    Rheem/Ruud make great equipment, as well as the best modulating furnace currently on the market. I do not know how well it will compare with Nordyne's mod when it comes out.

    You need to get estimates from contractors in your area that handle different brands.

    Then come back and ask questions you may have about each estimate. As far as are they proposing same line equipment.

    also be aware that any branded erv, hrv, and most electric and non-electric air cleaners are made by the same company in canada and labeled for the manufacturers. Only Trane and Carrier's top of the line electronic cleaners are thier own.

    without price - can I rate them in perceived cusotmer service and price - or is that not allowed

    You can.

    But you need full model numbers for anyone to make equipment comparisons.

    I personally like Carrier. They are always on the leading edge of the industry. They also have the only air cleaner that claims to "catch and kill" influenza. But like everyone has stated, the best system, installed wrong is a piece of crap. Call the manufacturer of whatever name brand you are offered and ask who they recommend. They typically recommend good, honest companies that have meet a certain amount of training hours on their products. good luck
