    Looks like they put the 80% furnace in a condensing furnace cabinet. 69-74 db is only really going to matter if the furnace is near a living area. I could have used them in a few homes where I had to put the furnace in a hall closet.

    No one has said it yet, but in the climate of Dallas and the prospect of nat gas prices going thruthe roof in the next few yers (not to mention now), yu likely have AC - why not consider a heat pump? Would bet yu money you will be $$$ ahead within 4 years.

    Where do you idiots come from? Just what in particular do you have against any of these products? Be specific...if you know enough about furnaces to specific that is.

    About the heat pump, that's a good suggestion, however the winter here in Dallas gets very cold sometimes even though it is not that long. So the heating capability of a heat pump might not be adequate to heat a large house.

    Just an update, I got 4 bids from Trane, Lennox, Carrier and Frigidair. Trane is the most expensive, and the Frigidair is the least expensive (For a 5 ton system). I am leaning torward the Carrier bid since it appears to be the most value between cost and Brand name (No offence to any other Brand lover!) since this topic (Brand picking) seems to be controversial.

    The term "junk" is a bashing term. If you don't know any better, well, you should have just learned.

    Don't know what a "per-fab" house is, but I see a lot of those "name" brand furnaces you mentioned in some pretty high end homes.
    Now don't you feel bad for calling me names!
    You haven't been here long, have you?
