I will tell you what. If you can find me a Trane, 90% high efficiency,DC motor 2 stage with VFD, efficient 2 level stage burners, deep heat exchanger w/ 25year warranty, Humidifier,13 SEER A/C, AND
a FULL 10 year parts and labor installer warranty with a 1hr response time or $150 check, INSTALLED-- I will give YOU personally $500!
Mind you i could of went with a 10 seer CHEAPO furnace for $2000.
Ooooooh.....send the cash. I have 3 people that do this for a living. Naaaaah, that's not a fair fight........I get the friends and family discount.
I do know that if you can get the installer to show up at 3am when the fooker goes out, he MUST live close by and never sleep. Either that or it doesn't cover certain times of the day like a cell phone plan, especially in Chicago traffic.
I did, however, look up pricing on this stuff.....RUUD 100k BTU 94% w/ 3 ton 12 seer A/C unit costs about $2800 online........that labor cost really sucks!
BTW, American Standard owns all the brand names like Trane, Ruud, Lenox.....so pricing should be comparable.
