I was searching the internet for a new electric furnace and found some
great prices all over the web. I called Goodman and York and they said
warranty would be honored as long as the purchase was made from a
Here was one website that looked pretty nice and had decent prises on
Ummm? Why would a licensed contractor sell you a furnace that he is not
installing? He would be liable for the warranty paperwork even if you
installed it yourself. Sounds like a pain in the ass that thinking
contractors would avoid. Also the price he would have to sell it to you
would include cost, shipping,profit and taxes. I wonder what the
shipping costs would be from an Internet Marketeer?
Don, when he gets his furnace, he will play hell getting somebody to install
it... and chances are that whoever they do find for an installer, will not
be able to pull a permit and have it inspected. You have to be licensed for
that. Then there is this little matter of home-owners insurance.... if it
wasn't installed by a licensed company and inspected, it voids their
homeowners insurance. But.... we are just ignorant, dumb ol HVAC company
owners and techs... what do we know.
