Ruud, Trane, and American Standard are among the more reliable natural gas furnace brands, whereas Goodman, Lennox, and Amana are among the less reliable brands. York, however, stands out as the least reliable brand and cannot be recommended by Consumer Reports at this time. That’s what we found based on the feedback of 21,618 subscribers, who reported on their experiences with gas furnaces installed between 2011 and 2016.
I'd had them come out before and called because my thermostat wasn't getting power. They said they don't service townhomes. I said that must be a new policy because they've been out before and she said they've had it for awhile. I tried to ask why they don't service townhomes and she said they don't service attached homes or commercial properties. I said that my home isn't commercial and it doesn't really answer my question, but I guess I'll go elsewhere. I couldn't find this policy on their website and I can't really understand why a townhome furnace would be different than an unattached home. When they came out before I seem to remember they did a good job, so it's too bad they have odd policies now.

Heat pumps that wring heat from outdoor air (and reverse the process in summer to act as an air conditioner) are inexpensive to install as an alternative to a cooling-only air-conditioning system. That makes them the preferred way to heat in the South and Southwest, where winters are typically short and mild. Heat pumps that wring heat from the ground are much more expensive to install, but they are suitable for cold climates because they can maintain their operating efficiency. Other inexpensive electric-heat options include strip heaters, which are installed in the ductwork of central air conditioning, and permanently installed baseboard units in each room. But before you consider any type of electric central heating in colder regions, keep in mind that electricity rates are much higher than those for natural gas and are likely to remain that way for the foreseeable future. You can get rate information for various fuels from local utilities and suppliers.
I'm so impressed and happy that I called Affordable Furnace Repair!  Not only did they come out same day, but they were early and quick.  They even showed me how I can try to fix it myself next time.  And they were so nice and friendly!  Sometimes it's weird to invite people into your home to work on something, but this wasn't weird or awkward to me.  I feel like I'm gushing here, but I'm so happy our heat is working again so quickly!
Walter was stupendous! He installed a new high-efficiency central air and furnace in my house. His master craftsmanship (artistry) and customer service are in a class of their own. From removing the old unit to all of the finishing touches, testing and review of operating the system, every detail was done in excess of what I could have imagine and I'm a Building Inspector. It was a very pleasant experience for me with only good surprises.
Hi This is my 1st summer owning this house. My electric bill has been doubling for 3 months in a row..I have a Carrier 25HPA6 Performance Series 2 Stage Heat Pump...I recently went online and found instructions on how to clean the outdoor unit. I did so and it was not very dirty. I also have a generator that kicks on when I lose power which does not support the AC unit..We did lose power for a few days recently. I have 2 faults showing on the heat pump unit..one being 53 outdoor air sensor not reading or out of range 255 events and F 37 control fault, heater stuck on 13 events.It is set to cool and the fan to auto. I have never had a heat pump or central Air and am very green to this.The previous owners left no manuals.I have found one online but for installation only. PLease help?

If your thermostat has a small lever that moves along a calibrated scale that indicates “longer” (not the heat temperature lever), you can try adjusting this—the heat anticipator. Just set it one calibration mark closer to the “longer” setting if the furnace goes off and on too frequently or one mark away if the furnace allows room temperature to rise too high or drop too low before going on or off. It may take several hours for the thermostat to stabilize at this setting, so wait a while and then adjust it again if necessary.
Bryant manufactures and markets gas central furnaces that are available in single and multistage configurations, with some models capable of an AFUE rating of more than 90 percent. Bryant markets units that meet Energy Star requirements and makes others that it claims offer quiet operation. A new line of hybrid heat systems that uses gas and an electric heat pump was recently introduced. The average price of a Bryant central gas furnace is about $2,300 and Bryants are sold through their dealer network.
A pinging or popping sound coming from the duct work can come from thermal expansion—the ductwork expanding and contracting as it heats and cools.  Or, air blowing past a loose flap of metal can make the sound. Track along the duct runs, listening for the sound. If you locate it, make a small dent in the sheet metal to provide a more rigid surface that’s less likely to move as it heats and cools.
Customer has a 3 year old American Standard gas furnace, she said that her furnace and thermostat were fried and not working. She had an electrician come by and inspect it, but he wasn't able to do anything. Upon investigation, I found that the thermostat has failed due to a power surge that hit the home. I also found that the fuse on the control board was blown and the contactor at the condenser was fried along with wiring. I replaced thermostat, contactor, and fuse/wiring and tested all modes of operation. All components are within manufacturers specifications and system fully operational. Recommend annual maintenance and power surge protector for either home or equipment.
This type of furnace is fueled by liquid propane gas, which is burned to push hot air through your home. A pilot light ignites the burners within a combustion chamber, which push heat into the heat exchanger and eventually through your entire home. Repairing this type of furnace can be more expensive than its electric alternative. For example here are some common propane gas repairs and their costs:

CM Heating performed a Gas Furnace Diagnostic. Customer wanted his echo bee thermastat installed that he had bought himself. Furnace was working fine just wanted his thermastat installed. He thought that the $99 service fee was going to cover that but explained to him what the service fee was for, and explained that there is a additional install fee for the stat. Customer didn’t want to pay the additional fee so I called the office had them listen to the call to make sure we explained to the customer correctly and to see how they would like me to proceed. So I quoted the customer the fee to install the thermostat but he didn’t want us to install it so I left.

Appointment was scheduled between 8am and 11 am, technician called and said that he will at 11 am, technician arrived at 11:23am. The request for service was regarding Furnace Maintenance, more specifically fan won't stop turning after heater has stopped after reaching desired temperature. Service was provide by Sam Singh from WesternAir Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning. The mechanic opened the side panels of the heater+ac unit and concluded that the unit is too old for maintenance, as in it is not worth it, even though I have already payed $94.19 through Amazon.com. The mechanic spend close to one hour explaining how my heater+ac unit is too old for any updates and that it should just be replaced. I didn't receive any of the services that are included in the Furnace Maintenance package listed on Amazon.com. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015JRGSQI/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I was ripped off my this company and I would very much like my money to be returned to me. Opening and closing the panels of my unit doesn't cost more than $2, I can do that by myself.
Your HVAC system is an important appliance with a limited lifetime. Depending on use, with regular maintenance you can expect your furnace and air conditioner to last between 8-18 years before you will need to replace the old one. However, poor maintenance is one of the primary reasons for early replacement HVAC systems ahead of end of average life expectancy.
