<<The husband, a terrific young man, was most impressed with the new oil burner system that we had installed. It was german made and no one had anything like it. The house was in fantastic condition and well made.

Ummm. He'll probably be less impressed some cold morning when it doesn't fire up and he has a lot of trouble finding someone to fix it and and a couple of week delay in getting parts needed to make it work.

As a furnace repairman, I used to recommend that people by a furnace from Carrier or one of it's other brands. Carrier furnaces weren't better than other brands, but they are much the largest maker of furnaces. As a result, if some repairman can fix ANYTHING he can probably fix Carrier furnaces, because he sees them so often.

And the odds are good that if he needs parts to fix the furnace, he'll have the part with him on his truck, because the turnover on those parts is high.
