"The noisy motor will not last for more than 5 years"
I replaced 2 very old furnaces (each was >20 y.o.) in both mine and my dad's houses in 2005, put same Keeprite model in both places. What a mistake! In my house the motor became making loud rattling noice after about 1.5 years of service, the furnace died completely in 2010, right after the warranty expired. The technician had replaced the small motor/fan AND the board (~$800 in total), the new motor started to become loud just 2 months later! At the same time, in 2010 my dad's furnace (5 years old) has the same problem. The fan noise becomes unbearable and the technician says it's only the matter of time before it will die, something to do with worn down bearrings and poor design. I want my old 20 year old furnaces back.. And never again I will buy a Keeprite.

"Air Exchange Heat Pump"
I expected the service for my heatpump to more efficient. I've been trying to get my provider to service my unit and cannot get his technician out to inspect the problem.

I have this furnace installed two years back. The noise from the small motor starting the cycle is like a motor cycle engine in the night. I have 5 years parts and labor written warranty from the installer. I keep calling him and he does not show up. can any body tell me what should i do. If I could I would throw this unit out of my house without wasting a minute I can not sleep in the night it keeps waking me up.

"High level noise"
I replaced my keep rite furnace and air condition unit in summers 2010. The problem I have is the noise. Since we replaced the unit the noise level in every room has increased that we can not sleep properly. It is a single step motor so the speed can not be changed. The person who installed never gave any receipt. Is there anything I can do to reduce noise. Please advise…

New home came with a Keeprite installed. In the 3rd month the furnace stopped. Called the sticker on the furnace and Keeprite gave number of the installer. 2:00 am and the tech called back and asked about the "heartbeat" in the view window. He said he would be right out. He was their inside of 30 min. The unit was running in 15. No charge. No callout charge of any kind. The tech said that was the Keeprite warranty. WOW. Temp outside was -35 deg f. We have had no issues since. 3 winters. (it gets cold here)

"Stay away from KeepRite Furnace"
If you have money you want to get rid of buy a KeepRite Furnace . The Heat exchanger must be badly designed or poorly manufactured maybe both. Every time you have this furnace checked before winter there is a high chance Direct Energy will RED TAG the furnace.

This is my fourth home. I never had issues like this before. The furnace is 7 years old. I replaced the board, PSwitch and ignitor. What else can go wrong?? I'm contemplating on replacing the furnace. I've been told by the service tech that Keeprites are known for their heat exchanger cracks and I should have it serviced annually!

I found this web site while researching a replacement for my 7 year old Keeprite furnace. After five years (just beyond the warranty period) the condenser needed replacement, $750.00. Now the heat exchanger is cracked. It is a dog!

The unit was 11 years old when we purchased the house 11 years ago. We have not had any issues with this unit. It looks like the fan/limit control was changed before we bought the house. It was made in Brantford, Ontario, Canada but that factory has been closed. I would try another KeepRite.
