Westinghouse offers gas and oil furnaces. They feel your investment in a furnace is of the upmost importance. You should feel more than indoor comfort; you should know you are investing in a product that will perform when you need it most. What do Westinghouse furnace reviews have to say?
As is the case with any product line, you’ll read reviews of praise and reviews by not so happy consumers. First, let’s take a look at the line of furnaces available. You can purchase a fully modulating, various speed, and fixed speed gas furnace, or an oil furnace.
Westinghouse offers a 20 year warranty on their heavy-gauge aluminized steel heat exchangers. A Quality Pledge and 10 year limited parts warranty is also available.
Westinghouse furnace reviews reveal a vivid 50/50 consumer satisfaction rating. Some consumers feel the units are rather difficult for a technician to work on, causing repairs and maintenance to be a headache. On the variable speed models, the fan tends to die quickly, causing the unit to kick off. Consumers say they usually plan on a replacement fan every 2 to 3 years.
A few consumers complain of their unit failing within the first year. In most of these cases they experienced trouble starting the unit manually, and it would not kick on automatically. About half of these cases said the problem was fixed with a technician visit, while the other half said they returned the unit in favor of trying another brand.
Several consumers living in areas with long, cold winters have been thoroughly satisfied with Westinghouse products. They claim flawless performance, and the additional perk of their gas bill being reduced. They also say the installers were a breeze to worth it, which made the entire experience all the more satisfying.
Several consumers describe their units as, “quiet and reliable,” noting that proper installation lent itself to ensuring their units were reliable and ran as quietly as possible.
Westinghouse furnace reviews indicate a solid product. Perks to purchasing their units include their extensive warranty, which is hard to beat, and their local availability. You can find a local dealer almost anywhere.
