Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Igor Does the job and more!
This furnace replaced a 35,000 BTU gravity flow unit. We had remodeled and opened up the floor plan to a great room concept, so upgrading to a 50,000 BTU unit with a circulating fan was the right way to go.
This one really does the job!
We replaced the included thermostat with a program-able thermostat, but the included thermostat works fine for what it is.
I am especially pleased with the circulating fan. It blows the hot air out the bottom, which is a real bonus. So the floor area is the first to get the heat. The rooms warm up very quickly. The fan is a little noisy, but all in all, it's well worth the extra investment of adding electricity for the fan.

I replaced a very old furnace with this one. The unit arrived in perfect condition, was easy to install, and worked fine. My only comments are that the thermostat wire supplied is way too short (15') to reach any realistic location for mounting the thermostat away from the heater. The manufacturer should supply no less than 25' to reach (how much more would that cost?). I had to go back to the store to pick up more wire. Also, the fan motor was a bit stiff at first light-off. I oiled the bearings and that freed it up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Poor quality and poor shipping
This unit is basically the same furnace built 30 years ago with reduced quality. The old burner was a tough cast piece the new one is thin stainless steel. It does not have electronic start and it has no provisions for supply air to the fire. I assumed that in 30 years these improvements would have been made. Also the unit was damaged in shipment. I made it work, but I would not purchase another Williams product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NorthernCA Exactly what we needed.
When our wall heater went out, was glad to be able to find replacement online. Ordering was easy, and free delivery to our home was included. We had friend with knowledge of heating and air conditioning install and saved several hundreds of dollars over previous estimates we had received. Install was not difficult and went smoothly.
