80% gas furnace comparison


Recommended Posts

Hi - which gas furnace is better carrier 58sta070 or Bryant 310aav036070?

Thanks!!

Last I heard was that Bryant is made on a Carrier assembly line. Bryant just puts their name on it, maybe paints it a different color.

Could be you're talking about essentially the same unit.

Yes. In a globalized economy with everyone buying everyone else, and investment bankers driving acquisitions, value engineering takes over (UT, Nordyne, etc.).

The "good stuff" has gone sour and the stuff we all used to laugh at (Goodman) has gotten good.

I've been seeing some American Standard (now Trane?) stuff that's really nice.

Trane buys from American Standard and puts their colors and name on them.

They aren't so bad but I'd never buy one myself. I have a saying about them...yeah, it may be 'Hard to Stop a Trane' but you just wait until you try to get the dang thing started again. They're second only to Carrier as a bitch to work on.

JMHO.

My Goodman GMH95046 is running strong after about 6 years of service. The installer was pretty particular (me), which likely has helped. Cost: $700'ish shipped to my door.

Here's a high efficiency Goodman @ about the same BTU range as the OP's with free shipping @ a good price: http://www.alpinehomeair.com/viewproduc ... =453062322

Or, for an 80% unit: http://www.alpinehomeair.com/viewproduc ... =453064680
