Hello all and thanks again for all responses. I have previously posted and have been getting quotes for replacement of my central a/c heater in Phila. I have received quotes from York, Lennox, Ruud and American Standard so far. Some quotes have been from independent contractors (solo truck), some manufacturer web site connected with multiple trucks. Unless I am blown out of the water by one more quote from a carrier dealer today it comes down right now to an
#1 American Standard Cutomer care dealer-6 trucks
X dollars with 10 year factory warranty
#2-Ruud independent solo truck-did alot of what is expressed on this site a contractor should do for quote-son-in-law of friend his business not side work-in business several years
waiting on coil #
2.2% less than #1-offering 5 years labor from him-I know he could go off map anytime
Is there anywhere that an consumer could purchase an extended labor warranty that is good?
Pro's and con's of either system and best choice for piece of mind?
