    “We got a great deal on a 1,350 square foot ranch home under construction.  The builder’s original customer backed out when he lost his job and moved to find work.  The house was for sale for six months when we entered the picture.  We were able to choose interior layout, décor and fixtures, plus details like the HVAC components.  The builder highly recommended Lennox stating that he rarely saw issues with them even after many years of use.  We researched Lennox on this site and elsewhere and what we found was consistent with his claims.  He handled working with the contractors but we wanted final approval on pricing.  The two quotes he presented us with were:

    Lennox Elite Series G61 60,000 Btu 95% AFUE gas furnace, $1,339, plus $2,200 installation: Total $3,539

    Lennox Elite Series G51 60,000 Btu 92.1% AFUE gas furnace, $779, plus $2,200 installation: Total $2,979

    Since the house was already a bit of a stretch for us financially we chose the Lennox Elite Series G51.  It has excellent fuel efficiency and we save a few bucks up front.  The builder said 2 men took about 5 hours to install it.  The job was easy since it is new construction with no old unit to remove and dispose of.   That’s the nuts and bolts of our story.”
