Nortek Global HVAC FG7TE/FG7TN

St. Louis, March 1, 2017 – Nortek Global HVAC, a leading manufacturer of energy-efficient, HVAC systems, is adding a new 96% AFUE gas furnace to its lineup. Model FG7TE/FG7TN comes with a factory-installed ECM motor and programmable control board. The new furnace meets ENERGY STAR requirements and qualifies for local utility rebates and the U.S. federal tax credit.

The Nortek Global HVAC fixed-torque ECM blower motor is programmable to 16 different speeds for both heating and cooling operation modes, making it extremely adaptable to challenging high-static applications as well as a greater range of heating and cooling capacities. Nearly 100% of the fuel used to power the unit is converted into useful heating power. The new furnace also features:

  • SmartLite® hot surface igniter made of silicon nitride for long igniter life
  • On board jumper shunt for two-stage operation from a single-stage thermostat
  • Dehumidification terminal to reduce initial airflow for maximum humidity removal
  • Three LED status lights to simplify troubleshooting

Model FG7TE/FG7TN joins the company’s 95% AFUE furnaces, including another model made with an ECM motor, a single-stage model with multi-speed non-ECM blower motor and two multi-stage models.

Model FG7TE/FG7TN is available in Broan®, Frigidaire®, NuTone® and Westinghouse® brands of HVAC equipment. Similar model MGC2TE/MGC2TN is available in the Maytag® brand.
