Good: The Armstrong Air propane and natural gas furnace line up boasts a good selection of energy-efficient systems, with almost 63% of their furnaces receiving ENERGY STAR certification.
Want: Currently Armstrong Air offers no distinction between their warranty coverage with each of their furnaces receiving the same parts and heat exchanger coverage, regardless of whether the furnace purchased is an entry-level or premium priced model. With other mid-range priced brands providing consumers with warranty coverage on a sliding scale, that increases as the cost of the unit goes up not following suit does put Armstrong Air at a slight disadvantage.
The Bottom Line: Armstrong Air leverages its competitive pricing, selection of energy-efficient furnaces, and variety of furnace types in order to offset their standard warranty coverage.
