Does anyone know the difference between Carrier Weathermaker furnaces/AC units and Carrier furnaces/AC units. I was thinking of buying the Carrier Weathermaker 9200 Ultra Efficency Furnace and AC system.

Further, I am undecided if I should buy the Weathermaker model. Is this a lower model/quality of Carrier. I did a little bit of research on Carrier's website but they don't have any weathermaker furnaces as a sellection.

Thank you,
John

theres weathermakers are just a different brand name...contactors will use a lesser quility..less options..may not have insluation or so forth. but its still a carrier...sure u want to install now..maybe..read up on them google top 10 in furnace quility,and warranty's you may be surprised carrier doesnt have the name it use too a/c sure..but then again they all have issues...u like ur nike shoes? like paying for the name...watch out oem parts...cause its a carrier have special plugs, hsi,cant use univ...ur going to pay more..if a part fails out of warranty....then again get the 10 year warranty on any high eff furnace...cause theres still acid water being made...and steel...only time will tell.

Carrier - HVAC installation

Thanks for the reply hvacr_pro. I called a few local installers and found out that weathermaker is a carrier. Just a lower quality with less options.

I ended up buying the Carrier Weathermaker 9200 Ultra Efficency Furnace and AC system. It's a year old system that some one removed from their house they lost.

Planning on hiring a certified HVAC contractor to install it into a house I recently rehabbed. What does it typically cost to have a system installed? I have/purchased the furnace, A coil, and condensor. Looks like in addtion, I will need to purchase the fuse box, line set and may need the AC system to be charged. Doesn't look like there will be too much tin work or sheet metal work to be done.

thanks,
John Daprano
