    Why do people argue with me?

    By what can be read on here. Most units are the same. Just the quality of install, if I've read any of the posts right. Obviously a 2 stage is better than a single stage. And a 90% is better than an 80% furnace. But apples to apples, they are the same to a degree, most utilize the same parts and are interchangeable to a point. And oh yeah, it is fun to argue. At least you can fight back with some intelligence.

    They don't really market themselves as the same.

    This is true. I do sometimes even disagree with myself for the same results. Sometimes it gets out of hand though and I get a little fight club thing going

    Sorry, I can't disagree with you now

    You are correct that overall it is all pretty much the same stuff, but we can do slight features and benefits comparisons to differentiate what we expect to receive more money for.

    Still, every brand has comparable stripped down systems and systems with more features and benefits.

    For we who need to work on them, sometimes the stripped down systems are preferred

    I agree, if I've got a busy day going with not much end in site. I like base models. The last thing I want to see is that old Lennox 2 speed sitting in front of me, the one that has more relays than a telephone switching station.

    Nope, cause then I just have to go back and face it another day. The good thing about it is that if you need any parts, you have about a 50/50 chance you'll be ordering something for that monster. The thing about those units is that they don't die very easily.

    This is true they just dont seem to die. I have a few of those retangular ones arround and the good thing about them is you can usualy get low or high speed going till the parts come in.

    First one i ever saw kick my but for 4 hours and it was just the time delay.
    talk about over thinking witch is easly done with them things.

    I also like it when you came accross one of those old trane varitable speed compressors from the eighties wohoooooo time killers

    I know that Goodman has their own filter for my ARUF air handler but I haven't seen it. How does this "filter section panel" differ from a typical 1" pleated filter? How does it fit better in the rack?

    Thanx.
