I've asked three HVAC companies to provide recommendations/bids on replacing a 27-year-old Rheem ac unit, which is facing some expensive parts replacements. One of the contractors has come back with an offer to replace our 12-year-old 80% Amana furnace as well with a "new" Amana AMV95. This will not only give us a more efficient furnace, it allows us to place the entire system in a more central location and provide much-improved air flow to two upstairs rooms on the southwest corner of the house which are currently very underserved.
My question involves the furnace selection. He says he got a special deal on several of these AMV95's, which is why he's able to give us what he says is a good price on the unit & installation. (By the way, I really like this guy. He has worked hard to come up with solutions for a somewhat tricky situation.)
Does the AMV95 have a good track record? Is it old technology? The only references I can find to it are from 2010 and before.
Thanks for any input you can provide!
