"Furnace is not the problem getting parts in Edmonton will break the bank"
We have had our arcoair for over 20 years and love it. Yes gas went off untill we learnt to use a nail file on the igniter. Now the we need parts to fix it paid $200.00 to a company here in Edmonton told them the make , model and part needed . Guy shows up charges us just to tell us he can not find the part. So I keep trying to find parts . Any hints email me. firstname.lastname@example.org.

"My Gas Bill is out of this Planet"
What happen to the heat from the Furnace? I have a small 2 Bedroom Condo and my Gas bill is out of this world. I also have an ac and I can not afford to run in the Summer because the ac is not cooling my small Condo in the Summer nor is the Furnace heating my small Condo in the Winter! I wonder why my Basement get all the benefits?

"Where's the heat ???? Furnace is suppose to heat"
My landlord installed these cold air loud energy eaters this October. My bill has gone outrageous and I am cold all the time. Can't wait to see what happens in summer when they put in the ac unit -- we will probably get heat when we put on the ac. My neighbors agree it blows cold air on heat. What a waste of $.

From the point of view of a full time installer and service technician stay away from anything arcoaire N9MP1100J20*. I have never installed one but have torn many fairly new units out and replaced them with carrier or bryant. Take it from me, when it comes to furnaces more so than air conditioners you do get what you pay for so spend a little more now and in the end you will save many time over.

"Mid efficiency gas furnace"
2 year old furnace and the heat exchanger failed nearly killing someone. Company couldn't care less and wouldn't even cover $500 labour charge. Stay away from International Comfort Products

"So far. so good!!"
My buddy had the Arcoaire for a year and when he remodeled his home he had to install a different style. He sold me his for a bargain price. Him and I did the installation at my home 7 yrs ago and it has been a great gas furnace so far; efficient, cost effective and quiet with minimal maintenance. His brother owns a heating & cooling business and swears by Arcoaire.

"dealer and installer"
I read some all of these reviewes and for the most part these appear on the surface to be installers problems,first and formost equipment sizeing is very important,to big is no good to small the same,your equipment dealer or from who your buying the product from should do a proper heat load calculation on the dwelling and then to insure the proper opration on the equipment check out the duct sizing coming off the furnace,85% of the reviews I read here can be related to either one of those causes not being properly address,some failures will happen no matter who,s furnace you purchase,are far as getting parts on a timely bases,in my 23 years of being on the street Ive never known that to be the case all the major manufactures of hvac equipement as resposive to the costomers needs,its up to the dealer /installer to have that network of responce set up in there corner before selleig the product line,most all HVAC equipment is created equil,its up to the installer/dealer,to make sure the what is prescribe for you job not only works at the thermostat,but support is readlly available.

In the four years since I've had model #h8mpt125j20a1 gas furnace installed, I have put another $1,000 in parts and service calls. It has left us in the cold in deep winter for over three weeks as we waited for parts. Arcoaire did not honor any warrenty. This is a company that I believe should go out of business for such a shoddy product. I would love to hear from someone from Arcoaire or Sears that sold me this nightmare.

"Still Very Happy after 12 years"
125k BTU, Single Speed, 80%. Bought unit in 1998 at closeout for $400. Found installer to plug it in. Has worked great ever since. Reliable, efficient, simple, needs minimal care. Have vacuumed out the burner compartment a couple times over the years, but almost no dust or slag. Burners still look new. Very happy with equipment. Not fancy, but just good heat. Only complaint is that the filter is difficult to replace, and doesn't fit well. Thinking about new furnace with $1,500 energy credit, but why??

I just moved in my house a year ago. This year the heat exchanger had a crack in it and now I have to replace the furnace. The Arcaire furnace that I have was manufactured in 1986. This unit lasted 24 years. I'm pretty sure whoever bought it would be happy to know that they made a good purchase and got every dollar out of it.
