Achiever Plus Series: Up to 96% AFUE Constant Torque ECM Motor Multi Position (R96T)
Engineered for Reliable Comfort
Industry-first patented features and 360°+1 engineering make the Ruud R96T Achiever Plus Series Gas Furnace a smart option. From top to bottom, inside and out, and every angle in between, we’ve thought of everything to bring you efficient and reliable indoor comfort.
Enjoy greater comfort and performance
thanks to a two-stage operation that offers a more consistent indoor environment — keeping cold spots to a minimum. The two-stage heating design primarily operates on low-speed, only temporarily switching to high during peak cold-weather conditions.
Reliability is of the utmost importance when it comes to your family’s comfort. Our Achiever Plus Series Gas Furnace comes standard with the Ruud-exclusive PlusOne Ignition System. This proven direct spark ignition (DSI) is one of the most reliable ignition systems available today. Used exclusively by Ruud in the Heating and Cooling industry, this technology is the same proven design used on ovens and stoves.
Protect your home with our PlusOne™ Water Management System. The industry’s first blocked drain sensor will shut off your furnace when a drain is blocked, preventing water spillage and potential water damage to your home. It also prevents seasonal start-up issues, which means fewer warranty claims. All this and the best warranties in the industry translate to fewer repair bills and more cozy nights at home.
Quiet and efficient operation is what you get with a Ruud Achiever Plus Series Gas Furnace. The new patented heat exchanger design provides improved airflow, which reduces operating sound by 20%**, making it one of the quietest furnaces on the market. And a two-stage operation adds to a more comfortable indoor environment.
