Firstly, you folks provide great service here.....thank you
I was hoping to bask in your knowledge and expertise about gas furnaces and air conditioners. We are going to put a new furnace and central air conditioner in our Rental home. The home has the original Lennox furnace from 1961. It still works fine, but I know there are more efficient models available now and we're concerned about future safety issues. The home has never had central air.
I have two bids from HVAC contractors. One is for Amana equipment...the Amana AMH95 two stage multiple speed furnace and the Amana ASX13 air conditioning unit. The other bid is from a Rheem dealer for the Rheem Classic series 90 plus two stage upflow furnace and the Rheem 13AJL Series a/c unit.
Anything good or bad about Amana and Rheem and particularly these units would help? Should I look at different manufacturers? I understand a big part of this is the installation. Any information you could provide would be helpful. When I look at all the literature and specs, my eyes glaze over.
Thanks in advance.
