less-common furnace brand?

Anyone hear of Gibson furnaces? One heating guy has given us an estimate based on a small, single stage Gibson for our 1700 sq. ft. house. (I am planning to get estimates from other vendors with other brands.)

RE: less-common furnace brand?

Be aware Gibson is an old appliance brand whose name only is used in Nordyne's umbrella appliance HVAC brands. Not very familiar with them. I personally would stay clear but others have had success. Usually considered a second tier brand under a dealer's main brand.

I would suggest looking at Rudd/Rheem HVAC. Not always cutting edge but solid equipment that is underrated and overlooked in the residential HVAC market.

Perhaps others can offer their opinions.
