It doesn't seem like Beyond has a go-to furnce guy (A/C guy, but not furnace). I need some work done in the next week or two and other than going with someone from the radio I don't really know anyone in the business. I would prefer a shop that's a Lennox dealer. Any recommendations from shops you've used and are happy with?

I would skip Lennox and move to Bryant/Payne.

Lennox has dropped in quality over the past 10 years and if you talk to guys that fix furnaces more than half of the time they are working on a Lennox that has failed.

Bryant is also very picky as to which installers they allow to install their product, you won't be getting a random Joe selling you one.

My furnace doesn't need replacing (it's only five years old), just some repairs / maintenance. I would rather have a Lennox guy working on a Lennox furnace, that's all.

Every repair guy is a Lennox guy. ;) Like a yard maintenance guy that works on grass, they all do.

Lennox / Carrier has probably 98% of the furnaces in our homes, hence the amount of work from them. Doesn't mean quality is bad.

Bryant is build by Carrier. Nearly all brands are built by the same 2 or 3 manufacturers. Same as kitchen appliances.

If you're just looking for furnace maintenance, there's Arpi's or Service Masters. Both are Lennox dealers. I'm sure there's a few others, but those two are the ones that come to mind when Lennox is mentioned.

If you're just looking for a routine furnace maintenance check etc, even most furnace duct cleaning companies have some sort of furnace service package.

Service Experts, they do heating and A/C and are Lennox guys.

Anton on here runs Fresh Air Furnace. He'd be a good guy to chat with :)
