I am planning to replace my furnace heater
It is a Bryant 63,000 BTU unit
The other option is to change out both the heater and split A/C with a new Bryant or Trane System

Only the high effieciency qualify for the tax break.

M Oglesby :

OK, put in the high efficiency in the quote. Also what are we talking about Bryant, Trane, etc

M Oglesby :

JACUSTOMER-bdpfdf3n- :

Quote 3ton 14 seer A/C with high efficiency furnace for the attic; also quote 2 ton 14 seer A/C with high efficiency furnace for the lower floor

Attic; High efficiency furnace w 3 ton 14 seer A/C $5600.00

M Oglesby :

lower floor; High efficiency furnace w 2 ton 14 seer A/C $5300.00

JACUSTOMER-bdpfdf3n- :

how do the systems compare Lenox vs Trane vs Bryant. Also, what warranties should I be looking for

M Oglesby :

Truthfully sir/madam all of them are practically the same. Especially when you are dealing with high efficiency equipment. They just have different names. Usually they all have 10 year parts warranty on them.

M Oglesby :

Either one of those would be a good buy.

M Oglesby :

My advise to you would be get the one of the three that is the cheapest price.

JACUSTOMER-bdpfdf3n- :

one last question. If a unit is 15 years old and has some holes on the heat exchanger, are we done and replace it, especially when everything A/C , heat etc still works?

M Oglesby :

If it is not causing any problems with the heat, I would not change it.

JACUSTOMER-bdpfdf3n- :

so Carbon Monoxide etc is not to worry?

M Oglesby :

Have your house checked for carbon monoxide.

JACUSTOMER-bdpfdf3n- :

yes yes never moves beyond zero despite calibration

M Oglesby :

You have no worries then

JACUSTOMER-bdpfdf3n- :

you are good; best!

M Oglesby :

The only advantage I see you will get from changing your system is lower cost on energy bills

JACUSTOMER-bdpfdf3n- :

how do i keep a copy of this chat

M Oglesby :

I really don't know. Sorry
