We appreciate readers sending in their gas furnace prices so that we can pass them along to you. Jaye on Long Island recently shared his Carrier Comfort 92 Gas Furnace price with us and we’ve added his account to our HVAC Prices database so you can find helpful pricing information as you consider your purchase. Here’s what Jaye had to say.
“We bought a foreclosed house here last spring and got a great deal. It needed some work including a new furnace. I had 5 different companies out to give me bids on all the leading brands. That was a circus because they offered different sizes, difference features, all kinds of extras. Sometimes too many choices is as bad as too few. In the end we chose the Carrier Comfort 92 gas furnace for its balance of low price and good efficiency, though models from Trane and Lennox were pretty similar. Here’s the deal I went with.
Carrier Comfort 92 90,000 Btu gas furnace, $2,649, installation, $2,200, total: $4,849
The benefits of this furnace according to the brochure include:
The guys who installed it seemed pretty clueless and they had to have their boss come out 3 times to straighten them out. The third time he came I insisted he stay and see the project through till it was running. They were here for almost 2 days but finally got it going and it seems to run okay. If I had to do it over again I’d get the same furnace but would look into the reputation of the company deeper. I was so concerned about getting the right furnace I overlooked the expertise – or lack thereof – of the installers. Unfortunately I don’t have access to the old heating bills for the 80% efficient furnace we replaced, so I won’t be sure I’m getting higher efficiency with this one. This winter the bills have been pretty low so I’m hoping it’s running at peak efficiency.”
Thanks for the note Jaye. We appreciate the information and also the message – check out the HVAC company thoroughly before you hand over the important job of installing your gas furnace. It always makes sense to check with the BBB or something like Angie’s List, and call a few references if possible. If you are comfortable that you’ve hired a qualified contractor to do the work, you’ll have the confidence you’re getting your money’s worth from the gas furnace you’ve had installed.
