    What furnaces out there qualify for the $150-$200 tax credits set for 2006 and 2007?

    The criteria is that the furnace must be rated at 95% efficiency for $150 tax credit. If the furnace also has a variable speed blower the tax credit is $200.

    It certainly should be a nice sales pitch to tell customers that they can knock $150-$200 off of their taxes.

    It's probably the Carrier 58MVP040, a 40k input unit at 96% efficiency. That specific model is physically huge, though, so it won't be usable in a lot of the applications where such a small output unit makes sense.

    Amana has had up to 96% furnaces for years, so that was a shoe-in.

    Goodman now has 8 models rated at 95%, which, being that they are basically Amana furnaces all that needed to be done was to rate them with ARI and write up the literature.

    The 95% Goodman series are GMS95****** for single stage, multi-speed blowers and GMV95***** for two stage, variable speed blowers.

    I was just wondering what the competition had in this arena.

    Is 95% still the standard for the credit? I thought it was $150 for any 90+% and additional for 95+%

    Which Amana and Goodman models? I've only seen the 2S/VS at 95% - Bryant/Carrier has the 96.6% in the 40k...not sure what it rates at higher levels
