    I live in NJ. You are colder where you are, but I have a hard time believing that for 1300 sq ft 70,000 btus is undersized.

    That is not an Amana thing, its standard. All of the hvac companies warranties require your to service the equipment regularly. My 18 year old system I am having replaced was serviced every year...

    For all the info I found while deciding, it wasn't even close, Goodman easily. Lifetime Compressor and HX. Unit replacements not just replacing the parts of those major components either if they fail.

    Well the Best Bryant should qualify for the $1500 tax break, that entire system. On the Lennox System the G61MPV furnace qualifies for the $1500 tax break. I did a lot of research when deciding on...

    The tax credit will work similar to child tax credit and hope credit. It will reduce your tax liability, but you can't get a refund on those things. If you are over on your taxes, where you are owed...

    Thats a laughable statement. Both are 2 stage furnaces. Both use similar components. HXs are different, the Amana version has maybe the best HX on the market. The GMV/AMV are both over 95% AFUE...

    That sucks. In NJ, you are told before any work is done, whether or not you will get any rebates.
  17. Modulating furnaces, are they all the same?

    I see that Rheem, York, and Lennox have modulating furnaces. Rheem has 5% steps and York/Lennox have 1% steps. Are they all the same or what makes them different. Is one better than the other? Just...

    Cool and unique. But what if you get a leak? That looks like it would be a nightmare. Leaky air for the most part can do no damage, but water is a totally different story.

    Hey I am a homeowner. But after doing my homework, if the Goodman is cheaper, which I suppose it is, that model GMV95 is a hell of furnace. There is very little argument that from top to bottom...

    You are right. I don't know how much more a CZH model would cost, but I am sure the furnace install by itself will get me the full $1500. Is a single stage that bad though?
