Big decision time tomorrow...we have to decide to go ahead with the new furnace. Big $$$ never bought one before so I hope we are making the right decision. Having AC put in too. Better now then in January.

We had quotes from 4 recommended companies.

It is always something with a house. But HVAC is a costly one. Good luck!

I also put a new HVAC system in my old house. I followed my installerís recommendation and chose the cheapest one. It was still expensive and I thought it was fabulous. I loved being able to set from my phone or iPad. Youíll be on Cloud 9, mhugs!

We put in a new furnace and central air this past spring. We are very pleased with what we got for the money. (Tempstar)

Expensive but worth it.

Better now than in the middle of January. Ours died (luckily during a warm spell - in the 30s) during the night this winter. You donít have time to shop and check options then.

We also replaced our furnace and central air this summer. I hated the expense, but having it go on the blink several times in the spring made it necessary. At least no worries for the next few years.

Yep, we're looking at it too. Plus the water heater. Our thought is as long as they're working in the utility room and have plumbers on site, might as well replace it; it's 15 years old. We have quotes from three companies. Threw one out; it's way too high. Haven't yet decided among the other two. I'm sure you'll be glad you got this done now. Hope the installation goes well!

I just saw furnaces advertised at Costco. You can also get least 2% back if you have an Executive Membership card. It might be worth it to check out. Good luck!

Check with your gas company...ours offers big rebates for more energy efficient models. You need to get the right model in order to get rebate here so check on line before choosing.
