    Either furnace will serve your purposes well. Most important is to be comfortable with the installing contractor.

    My only suggestion is to ask them to install supply air for the burner from outside. Sometimes referred to as two-pipe vent system. Let the burner breath outside air.

    Ferguson owns Lyon&Conklin. In this area they sell Trane.

    Guess he started his own company what, about 18 to 20 months ago.

    But no, he's not my competition.

    Wolseley Plc. owns Ferguson, which owns Lyon Conklin & Co. Inc., but Wolseley North America division made the decision to keep the name Lyon Conklin separate from Ferguson. Possibly because of the brands they sell. I know I can't use my Ferguson account to buy anything from Lyon Conklin, and they're run as totally separate companies.

    Goodman or Coleman...........I'd chose the Coleman myself, but what is more important is the contractor doing the work. A couple of statements from your post seem fishy, as others have said.........

    I would advise you to get at least one other contractor out there to see who's stories match up and then do some research, educate yourself about the products and systems you are buying.........call you local building inspectors and ask about the contractors, also call the BBB and ask the contractors for references, find out who their supplier is and call them as well.

    Make sure you get a Cert of Insurance and a signed contract from them. Make it clear you will not pay until the inspections are done and the permits are signed off on by the town. If they balk at this or try to weasel around it, don't hire them, call someone else.

    Remember, you can put a million dollar system in your house, but if it's installed wrong, it won't work.

    Thats common to have multiple compnies owned by one company, but all customer accounts are seperate.
    Makes it easier for accounting.(Reduces financial risk also)
    Too many other benefits to list.

    The company that is selling the Goodman also sells Carrier, but they are recommending the Goodman because of the cost difference.
    If your in pdx oregon, then i think i know the dealer you are referring to. Is quality of installation your top priority or is it price?

    Quality and price are both important, but I wouldn't take the lowest bid just to save a little money. I would rather pay more and have a quality install.
