When you are choosing a new furnace for your home, it is important to do plenty of research on furnace companies before you make your decision. If you have narrowed down your furnace decision to a choice between a Bryant furnace or a Lennox furnace, you will need to know the pros and cons of each system. Here is a short guide that you can use during your research.
Great Fuel Economy
Long Lasting Unit
Excellent Customer Service
Poor Circuit Board Design
High Priced Replacement Parts
Only a 5 Year Warranty on Parts
Runs Very Quietly
Long Lasting Unit
Long Wait for Replacement Parts
Too Many Repairs Needed
Many Problems Stated with Heat Exchanger
When you are comparing two Furnace companies, it is important to look at the warranties that each of them offer. Choose one that has an excellent warranty that will cover both parts and labor. The warranty should also be quite long since most furnaces are built to last at least 20 years. If your warranty is under 5 years, then you might need to look for another company.
In addition to getting a furnace with a good warranty, you will need to hire a reputable contractor to install the unit. Many furnace problems are the result of poor installation. If you have contractor who does not do a good job, then you may have high priced problems with your furnace for years to come.
Many customers say that comparing Bryant and Lennox furnaces is like comparing apples to apples. Both furnace companies have been around for a long time and provide some furnaces that are very high quality.
Before you make your decision, be sure that you talk to people who own both types of furnaces so that you can get a good idea of what you are in for. Keep in mind, though, that many furnace problems are the result of poor maintenance or installation, while you are making your comparisons. It may come down to which contact person you have the most confidence in. All in all, you should trust your instinct.
