I was recently having my 23 year old Trane furnace serviced and was told (and shown) that the heat exchanger was cracked. Long story short its time for a replacement.
With the tax credit and incentives I was looking at the high efficiency units to replace.
I have no idea what brand to go with. Are there any recommendations out there? I am looking for cost effective and reliable, not too concerned with bells and whistles. In fact, if it wasnt for the rebate's I would just throw in another 80% unit.
Also, are the higher efficiency units more complicated therefore having a higher risk for problems?
Oh, my house is 1.5 stories (cape cod style) and is apprx 1500 sq ft. No heatpump or AC and no plans to install.
Thanks in advance.
