I live in Alberta, Canada and have recent obtained 3 quotes for the the replacement of my furnaces. I have a two story 3000 sq. ft. home built in the 70's. I am replacing two Lennox funaces - a 130 BTU and a 105 BTU - that were installed when the house was built in 1978. I am looking at high efficiency units. There is no AC as I am close to the mountains and it would only be needed a few days a year.
The low bid is from the firm that orignally installed the furnaces being replaced. They also installed the funaces at my last home. In both cases, they ran relatively trouble free, for me at least. I replaces a fan motor on the furnace here about 3 years ago. My last home required a valve replacement once.
They have bid Maytag M1010 Series furnaces and offer a price $xxx less than the other two bids. The alternate bids propose Lennox G61V and Amana AMV9 furnaces. Is there anything that justifies the extra cost of the other bids?
Thoughts and input are appreciated.
