Are you thinking about installing a new furnace? The following price considerations can help you determine the best furnace for your home, and save money too.
A new air conditioner can make the summer months bearable or improve the efficiency of an older unit. But how much does a new A/C cost to install?
Need an HVAC company to repair your furnace or ductwork? Read tips for hiring a good heating company, and learn what homeowners say goes wrong when you don’t.
No one can tell you what another contractor will charge. There is no one set price for heating and air-conditioning equipment installation. One of the major factors that affect your price is its size. No one can tell you what size equipment you’ll need without doing a load analysis on the home. That calculation essentially determines the insulation value of the home, i.e... What is the heat gain of the home, what are some other prevailing factors like room equipment, solar gain, or natural shading? You can compare prices between contractors to gauge what your cost would be between contractors, but this is a little tricky to do. Let me explain a little more. Let's say you get an installation quote of $5050.00 from contractor “A” who employs three technicians and operates two trucks. He also runs his operation from home. Contractor “B” charges $6200.00 to do the same job but has 10 employees and 5 trucks. He works out of a rental unit and offers his people a little bit better of a benefit package to recruit highly motivated workers. Everything else being equal (equipment size, SEER rating, furnace efficiency, brand name and additional material—other things that affect the price), is either one of these contractors defrauding you? No, their overhead is different. All these things play into a company’s labor rate. Just be aware of your expectations when it comes to performing any kind work in your home. If you want to pay an extremely low-inexpensive price below the average installation cost in your area then you are highly likely to get the quality of work that comes with that cost. Remember cheaper is not better!
The furnaces are both good. They come with the same warranty. More importantly it is the installation process that is most important. Both of these furnaces need to be setup properly as they both tend to be particular if installed incorrectly.
I will say that I am a York Certified comfort Expert. I have in the past been a Trane Dealer. I used to dislike York, but since Johnson Controls bought them, they have improved drastically. Since Ingersollrand bought Trane they have improved slightly, but I am not impressed.
The differences in both are as follows (these are both top of the line form theier manufacturers):
The Trane has a 95% Efficiency The York is 98% efficient.
The Trane has 2 stages of heating the York has 100 stages of heating.
Both systems have variable speed motors with different modes, Trane has Comfort R and York has ClimaTrak, both pretty much the same. Setup of the dipswitches/jumpers are the most importnant and vary by system size and your climate.
The Trane has an external trap and is either upflow or downflow. The York is 4 way compatible with an internal trap.
The Trane has a nicer furnace cabinet, but most of the time the furnace is hidden and is irelevant.
Some Trane units are made in Monterey, Mexico. All York units are Made in Witchita, Kansas or Norman , Oklahoma. (some interanl components are made overseas in both units, but all Yorks are assembled in USA).
Depending on your installation companies relationship, then the support they get from the manufacturer differs. I have found that if you buy alot of Trane you get good service, if you do not, then service is not that great. The same may be said about York, but so far I have great support from York. York will work with the smaller companies more than Trane will (my opinion). Again, I have sold, installed and repaired from both manufacturers so I have knowledge in both. I also used to dislike York. If you are in the trade, I invite you to look at the new York line of systems. You will may be impressed.
I think both products offer the best furnaces available, compared to other brands. Depending on who installs it is most important as well as their relationship with the manufacturers. Both good products. I hope that helps.

The electrician showed up on time and was polite and professional. An assistant came later to help and he was great too.
They worked hard and I was pleased with the work they did.

That's my unsolicited review and I'm sticking to it.
The Job Was Never Completed.
valve WITHOUT A CAP ONTO THE END OF THE GAS PIPE ! Dumb Idiots.
Over time, I kept smelling this natural gas, lots of gas was leaking down there into my basement area.
I had to call the NICOR GAS COMPANY Emergency Line. I told them I had been smelling gas in my basement for a few weeks.
NICOR found a leaking 65 year old shutoff valve, which NICOR removed, and then Nicor Service capped off the end of the pipe with a "pipe cap" in accordance with the NFPA Gas Code. ***** Long Story:
The owner of
On 08-14-14 I entered into a written and signed agreement with LINK for the following goods and services:
1)) Remove my old Furnace and Ductwork and dispose of the same.
2)) Install New Ductwork and New Furnace for $ 5,100 Dollars. A $ 450 portion of the above mentioned total of $ 5,100 amount was to install some additional ductwork up to my second floor house.
The written and signed agreement between myself and the " Contractor " was on "Professional Looking Forms" that were provided by
Contractor agreed in writing to have the work completed " FINISH SEPTEMBER 3rd" over a 5 day working period consisting of a Wed. Thurs. Wed. Thurs. and Wed. time frame.
As the time of our signing of the documents arrived, contractor/
I went to my Credit Union and obtained a Cashiers Check for the amount of $ 2,800 and gave it to
The 1st day of work, Wed. the removal of the old furnace went well. It took 3 men a total of 7.5 man hours. ( 2 1/2 hours each )
The 2nd day Thursday, only
No workers showed up on this day, and no work was performed. It was a day that was wasted.
INTERESTING NOTE: Right after the 2nd day Thursday discussion as I mention here,
This is a scam for sure I was thinking in my mind.
I returned a voice message to LINK and told him "We are going to keep it
I never did hand over any more money to
The 3rd day Wed. , 11 Total Man Hours of work was performed this day by 2 workers. (5 1/2 hours each)
They beat on my limestone walls and brick walls in my basement with 16 ounce
I knew at this moment in time that this is not a real company. They didn't even posses the most
On this day they made Quantity = 2 1/2 cold air return boxes. They never actually completed the 3 total return air boxes that they started to build.
NOTE: Later, when I hired a reputable HVAC Company to complete the job, the replacement contractor had to rework the cold air return boxes because the "Grills" would not fit onto them.
They were not measured correctly and were not bent over properly at 90 degrees, sharp.
The 4th Day Thurs. On this work day, 2 workers worked a total of 5.5 Man Hours (( 2 1/4 hours each)) attempting to clean 2 old supply ducts that went from the basement to the 2nd floor and were to remain in service.
Then without warning, the workers announced that "
At that point they stopped all work, and they both left the job for the rest of the day.
Day 5 Wed.
I HAD TO FIRE
Our written agreement said specifically . . . START August 20th , and FINISH September 3rd
My small family has been Scammed Out Of $ 2,800 Dollars here.
Coy was professional and knowledgeable, and said that I would be better served with a traditional furnace system rather than the ductless mini-split option (two other companies suggested the mini-split would be the best option). I agreed with Coy; I was concerned about air circulation with a ductless mini-split and figured some rooms would end up being substantially different temperatures. Coy gave me a competitive price quote for the furnace option, and we decided to hire his company.
Installation went fairly well. The work crew used a sawzall to cut and install a hatch into our attic, which was closed off. They ran electrical and gas pipes up to the attic, and installed the furnace/blower unit. Ducts and vents running into the four different rooms of the house were installed, along with a basic thermostat. The system seems to work great, and our tenant is happy with it.
Only complaint was that when the work crew finished, they disappeared without letting me know and left the house unlocked. I let Coy know about this, and he was apologetic. No harm was done at the end of the day. The crew also originally told me they were going to run 5 ducts (2 to the largest room in the house) rather than the 4 they actually did. I don't have a problem with this, as the house seems OK with the 4 ducts that were done.
Overall pretty pleased, and would hire again.
