The C97 Tech Pro Series features a two-stage gas valve and a variable speed energy efficient ECM Eon blower motor. Continental’s two-stage furnace reduces temperature swings within your home, maintaining a consistent and comfortable temperature. The C97 Tech Pro furnace will operate on low fire for greater efficiency and comfort for most of the heating season. On colder days, the furnace automatically switches to the second stage, producing more heat to satisfy demand. This effective two-stage system is like having two furnaces in one. With the C97 Tech Pro, you’ll be warm all winter long.
