It's always difficult to know as a unit gets older whether to repair or replace. Typically a furnace will last 15-20 years if well taken care of. You are at 20 years now, so the question is more of a financial one. Can you afford the new furnace? If you can, you are probably better to put your money into a new unit with a ful warranty.
I'm not sure how he can install a furnace for $1800. Most furnaces alone run around $900-1100 just for the furnace alone not allowing for labor, and any other things such as sheet metal work, but yes, Carrier is a good brand.
Yes, good luck! Thanks for using Just Answer and please don't forget to rate my service as that's how experts get paid (thanks in advance for any bonus left). Otherwise experts work at their own time and expense. Feel free to post back with any additional questions.
