If your furnace is an 80%(low efficiency)it has a five year all parts warranty and a 20 year heat exchanger warranty.If it is a 92%(high efficiency)it has a ten year all parts warranty with a limited lifetime heat exchanger warranty.If its older than this then you should've just bought a new furnace you invested 75% of it on the repairs.What the general public does'nt realize is all brands of heat/ac equip. use the same vendors that supply their components.Examples are the rollout switches they are made by a company that makes controls ie KLIXON,GEMLINE,MARS,STEVECO,HONEYWELL,WHITE RODGERS,ROBERTSHAW,SUPCO,JOHNSON CONTROLS,etc.etc.etc.The three compressor manufacturers in the US is TECUMSEH,COPELAND and BRISTOL.The relays,contactors,motors all these parts are outsourced.GOODMAN,LENNOX,CARRIER etc. put them together and label them.What isn't the same is contractors.Some are very dishonest.They give the business a bad name.Good luck,17years experienced very good very honest HVACGUY!
