We are looking to put in a furnace and central air at our cabin (current is electic heat) and replace a set at my father-in-law's house. Being in the upper midwest (Minnesota and Western Wisconsin), we are more interested in the high efficiency direct vent combustion furnaces.
While doing some research on-line, we have also talked with some installers in preparation to getting some quotes. One thing I wanted to check out was a comment that once you went to the higher end furnaces with direct vent combustion, the components were all the same.
For instance, the York, Luxaire, and Coleman ones or the Carrier, Bryant, and Payne ones were all coming down the same conveyor belt and a different sticker or emblem was slapped on them.
Is there truth or any portion of truth to that statement?
Thanks in advance for the help!
