I have been fortunate to have serviced every brand mentioned in this rant.
I have seen problems with every brand of furnace. I also believe 80% of these problems was due to a poor installation. When i give a customer a free estimate to replace their aging furnace or a/c, i let them decide between a Trane or a Goodman. Goodman wins 90% of the time. Why should narrow minded ranting asswipes chose what system a customer buys?
Once the check clears ????? you ass clown. back up your work
This is some great saturday morning entertainment! Nice to have something funny to read since the old lady and kids woke up in a bad mood!:)
wow coming from a Goodman dealer lol 1st off Ducane is made by Lennox not Carrier 2nd they are the #2 seller because there "cheap" i will put up a Ducane against any furnace on the market and i will win because i will do a heat loss and use a ductulator for duct sizing according to CFM and static pressure i would also use a 95% 2 stage with a ECM motor!!! wanna try me??? lol

The way to eliminate the other 10% is to ask the contractors how they came up with the unit they are proposing. If they reply, because it is the size you have now move on to the next guy.
I would also write some specifications that must be followed, if you do not you will get the least possible installation. The basic specifications should include an easily (from the outside of the heater cabinet) means to change the filter, and these new items, gas shut off valve, a disconnect switch, and flue pipe from the heater to the chimney. A permit only if the township will send out a knowledgeable inspector, if they are sending out a dufus, then the permit fee is a tax, and worthless.
