With more than a century of experience in creating rugged, reliable HVAC equipment, Day & Night offers many options to meet homeowners’ heating needs. For help choosing the right model, read on for a comprehensive guide to Day & Night furnace options.
Types of Day & Night furnaces
Day & Night offers both gas and oil furnaces, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. A traditional furnace sits alongside the inside parts of your air conditioner in a cabinet inside your home. It forces warm air throughout your home using the same ducts as your air conditioner and is controlled by the same thermostat. You can also install a furnace in a home without air conditioning.
Although they work the same way, gas and oil furnaces have some important differences. Typically more efficient, gas furnaces cost more upfront but maintain lower fuel costs. You can only install gas furnaces where natural gas is available.
Although oil furnaces are more affordable upfront, fuel prices depend on the volatile oil market. You must have oil delivered and the furnace cleaned on a regular basis. In addition, oil is less environmentally friendly than natural gas. However, oil provides more heat per BTU (British Thermal Unit) than gas.
If you lack indoor space, consider a packaged unit. This option combines all the components for both heating and cooling into one outdoor unit. You can install a packaged unit on a pad outside your home or on your roof. Day & Night offers several models to meet different needs.
Day & Night furnace models
When selecting a furnace, always check its AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) percentage. This number explains how much of the furnace’s energy is turned into heat instead of escaping as energy loss. Read on to learn more about some popular Day & Night furnace models.
The Ion series is Day & Night’s top-of-the-line gas furnace. These highly efficient units feature variable speed blower motors. Most models also include two-stage gas valves for improved performance. Features include remote Wi-Fi access and compatibility with Day & Night’s Ion System Control, a full-featured programmable thermostat that also provides humidity control. These furnaces are dual-fuel capable with a compatible heat pump. By moving warm air around, a heat pump helps reduce your energy bills, especially if you live in a temperate climate.
Day & Night’s G97CMN has an AFUE of 98% and a modulating gas valve that saves energy and gently ramps up power as the temperature drops. This furnace also includes sound-dampening features for quiet operation. The G96CTN is similar, except that it has an AFUE of 96% and a two-stage rather than modulating gas valve. Those who want an eco-friendly option can consider the ultra-low emission G80CSU, with an AFUE of 80% and a single-stage gas valve.
The QuietComfort G96VTN is similar to the Ion series gas furnaces, with an AFUE of 96%, a variable-speed blower motor, and a two-stage gas valve. However, it lacks Wi-Fi connectivity and compatibility with the Ion System Control.
The Performance series is Day & Night’s budget line of gas furnaces. These furnaces lack some of the features of the higher-end models, but provide efficient and reliable heating at a lower price point. They range from the 96% AFUE N95ESN, with a five-speed blower motor and single-stage gas valve, to the 80% AFUE N80VSL, with a variable-speed blower motor and single-stage gas valve. Ultra-low emissions models include the N95ESU and the N80ESU.
Constant Comfort series
This series comprises Day & Night’s top-of-the-line oil furnaces. Designed for rugged durability and high efficiency, these units offer variable speed blower motors and are dual-fuel capable with compatible heat pumps. The OMV and NOMV are full-size units with AFUEs of 86.3 and 85.7 respectively, while the OLV Low Boy is designed for installation in tight spaces. It has an AFUE of 86.8%.
Performance series (oil)
Day & Night also offers a performance line of budget-friendly oil furnaces. These reliable and efficient furnaces feature fixed blower motors. Full-size models include the OMF, with an AFUE of 86.4%, and the OUF, with an AFUE of 86%. Smaller Low Boy models include the 86.4% AFUE OLR and the 85.1% AFUE OLF.
Day & Night offers several packaged units for homeowners with limited space. All packaged units feature a gas rather than an oil furnace. The QuietComfort Deluxe PGR5 combines an 81% AFUE furnace with an air conditioner that has a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating of 16. Additional options include the 81% AFUE/14 SEER QuietComfort PGS4 and the 81% AFUE/14 SEER Performance PGD4.

Both gas and oil furnaces have an average lifespan of 20 to 30 years. How frequently you use your furnace and whether you perform regular maintenance can impact your furnace’s lifespan, especially with oil furnaces that are prone to a buildup of soot and dirt. With regular maintenance and infrequent use, your furnace could last for 40 years or more.
