    Hey guys,

    While I am waiting for the gas company to run their gas line, I remembered something one of the contractors said when he was looking at my current heat pump system.

    So I had my mind all made up on what furnace I was going to go with, a single-stage 90 percenter Trane to replace my dying heat pump.

    So say you are correct, then what is a consumer to do? Mind you, I am not just relying on the BBB to make the decision - I am checking the companies references as well and talking to as many people...

    jonm,

    I agree that the BBB is not the holy grail of finding reputable companies, just one more tool to use.

    Our local chapter has a few criteria to give a business a satisfactory rating. They...

    maxair,

    Yeah, really professional, huh. I didn't inquire any further than taking his bid and saying thanks for your time and have a nice day.

    I would not be surpised if it was a scam, and I...

    irishmist, I think your comments are largely misguided.

    It makes me wonder how many people buy into this type of stuff... Obviously a few because I was looking (and laughing) at the Hall of Shame pics yesterday. I think this guy would probably end up...

    Good point about less crap getting on the coil. I may be a little low on my 1" costs, but I can usually get 1" pleated filters for a few dollars each.

    I think for under two hundred extra it is...

    So another question about a new install...

    I am seeing options on my bid to install a 4" filter instead of a 1" filter.

    Well today the last bid came in for my replacement of the heat pump system with a conventional gas furnace and A/C. I have had 5 bids before this one, and this one was laughable.

    I also forgot to mention that this model also has the optional outdoor temp sensor like the vision t-stat.

    If it helps, I just found my manual for it. It has the following terminals:

    Great, thanks guys. A large problem is the sales guys they send out to do the bids don't have a great knowledge of everything. I recently go 5 bids for the new system, and I got the weird feeling...
