Secondary Heat Exchanger
This furnace produces addition 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.
The blower of the GCVM97 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.
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.
The GCVM97 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.

I bought this furnace a few weeks ago but installed only last weekend. It took me the whole day off to install, set up, and figure out how to control it. But it seems worth the effort in the long run.
Everything is as advertised. Good value for the price. Satisfied with the purchase.
It brings enough heat and it’s the only thing that matter to me. I was looking for a reliable furnace that could heat up the room fast. Bough this model after comparing it to many other options. Have not regret my choice yet.
The furnace came with lots of fuss. Disappointing at first, I got used to it so fast that I can’t imagine having a different model. My only recommendation is to be careful with it. Like really careful.
