Furnace confusion

So yesterday we received a second quote for a furnace replacement.

And there was a HUGE difference in price. He quoted us $4100, as opposed to around $6000. Now, it’s for a Ruud furnace as opposed to a Lennox (i have do idea of the quality difference) but I can’t see it being a big quality difference since it is another big name furnace company. There is also a difference between the size of the furnace, the first guys said 70,000 BTU, and the second said 60,000 BTU.

So I don’t know the difference in the service levels between the companies, and any of that kind of stuff, but seriously, a $2000 difference between quotes is insane. The second company is a small local company, as opposed to the big multi-national corporation that the first quote came from.

I have one more quote on Oct 5, which I’m looking forward to. It’s a larger local company, and he seems to do a little more in-depth initial inspection to figure out what would be ideal for our house. He says he takes about an hour and a half, as opposed to the 20-30 min that the last two took.

So we’ll see what happens. And hopefully bean comes early. 🙂
