAR certification, this unit is a great overall value for the price.
Model comparison by features - Amana AMVC96 vs. Amana AMEC96
The AMEC96 has a lot in common with this model, the only major difference is that you trade in the AMVC’s flexibility and software add ons for a sturdier design, making this model as durable as it is efficient. Amana’s engineered longevity means fewer broken parts and less wear and tear. The stainless steel heat exchanger will keep this furnace going through any condition while retaining its ENERGY STAR certification. Again, the only downside is losing the adaptability of Cool Cloud and Comfort Bridge technologies.
Model comparison by Premium Tier - Amana AMVC96 versus Amana AMVC97
The next step up from this model is the AMVC97. It’s identical to the 96 in many ways, but it’s simply built to perform at an even more exceptional level. You virtually eliminate wasted energy at an AFUE of 97% plus, making this one of the most energy efficient and cost saving units in Amana’s fleet.
If you’re looking to invest in something that will stand the test of time and comes with a great mix of warranty, durability, technology and efficiency, the AMVC97 is a great choice.
