I was hoping to get some professional opinions on some furnace options that I am considering...
We are converting from oil to gas and we have chosen to go with a DC variable speed furnace with an AFUE of 92% or greater.
I have had several quotes on a new furnace; the prices have ranged wildly but I have narrowed my choices down to three;
Goodman GMV95, 95% AFUE Variable-Speed gas furnace (cheapest price)
Lennox Elite Series G61V - 070, 94.1% AFUE Variable-Speed gas furnace (a couple hundred more)
York Affinity PV9B2N060UP11, 95% AFUE Variable-Speed gas furnace (most expensive by about 15% from cheapest)
I am wondering which furnace to get, I have heard good and bad about them all. I have also heard that it is the contractor who performs the work and not the equipment that makes the difference. That being said, no one performed a load calc., they all said that the btu for my house was between 60, 000 and 70, 000 (the difference being the furnace manufacturer and the increments that they use) I have checked them all out with the BBB and they either have no complaints or the complaints have been dealt with and they all stand by their product...
