If you are in the market for a rock-solid 80% efficient furnace with a excellent warranty the Rheem Classic Plus Series Super Quiet 80 RGPT is worth a look when you are gathering gas furnace prices. It’s quiet operation is just the tip of the performance ice berg. Here’s a letter from Scott in Evansville, Indiana that details the Rheem Classic Plus Series Super Quiet 80 Upflow RGPT gas furnace price and many of the features that make it a best seller.
“We recently did some renovation to our finished walk-out basement including adding a small kitchen and expanding the bathroom to accommodate our son and his family. He was laid off from his management job in manufacturing last year and finally landed something nearby here. In these times it made more sense to move in here than to buy a home – at least until he knows this current job is going to be stable. Plus we love having the grandkids, 2 and 4, around. As part of the renovation we got rid of the cheap builder’s grade furnace that never did seem to keep up in real cold weather.
With the kids living down there, and grandbabies napping, we added quiet operation to the list of criteria we wanted in the furnace. I talked to several contractors and did some online research and the furnace that grabbed my attention was the Rheem Classic Plus Series Super Quiet 80 Upflow RGPT. Here’s why:
The cost of the Rheem Classic Plus Series Super Quiet 80 Upflow RGPT was very comparable to other units I priced and I thought it had a better warranty as well as track record with customers.
Rheem Classic Plus Series Super Quiet RGPT, 100,000 Btu gas furnace, $1,388; Installation, $2,000. Total: $3,388
So far the furnace is surpassing expectations for performance and quiet—it hasn’t woken up a napping child once yet!”
