Which Lennox Brand is best?

StigwortNovember 3, 2012

OK, so I think I will go with one of the following "Lennox" models/quotes, noting that I won't be choosing an R22 coil!

Any recommendations on Merit vs Aire-flow vs Concord?

1. 80%, 70K, $3,250, Lennox, MERIT ML180UH070P36A, Coil: CX-34-31 R22

2. 80% ?K, $3,700, Lennox, AIRE-FLO 80AF1D070P12A, Coil: AC24AE1A COUNTERFLOW EVAPORATOR COIL

3. 80%, 70K, $3,100, Lennox, Concord, Coil: R410 ready

Why 80% eff furnaces?

Your location?

Size of home and size of existing furnace?

Price includes new outside AC condenser or are you keeping existing?

Hi- thanks for the followup: 80% because it is a condo unit, and venting via PVC would be problematic. Location: MA. Unit is 850 sq ft. We are keeping the existing AC unit but likely need to replace the coil as it is in the base of the downflow furnace.

Hi: I think it is around 90BTU. It is a Bryant downflow from 1963.
