1st time buying a furnace
I just moved into a new house (2300 sq ft ranch with finished basement, in Wisconsin) with the original Carrier furnace that is 18 years old. I received a letter indicating that the secondary heat exchanger could be faulty and replaced free of charge or the money applied to a new furnace. I will definitely go for a new furnace. I have one quote for a carrier infinity 59TN6-100, 96% AFUE, 100,000 BTU, Pro 6000 Honeywell thermostat and a Carrier Performance LBP humidifier for $4,100 all labor included. Same company quoted the Carrier infinity 59MN7-100, infinity touch screen intelligent thermostat, same humidifier for $5,350. How do these furnaces compare to the competition? Are these good prices? Is it worth spending the extra money on the higher end furnace? Thank you.
