Help on choice and cost of furnace
My Chicago home is a split level, 1600 sq. ft. Furnace located in sub-basement. Sub-basement, main floor, and upper floor are warm but basement is always cold.
Replacing 25 yr old furnace about 60% efficient still working. A/C is newer and is 3 ton. Not being replaced.
First quote obtained Rheem RGRM,75,000 BTU, 95 %,variable speed
Aprilaire model 700 humidifier
Total $4275 less tax credit & Rheem rebate
optional $150 media cleaner
Installer in business since 1952, part of Home Depot program
Lot more than I expected to spend. Need some advice. Please help.
