Thermo-Pride Furnaces

I've been reading through several past posts in this forum, and everyone seems to rave about Thermo-Pride furnaces. I'd love to get some opinions on them since I'm trying to educate myself a little better about this subject. What's so great about them, and are they really that reliable?

There are several things that put Thermo-Pride head & shoulders above any other oil fired furnace out there. (1) 13 gauge steel, copper coated heat exchangers. (2) Octagonal heat exchanger. (3) Only (as far as I know) oil fired furnace with a variable speed blower. (4) Clay combustion chamber. (5) Quality cabinet made to be taken apart & put back together easily if needed for installation. (6) Every heat exchanger is welded by an individual & then inspected by an individual. (The welder used to put his initials in welding bead on the heat exchanger). (7) Fully transferable lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger to subsequent homeowners. Enough for now. Fit it with a good burner (I prefer Riello), feed it clean, low sulfur fuel, & plenty of clean air & it might need cleaning in 10 years. If I had warm air heat, I'd have a Thermo-Pride, no doubt about it.

I think the reliable part comes when you take a good quality furnace and install it correctly with good oil filtration and a properly sized duct system. The rest has to do with construction of the unit. I like a combustion chamber like the Thermopride has. You can get in it and vacuum if necessary. I liked the Oneida furnaces too until they were no longer available.
