The affordability of Payne brand furnaces depends on the individual consumer's financial situation. The company claims on its website that its gas furnaces, offered in three models, are both affordable and reliable.
The three models sold by Payne, listed as the PG8MVA, PG8MEA and MG8M, each feature an 80 percent annual fuel utilization efficiency rating. This rating indicates how energy-efficient the unit is, based on a percentage ratio of heat output to fuel intake.
The Payne brand is owned by the Carrier Corporation, a heating, venting and air conditioning manufacturing company that is in turn a division of the United Technologies multinational conglomerate.
