Finding HVAC prices online can be very challenging since manufacturers do not list them on their websites. That’s why it’s always great when a reader uses our Share a Price page to let us know what they paid for their unit. This one involves a Dave Lennox Signature Collection SLP98V Variable-Capacity gas furnace and comes from Dietrich in Cambridge, MA.
“Last fall I decided to take advantage of the government tax credits on new furnaces. I knew I wanted a Lennox Signature furnace since I had read nothing but good reports about their efficiency and performance. Because they tend to be more expensive than most furnaces I searched the web and could find very little about pricing because I didn’t want to be taken advantage of. I found this site, but didn’t find a price for the furnace I wanted, so I’m writing now to let others know what I paid.
The furnace I settled on was the Dave Lennox Signature Collection SLP98V Variable-Capacity gas furnace. I’ve always liked leading edge technology and the fact that it is 98.2% efficient caught my attention. I also was attracted to its other performance features:
Variable capacity operation (multi-stage) so it only runs at the level needed to maintain temperature
Variable speed motor for quiet operation and energy savings
Constant low fan for humidity control and balanced air circulation
SilentComfort design with insulated parts and enhanced cabinet and blower compartment insulation
Compatible with added air filter and humidifier
Limited lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger; 10-year on parts and controls
Here are my costs:
Dave Lennox Signature Collection SLP98V 60,000 Btu furnace: $3,350
Total: $5,750 before credits and rebates
Prices are high here in the northeast, but all of the bids I got were right about the same. Hope this helps!”
Thanks for the helpful info Dietrich! A final note to this post: It is always important to have your furnace professionally installed. When you buy an ultra-high performance furnace like the Dave Lennox Signature Collection SLP98V there is a long list of fittings, settings and adjustments that need to be very precise in order to achieve the 98.2% A.F.U.E. it is capable of. Always use a qualified contractor with experience in the brand and model, otherwise you might be spending for a 98% furnace but only getting mid-80’s efficiency, a common scenario with improperly installed furnaces.
