"Stay away from this furnace"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I have a 67 year old house and about 4 years ago replaced the old furnace that the house was built around. In the 20 years I lived with that furnace I replaced filters and once had the blower drive belt break. Since buying my Amana I have had 4 emergency service calls, all of which ended with no problem positively identified, because the problem is intermittent, but a large bill to pay. I have had to learn a lot more than I care to know about troubleshooting this piece of junk, and have replaced the hot surface igniter 3 times and the flame sensor once. Now it is acting up again, and it looks like maybe it is the gas valve this time. I am afraid to leave my house in winter for fear the pipes will freeze after the furnace fails again. I wish I could afford to throw it out and get a new furnace that is reliable. I will never buy another Amana though, and neither should you if you don’t want to worry about a frozen house.

"Working great so far"

We moved into this apartment approximately eight months ago, right when the weather was starting to go from chilly to cold. We had a four month old baby; needless to say, keeping the place warm was a real priority. We looked at this apartment and we really liked it but it just wasn’t quite warm enough. We told the landlord as much, and he said that he was about to replace the furnace, and that if we wanted we could help him to choose which furnace to buy. He gave us a couple of choices, and this Amana was one of them. We went through all of the specs and reviews and this seemed to be the best choice. It was installed right away, and what a difference it made. The place stayed wonderfully warm all winter. We even had to have a repairman come to look at the hot water heater once and he commented on how we had a great furnace. Obviously we haven’t had it long, but so far we’ve had no problems at all. I can’t tell you how nice it is to have an appliance that you can count on. Many thanks to our landlord, and to Amana.

Air flow in home is much better than our old furnace. Very quiet system. The comfort net thermostat is easy to use. I chose best Heating and Cooling. They installed the complete furnace and a/c system in one day. They knew what they were doing and were very professional and friendly. Spent $7400 received $2050 back from MidAmerican Energy.
