This is an important decision when purchasing a new furnace. Are you concerned about getting a bad brand installed in your home? Well don’t be. There are no furnaces out there that have a notorious reputation. What you need to look out for is the installer. If a quality brand of furnace is installed improperly by your installer, your furnace will perform unsatisfactory. %99 of customer complaints are due to the quality of installation and not manufacturer defects.
If your current furnace just doesn’t keep your home warm in the winter then it was probably installed incorrectly. The furnace size is chosen by the square footage of your home. If your installer puts in a furnace that’s too small it won’t heat the home properly.

Let’s Compare Furnace Brands – Trane Versus Westinghouse
Not sure if we should spend the extra money on Trane. I’ve heard that Westinghouse furnace and heat pumps are good quality and cheaper. I would like to get a homeowners’ or HVAC contractors’ opinion on this.
In my opinion, Trane is way over priced. You’re not going to see much of a difference if you go with the expensive one over the cheaper one. Some other cost efficient units are Goodman and Ruud. Both of these brands have warranties as good as Trane.
Carrier Vs. Goodman Comparison
Which furnace brand is better? Carrier or Goodman?
Hey everyone! I’m trying to find a good quality furnace for my home. I used to have a Carrier furnace. I’m trying to decide if I should go with the same brand or maybe a Goodman. I heard that Goodman is a decent furnace but cheaper.
Do you plan on living in the house for years to come? If so, you may want to choose the Carrier. But if you’re planning on moving within the year, it’s best and cheaper to just go with the Goodman. Your local contractor can help you decide which one is best for you.
