It’s getting cold, which means it’s time to start thinking about buying a new furnace. With so many options on the market, it can be hard to figure out which one will be the best fit for your home.

At Paragon Heating and Home Comfort Solutions, we have many years of experience with installing, maintaining, and repairing furnaces of all kinds. These are our top two picks for high quality furnaces that stand above the rest.

Coleman TM8Y 80% 2-Stage Furnace

The Coleman TM8Y 80% two-stage furnace is a high-performing furnace at a reasonable price point. The unit automatically stages so you get the right amount of heat without racking up an enormous gas bill. With efficiency levels up to 80% AFUE in homes with chimneys, it’s a good choice for anyone looking to save on energy while staying comfortable.

One of the best things about the TM8Y is the high-efficiency ECM fan motor, which gives you dependable air distribution. It’s also not as noisy as some of the other furnaces we see, and the two-stage burner makes it easier to maintain your ideal comfort level. With a compact 33-inch height, it’s relatively hassle-free to install, even in tight spaces.

The TM8Y comes with a lifetime warranty for the heat exchanger and a 10-year warranty on parts. Like other Coleman LX series furnaces, it is designed, engineered, and assembled in the United States.

We often recommend the TM8Y to homeowners in the Puget Sound region. This is a good value product that will help you save on energy and stay comfortable for many years to come.

Coleman TM9Y 96% Efficient 2-Stage ECM Motor

The TM9Y furnace takes everything we love about the TM8Y to the next level. It’s even quieter and more efficient, but still compact and dependable. At 96% AFUE, this furnace is one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly options on the market and meets ENERGY STAR qualifications.

The TM9Y is designed to run seamlessly on natural gas or propane. With a fully insulated cabinet design, you won’t hear much noise from this furnace. The two-stage burner easily adjusts the heat level to match your comfort.

Like other Coleman furnaces, the TM9Y is designed, engineered, and assembled in the United States. It comes with a lifetime warranty for the heat exchanger and a 10-year warranty on parts. The Coleman brand is good about standing behind its products.

If you’re willing to spend a little more money upfront, this furnace is definitely the way to go. With extraordinarily high efficiency, you will get your money back in savings on your gas bill, keep the furnace noise level as low as it gets, and also reduce your impact on the environment.
