Not sure what you are thinking, but if you are considering getting a furnace from Costco you should do some research and read reviews.

These of course are relatively generic and random reviews. The thing about buying a new furnace that is most important is who installs it. I imagine a Carrier or Lennox furnace bought from Costco will be about the same as from an HVAC contractor/dealer in terms of quality and cost. The real difference--and this is critical of all furnace replacements/installations--is whether the person installing it really knows what they are doing and are certified by the manufacturer.

It is also incredibly important to properly size the furnace and check to see if duct work and other issues need to be addressed. Not sure Costco will go the full distance or how they handle installs and so on.

So you may save on the actual furnace, but pay in the end to have it properly installed or redone if it isn't done right the first time.

Good Luck!

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
