I'm a homeowner with very little to zero HVAC experience. I also am on my apartment complex's co-op board and many of our residents are now looking to replace their HVAC systems which are 40 years old and are asking for recommendations about various systems. Our original units are Lennox and they've lasted pretty well over the years. It is my understanding that Lennox bought Ducane, but they are still distinctly different systems/products. Is that true?
If so, can someone please explain what those fundamental differences are? (i.e. price? (I'm not asking how much they cost... just is one more expensive or noticably less than the other);
does one last longer than the other?
Is the warranty longer on one versus the other?;
Is one easier or less expensive to serivce than the other?, etc.
Thank you in advance for your help.
