Re: Best HVAC Units on the Market 2020


With the equipment and materials often constituting far less than half of the total installed cost, even a 50% increase to get better quality wouldn't be that significant.



It's so much cheaper to pay a few hundred more on a furnace upfront and have it last 25-30 years instead of 15 with repairs required along the way.

Too bad.

Never jump out safeties - especially pressure switches - on a furnace for testing with fuel supply on; use a meter. Do not troubleshoot with live line voltage present unless there's no alternative.

A 50% equipment cost increase, also means a 7% part cost increase for repairs down he road.

Lots of furnaces made 10 years ago, will still be operating 10 years from now.


Back when things were made in the USA. And quality was a priority. Those things still broke down. I remember fixing them.
