Our older gas fired furnace became a major concern one chilly Wednesday night when our CO detector sounded an alarm. We opened up the house and called the company that installed our unit and performs our bi annual equipment maintenance service. Turns out the CO detector was faulty having been installed some 15 Or 20 plus years ago. However, camera shots the tech took of the inside of the Heat exchanger showed possible heat stress fractures possibly compromising my family's health and safety in the near future. The tech informed me his company no longer carried the brand they installed some 11 plus years ago and priced a replacement furnace component from a different manufacturer retro fitted into the existing system....
I would have ended up with a Very expensive Frankenstein $ystem.....
Thursday morning, I immediately got online to research a replacement furnace from the same manufacturer as my original equipment and finally came upon Greenleaf's website where they gave a price - online! - for the exact furnace unit. I made an inquiry on line as to what it would cost to install and they responded via text message with a rough estimate all subject to field verification.
Thursday evening, Rick from Green Leaf spent close to an hour between checking all the equipment numbers outside and in the attic as well as checking with Ben in the office who ran supply chain Logistics to make sure if and when we could get the exact correct equipment. They found the correct furnace and could install it Saturday for half the price of the Frankenstein described above.
Rick also gave us an estimate for a total and complete new system using as much of the original ducts and plenums as possible.
Turns out, the solution we felt was best for us was the complete new 5 ton 16 seer system with 10 year warranty from Trane. It was the same price as the original Frankenstein repair estimate from the first company.
They started installing the unit last Monday at 9:30 a.m. and totally wrapped up clean and out the door by 3:30 p.m..
Awesome service - awesome install - awesome company - 5 stars!!!
BTW - I am in the commercial real estate business and after conferring with 3 other pros I know in the A/C business, no one could touch the price I got from Greenleaf. Their service was superb.
