Goodman established itself as the largest HVAC manufacturer in the US by producing high-quality, efficient equipment and providing it to homeowners at a great value. The GCVM97 furnace utilizes a combination of dual steel heat exchangers, a modulating gas valve, and a variable speed blower motor to heat your home at an incredible 97% efficiency. Both the gas valve and motor scale their performance to your home's demand from moment-to-moment to ensure that you stay comfortable without over-heating your space. Even with some of the most advanced components available, installing the GCVM970803BN is easy. Goodman provides multiple options for orientation and gas, electrical, and venting connections. Maintenance is just as easy thanks to a self-diagnosing control board that records and displays error codes. If you're looking for exceptional comfort and peak efficiency, the GCVM97 is what you want.
Advanced Heat Exchanger Design
The GCVM97 furnace employs a reliable dual-diameter tubular heat exchanger design. Aluminized steel is used in construction for incredibly efficient heat transfer, and a wrinkle-bend is applied to the tubes to enhance the heat exchanger's dependability and longevity.
Secondary Heat Exchanger
This furnace produces additional heat without using more fuel by directing combustion gases through a secondary heat exchanger before they are vented. To prevent damage from the gas as it cools, this secondary heat exchanger is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and it is sloped to prevent condensate build-up.
Goodman takes great pride in producing equipment that doesn't disrupt your home. The blower of the GCVM970803BN was selected for its incredibly low sound levels. Additionally, this unit offers an airflow system and fan speed options that allow it to operate quietly while providing consistent comfort.
The GCVM970803BN offers several venting options to streamline installation in a variety of applications. It can be used in either a two-pipe direct vent setup or a single-pipe configuration with combustion air provided from within your home. Additionally, it support both top and side venting options.
All GCVM97 furnaces are protected by a durable steel cabinet rated for less than 2% air leakage. The heat exchanger section is insulated to prevent heat loss and the return side of the cabinet is solid and airtight.
This furnace is compatible with Goodman's ComfortNet communicating controls. A ComfortNet control streamlines the installation and maintenance processes further by automatically detecting your equipment and providing diagnostics and troubleshooting.
Goodman's Auto-Comfort mode is available in applications where the GCVM970803BN is used to distribute cooled air. This mode scales output up to the cooling demand in stages for improved comfort, efficiency, and dehumidification.
The GCVM970803BN makes it simple to enhance your system with a humidifier and an electronic air cleaner; just wire them directly to the low-voltage terminals on the control board.
