Who makes Airco Oil Furnaces?

Have been quoted on an Airco oil furnace and was told that its made by York. I cant seem to find anything to confirm this and was hoping someone here would know.
Any opinions on Airco would also be appreciated.

Airco. Looks like its ECR International or Olsen/Airco.
Olsen HVAC | Products: Oil Furnaces | HTL Highboy Series

No mention of York anywhere to be found.

Not my favorite heat exchanger design by any stretch. The box in a box design is notorious for cracking. Olsen makes the same furnace under a dozen different names. It would likely cost more but I'd look at Thermo-Pride.

Thanks Grady. Looks like Thermo Pride is only sold by Oil Company's in my area. The 10 year parts warranty looks better than Rheems, York, Airco and American Standard. Any others that you might recommend?

If you are looking for something as a DIY project, availability of brands varies widely by area.
