Got a couple quotes today after my armstrong 90 decided to shut down for good.
One was for a Heil 95% AFUE 100,000 BTU installed for $3200.
The other was a Ruud AchieverÃ¯Â¿Â½ Series 90 PlusÃ¯Â¿Â½ 95% AFUE Upflow Gas Furnace 90,000BTU for $3800.
No duct work. Just taking out the old and putting in the new.
My house is 2100 square foot built in 1997.
The Heil guy could not tell me the model just that it would be here tommorrow. I didnt like that. He didnt look at the duct work just assumed 100,000 BTU's is what I need because that is what I have in the armstrong.
This is for NY and trust me its cold here. The Ruud guy said looked at my vents and duct work and walked around the house. Calculated my square footage and said I need only 90,000BTUs. This Ruud would be single stage. No other tests were conducted.
It's cold here :) I know a couple companies to avoid but no one can really recommend anybody good. I have a friend who used the Ruud guy and he has no problems so far.
Are these quotes outrageous or decent?
