Regal Furnace with a Beckett oil burner.

We are getting a new furnace. I decided to stick with oil fired hot air furnace. Our fuel oil company sells Regal furnaces with a Beckett burner. Any opinions on these 2 manufacturers? Sales guy was too explicit about different aspects. Which is more desireable a Direct Drive PSC motor or a Variable speed ECM ? One thing I noticed when my mother installed a new furnace. The air coming out of the ducts made alot of noise. I assume that the blower might have been running too fast. Another company in the area sells Thermopride furnaces. They seem to be well thought of on internet reviews. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks Tim

Thermopride all the way. Nothing really wrong with Regal but they aren't in the same class with Thermopride. I would go with the ECM, particularly if it is going in a multi-level home.

Thanks Grady. Thermopride looks to be a pretty good system. It is a 2 story home. What are your feelings on the Beckett burner?

Beckett is a good burner, parts available at any supply house, & any oil burner service person can work on them.
