Best Furnace Brands: Here Are The Best Furnaces In The Market Right Now

What Are The Best Furnace Brands?

By: For Saving Heating & Cooling

Today we are going to look into one of the best furnace brands available in the market.

This will help you make up your mind when it comes to picking up the best brand of furnace when it comes to your needs and expectations.

Before going deep into discussing each brand individually, let’s look at the charts to see how they have performed in terms of quality, price, and warranty.

The grades are as follows:

4 – extremely good

3 – average

2 – not so good

The furnace brands that have the highest ratings are the ones that can go up to 20 years without any repairs or minor repairs.

The only thing that is crucial to this life span is the installment.

If the furnace is installed right, then you are good to go.

With that being said, let’s dive a bit deeper into the subject of furnaces and brands.

1. ICP/Heil

As you could be able to see from the chart just now, this is a brand that stands on the top of the list, and with good reason!

These two furnace brands are partner/parent companies, but there is still the subject of superiority.

In our opinion, the ICP is a much better brand than the Heil.

But the main reason these are number one is that they are also very easy to distribute on a national level.

All of them are covered with a 10-year warranty and we love that because it is considered standard practice for this type of industry.

Also, the best thing about it is that Hail will exchange the entire furnace if it fails to deliver the optimal functioning within its first ten years of the purchase.

Of course, when it comes to installation, please make sure to hire certified and licensed furnace installers.

You need to ake sure that they are NATE certified (North American Technician Excellence).

2. Goodman

Since they started making furnaces in the 1980s, they have been the face of high quality, low price brands.

The best placement they got is second place, mostly because they can offer a 10-year warranty when it comes to changing the heat exchanger if something happens to it.

If the heat exchanger fails, they will provide you with a new one!

Let’s look into the installation.

This is a very good product since you can even install it yourself.

However, this is a downside too.

Since they have a reputation for easy installation, anyone could install them wrong and they can turn up and be broken in no time.

Just because of this, it is always nice to have a certified installer have your furnace prepared for you.

3. Ruud/Rheem

These two are for brands that have had too many technical issues in the past and this is the reason why they have not been included in our list until just now.

However, when it comes to the value and quality of the furnace, they have proven to be pretty good!

When it comes to the warranty, we can safely say that these are the best ones that are available on the market at the moment and it is making them super competitive.

The warranty for the parts of the furnace or the entire furnace is 10 years, and they would be able to replace anything that needs replacing (if the need comes for that) within the first ten years.

Of course, when it comes to the installation part, there should always be a professional that has the necessary experience and certification who would do the job right.

4. Maytag

This is one of the best-known companies that specialize in furnaces and is known all across the world!

Believe it or not, the Maytag 1200 Series are the ones that have one of the best warranties you can find.

It offers you a 12-year warranty if a part of the furnace or the entire furnace breaks down, anything will be replaced with a new one.

And again the best thing we can do is underline that it is recommended to use a NATE certified furnace installation company when installing your furnace.

It is the best option, especially in those cases where you want to have a good quality service and have your furnace installed the way it should be installed.

5. A.S/Trane

Both American Standard and Trance are companies that are owned by Ingersoll-Brand.

They are very, very reliable brands nowadays.

Even though they are priced on the higher end of the pricing sheet, they are both worth it.

For the general parts, the warranty period is about 10 years.

It is required by both brands to be installed by some factory-trained people.

These would be your best choice for picking an installer for this type of furnace.

They have a pretty high-cost installing rate, but again, it is worth it!

Also, one of the best bits to having a furnace installed by the same brand installers is that you will be ensured the furnace will work exactly as it should.

You can ask them what type of specialist training the installer has and whether it would be good to be applied to install your furnace in your home.

6. Bryant/Carrier

These two brands are also on the high-price end and with good reason, the quality they can offer is almost unmatchable.

It's very dependable.

If you are looking for a furnace that will pay off in the long run, we highly recommend that you choose one of these furnace brands.

One of the reasons we are advising this is because the furnace, as all of its parts, will come with 10 years of warranty, which is always good when investing in an entire furnace.

We also have to mention that these are the types of services that require a specific installation process.
