I've been researching furnance for house in the midwest, about 1700SQF.
I am currently running a trane which i think is a 30+yrs old.
I had one estimate so for, wanted to learn if it was a good price.
The estimate is for comple install for a Lennox G61MPV-36B-070 Gas
Furnace and AC 13ACC 3.0 Ton Air 13 SEER. $4500 is that a good price ?
are those models good ? He said he will also include a electric air
filter for $395 if i sign by end of the month.
Any recomendations for other models ? I was looking around and see most
of the high efficeincey products from various vendors got good reviews.
I would appreciate any advice as this is a major investment for me and
a small fortune.
Yes but I would not pick an intaller that picks Goodman or Janitrol, or
pushes an 80%er unless it was south like Fla, you need to learn your
options as there are so many these days, Gone is the no option list and
80% AC motor deal.

Doesn't sound too far out, but those are famous last words ;-0.
One thing sticks out to me: After the end of the month, will
he cut the price by $395 or is there a different "freebie". It's
BS that it's "free" and it always get my ire up when I hear
"gotta hurry or..." crap like that. Honest or not, that turns
any deal into a hard-sell IMO.
Besides, you should have two to three more estimates before you
go making any decisions; you'll learn a LOT more from the
That scares me. He is more interested in the sale than your well being.
What happens after the end of the month? If he has a legitimate factory
deal that expires on 12/31, it may be legit. If he is just trying to get you
to sign, look for a better installer.
I don't sell Lennox, but it COULD be that they have some kind of rebate
program that ends December 31st.
I know we had a helluva run on Carrier equipment because they had that "Cool
Cash" rebate that expired on November 11th (why on THAT day I don't know).
Funny. I tried to google "Lennox Rebate" and look at this page:
Does this guy sound like a used car salesman or what??!!!
Thanks for the info.
The cleaner is not really free, he said he is gonna give me at cost,
which ever i pick, i picked this one which was the middle kind.
He said the estimate was good for a month. I had a friend over the day
the guy was there and he said, thats a sales man!
I scheduled a couple of more estimates, one from sears, another from a
trane dealer, i want to get an idea of what different brand contractors
have to offer. I might have a reem dealer give me an estimate also.
You are right, different estimates will give me a better idea, i don't
think i am gonna go with 20 different estimates, once i decide on a
brand, maybe, i might have another contract with the same brand give me
one more estimate, i am just unsure of what brand, i do understand the
point of having an installer that is good, but if the furnace has know
issues then i would be hesitant, like this guy did offer me a goodman,
but he preffered the Lenox.
This is my first house i bought and i am new to these things and I
really appreciate your advice, i just wish the warranty i got with the
house would just replaced it for me, but they won't till it is
it is working,
1 - i think it is not efficeint, bills to high
2- my neighbour recommended as he has a similar house and he is the
original owner 30+ years.
do you think i should wait, do you see benefit in waiting and let it
die on its own, i really want it to break on its so i can have it
repalced via the warranty!
Similar homes mean nothing when you are looking at heating and cooling
Warranty companies are no longer replacing units cause they break.
They nickle and dime YOU to death with the so called deductable.
Depends on what you can get it installed for. I mean, you wasted that money
on the home warranty.....
What did he include in his quote. When I got my furnace
and AC replaced I skipped right over all the quotes that
had a 2 or 3 line quote that they would replace with
model no xxx. The quotes I considered were the ones
that listed just what they would do.
