Gas Furnace Estimates - Willow Grove PA

I have an approx 1800 sq ft home, gas hot air. Currant furnace is ~60% efficient (1970s), maybe 100000 BTU (not 100% sure).

I got one quote from the HVAC company that I have used before to do some re-ducting last year. Always been happy with their service. So, I asked about getting an efficient replacement for my furnace (had a 300 gas bill for a month, with 66 F max setting, usually 60 at night).

Anyhow, quote on a Bryant 90T 2 stage unit
(352 MAV) installed was ~3200. The 90i variable speed was ~3800.

Are these prices reasonable or high? Should I get more quotes?

Most here will say the same thing. Get a good company for sure that your happy with. But still get 3 bid for the same thing also have them run a heat loss on the home.
I still think a furnace from the 70s if you had it cleaned. and checked every 2 years and the air filter clean all the time Ill bet it did more like a AFUE of 70%

hard to say for your area, but depending on location (basement, attic, upflow, downflow) price varies greatly. in atlanta we are just over 1/2 that

get more quotes, but sounds like furnaces are pricey in your area

Basement location - upflow I guess.

I am going to get a few more quotes, but things are definitely pricey around here...

Is that price just for furnace replacement?

Not a bad price if it includes A/C.

Hello: comgenboy

Alway's consider the warranties and future service needs for any major appliances you're considering to purchase. Price isn't always the best guide for long term appliance investments.

And there you have it..."My Two Cents"...
