Heat pumps have many advantages, but most homeowners aren't sure how much a heat pump costs to install and operate, compared to normal central air HVAC systems.
Learn how to know when it's time to replace your furnace, and to determine what type will replace it. Expect to see higher efficiency and lower heating bills.
Heating and air conditioning service professionals share tips to keep your HVAC system in great shape and protect yourself from scammers.
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.

Then I remembered that several years ago i had a leak in my yard and ARS Rooter Service came out and gave me an estimate for that job which was also ridiculous. They wanted $300 to dig a hole to look for the leak. They told me often they had to dig 3 holes (@ $300 a piece) before they would find the leak so we were already up to $900 with no repairs included. I called
It seems this company has a difficult time managing their time. It is good we learned that up front before hiring them.

job with their cleaning & vacuuming system. They also checked all the ducts for condition/stability, after 55 years of use.
