I am kind of in the same boat. We bought a 38 year old house with the original Lennox furnace and Cental air.
The furnace is 165,000 BTU rated (80% AFUE) with a 5 Ton SEER 9 Air conditioner.
We have gotten a few quoted which range from $4,000 (80% AFUE+13 SEER Goodman) to $12,000 (95% AFUE dual stage with 14 SEER Carrier) depending on the brand and efficiency.
Lennox 93% AFUE dual stage with 13 SEER is about $5,600.
Given that the original Lennox lasted 38 years, is it any indication that the replacement from Lennox will do the same?
What is this Goodman brand? Never heard of it, but checking it out now, and it apears it is a subsidiary of Amana.
I am definitely not spending $12,000 for a Carrier. We expect to live in the house for the next 5-10 years.

Also be very wary of those rating sites. Most people do not report anything unless they have a complaint. So you see mostly the complaints. The results are skewed towards the few people that had a problem. In fact, I would not use that site at all as a determiner of quality. Use consumer reports if anything.

So far got a few quotes... anyone know anything about coleman, goodman, and carrier...?
Carrier was more than 6k over the price of the other two..
Not sure what to make of this site: http://www.furnacecomp

There are always going to be anecdotal evidence of people who have had a successful claim with a home warranty, just like with extended warranties on electronics or appliances. But, just like with extended warranties on electronics or appliances, home warranties are trash. Research has shown the math simply doesn't work.
You may want to seriously consider dropping that warranty and simply self-insure moving forward. In the end, your wallet will shine on you.

You should look into a home warranty program.
I have had my hot water heater, dishwasher, a/c thermostat and other various things replaced by them when they broke.
its about $40 a month but definitely worth it if something big like the a/c breaks (we have 3 a/c systems in our house)
we use www.ahs.com

|zzyzzx||There must have been something seriously wrong with your old water heater! I don't think that 20 year old ones used twice a much energy when they were new.|

Good point on the energy savings... plus pseg offers the worry free which I had on the old unit. Thanks.
