For the past month the husband and I have been getting quote to replace our furnace that is older than us.
We have narrowed it down to two bids. Both from good contractors. They stand behind their installation. Have good reviews and we have good feeling with both guys.
It boils down to the equipment. So here goes my question to all of you hvac experts. Which one is a better equipment. I know equipment+installation is what makes a good system. But given the same expertise and quality in installation, which one of these furnace is just plain built better.
Btw, both contractors quotes me for the same BTU, so I really just need equipment comparison, ie: quality, how easy it is to order parts, company customer service, etc.
We already have an AC, and not replacing that. the AC is 2 tons. and these furnaces are 3 tons. Actually all the furnace quotes I got are 3 tons. And they all said that it can be adjusted or something. So I am guessing this is common practice.
Anyways, these are the system I need help with.
1. carrier performance 96
2. trane xv95
Since we have been getting quotes for a while, we would like to decide very soon. Thus, any insights is greatly appreciated.
