Lately I've been seeing everyone saying what the best on the market now is.
I don't see it. Makes me wonder, when I see Heil, Goodman etc. listed in here as the best. I don't think so, not when Carrier, Trane and a few others put all the effort into making a better one and the others main deal is upgrading their Dumb Valve. ooops smart valve... Sorry Go out and look at some units and you CAN'T TELL ME THAT YOU CAN'T SEE A DIFFERENCE EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IS IN THAT FURNACE!!! Many a time I have taken a customer out and had him look at the difference and he takes that Trane after seeing them. He may not know how to even work the thermostat but he can see a quality difference. This comes without sayin a word about comfort R Which is Trane only. etc. etc. It seems that years ago when the popular thing was to block off an orifice to lower the btu's on the furnace turned out they don't recommend that because its hard on the heat exchanger and long behold some company's two stage furnaces block off two orifices to get the low fire. Sorry this is WRONG IN MY BOOK!!! Goodman comes up with a longer run in their vent motor which is good... but opens up the trap which is bad. Cabinets are shorter so ya don't notice as easy the weak cabinet. etc. etc. etc. If you keep saying its the install that hurts em....which sometimes it is sometimes it aint..... Trane And Carrier should last forever with a good install. They all break down but some break down a lot more and you guys know it. But of course this is just my opinion.. And I know that they'll be pouncing but it gets hard to swallow time after time your telling these people that come here that don't know about furnaces and your sending them down a wrong trail. I could make a lot more money selling these cheaper furnaces to these people that don't know that there is a BIG price difference and sell them at a HUGE profit but I don't want them coming back in a year, ready to lynch me. I sell them..... but I tell them what they are getting. Sorry if I'm stepping on toes here.
