    Re: high efficient furnaces

    I installed a Utica 91% eff. condensing boiler in my house 4 years ago. I got a $1000 rebate at the time so I basically paid what I would have for a standard boiler. The only problem I've had is when the fan kicks on it's somewhat noisy (jacket vibrates a little). Overall so far I'm very satisfied.

      high efficent furnaces are good and work fine if serviced properly .but not many customers do this they don't worry about it until furnace quites working.

        Re: high efficient furnaces

        I bought my home in 1978, the furnace was a normal one put in new in 1972.{fast forward} In 1998 my furnace died, at the time my winter bills ran $230 month and in the summer they were about $210 because of window air conditioners. I had a new Bryant 92% furnace and central air installed with my existing duct work. Over the past 11 1/2 years, I have replaced the contactor 3 times and the capacitor 2 times in the air unit. These items I took care of myself. We have changed the filter every 2 months since the system was new. This past fall, the furnace would not come on. Due to medical problems I am unable to work on things like this anymore, so I called the company that installed the system back in 98. The ignitor was bad, took him 15 minutes to find and replace the problem. Cost me $160, I am only pissed at the fact that I am unable to take care of my own problems at this time. Our home is NEVER cold in winter and NEVER hot in summer. Oh and last month we had snow on the ground most of the time and the temperature never got above freezing outside. Our bill was $164. Nobody can ever tell me that the high efficiancy heating and cooling equipment are BS. I have saved more that $100 a month for the past 11 1/2 years on an investment of $3200 at that time.

          If it makes you feel better, my company would have charged WAY more than that!

            I understand the parts mark ups and service run charges, just gets me that all my life I have done these things for myself. Now I have to hire them done. Maybe it's time to start my grandsons further education. LOL

              You've got to be kidding.

              100% markup on the igniter and 1 hour labor. I'd change them all day long for $120+tax and make a mint.
