When we received the keys to our new place back in January we spent the very first stay sleeping on a mattress in the empty house. Both of us woke up groggy and realized that the furnace had kept us up all night...
After having one tech come over (the very first day) to make sure the furnace (Keepright N9MP2075) was functioning properly, and then another to confirm and turn the blower down to the slowest speed, we spent the first month waking up early with the furnace. Then after I programmed the thermostat to start heating later in the morning, we would sleep but wake up to a cold house. You get the picture...
It's a new house, still under 1 year's warranty.
Furnace techs say it must be the ducting since it goes directly from the furnace in the basement straight up to our bedroom on 2nd floor (two floors up, but the noise is just as loud as if you're standing next to the furnace!). Then, I'm not sure if this is the case, but the ducting guys say they can't do anything and that it must be the furnace LOL
Let me get to my simple question(s):
- As far as I've looked into it a two-stage/variable speed furnace from Trane (XV95) is far more than the current Keepright (N9MP2075, which we have the option to buy and currently rent), are there any mulit-stage/variable speed QUIET furnaces that are more affordable out there?
- Could anyone recommend a good tech around Gatineau QC Canada region (Ottawa/Outaouais), if there are any cunucks lurking here
Thanks. Hoping to get more sleep next winter,
