Briefly, the furnace in one of my rental houses went dead. I called a local contractor for repair and he commented that the furnace is broken and need to be replaced. Since the house is about 30 years old I guess he may be right. Then he gave a quote for a Payne PG8JAA048090 model with installation total about $3500. I know Payne is a low price model, but is this reliable model? Or should I ask for a Bryant or Carrier, supposely better?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Is the quote reasonable or too expensive? I am in SF Bay Area, California. The house is about 2000 sqft 2 story average quality.

Russ here. UCP makes Carrier ,Bryant,Payne and Tempstar. Payne is a very good furnace. I have installed several with no problems. For your area that price is about right. Carrier or Bryant will be about 500 more for the same size furnace. You can also get a few quotes from other companies. Just request a free quote. Best to shop around. Check a few prices. I think someone will beat that price. Anymore questions I am here. If not just rate me 3 stars or higher or I do not get paid. You ask the right questions. Thanks Russ
