Good: Price and warranty are two areas that set KeepRite apart from their competitors in the economy-priced brand tier. At an average of about $2800-$4000 including installation KeepRite is an affordable option for consumers looking to upgrade to a high-efficiency gas furnace. When it comes to signing off on a new high-efficiency natural gas furnace a deal breaker for many is warranty coverage. Having to pay several thousand dollars up front, consumers want assurance that their initial investment is protected and that the home heating system they choose is made to last. KeepRite seems to pride themselves on their excellent customer service, and since actions speak louder than words, their No Hassle Replacement™ protection proves their commitment to manufacturing reliable and durable furnaces that consumers can count on.
Want: KeepRite honestly makes it hard to identify an area of improvement. They certainly check all the boxes when it comes to excellent warranty protection, range of efficiencies and a selection of Single Stage, Two Stage, Multi Speed and Variable Speed furnace options. One area they could maybe be more competitive in is pricing, but even so their prices are quite reasonable. Starting at roughly $2800 for a high-efficiency natural gas furnace with installation, KeepRite is on average slightly more expensive than some other economy tier brands. Goodman for instance usually starts in the $2200 – $2400 range. That said, KeepRite has a strong customer loyalty due to their excellent warranty protection, the added benefit that their No Hassle Replacement™ warranty gives consumers is arguably worth any added upfront costs.
The Bottom Line: KeepRite is a top contender in the economy-priced brand tier, and a great option when you’re looking to upgrade to an energy-efficient home furnace that offers you great warranty coverage at a fair price point.

KeepRite joins Goodman and York in the economy-priced brand tier, with a KeepRite residential furnace costing roughly $2800-$4000. Their approximate $2800 starting price point makes KeepRite a bit more expensive among economy-priced brands with both Goodman and York usually starting at roughly $2500 for their entry-level efficiency models. However, with KeepRite’s limited 20 year heat exchanger warranty available for their economy-priced models some consumers may be willing to overlook it. As far as premium priced models go, KeepRite is neck in neck with Goodman and York, as all three top out around $4000, for their top ENERGY STAR certified 98% AFUE high-efficiency natural gas furnace models.
