Comparing American Standard to Napoleon Furnace Equivalent
January 30, 2014
We compared the American Standard 2 stage variable speed versus the Napoleon furnace equivalent. In this comparison we chose to evaluate 7 different criteria which you will see below. We have chosen these criteria based on our years of experience with residential customers.[table id=7 /]
In this case the furnaces are in an elite category for quality, efficiency and rank in the top as far as heating equipment goes. The determining factors for difference are located in the reliability, warranty and price. The reliability is not provided as Napoleon was not compared in the Consumers Reports survey conducted. The warranty can be based on individual heating contractors and when faced with these warranties, I challenge you to read all the fine print, how much do they charge for labour, is it included, what happens if you need to get your furnace repaired, what’s the life expectancy of furnace, which parts fail the most, are they included, how to validate the warranty, how much will that be, etc. We have been at this for over 139 years and our team provides you with the honest answers. When it comes to the cost differential from our market research the Napoleon looks to be on average about $1000 more.
If you are looking to replace your furnace don’t be influenced by marketing budgets and advertising programs. Do your research as it may lead you to a different decision. For more #HoggTips on how to reduce your furnace costs please see our blog.
