I’m currently building a home through a fairly large nationwide builder. As normal, the upgrades on the house are costing me an arm and a leg. The home comes standard with a Bryant "Plus 80" Gas furnace and I am interested in upgrading to the Bryant Plus90i series.

My builder is telling me it will cost $4000 to upgrade to this type of furnace. Of course I called a few HVAC contractors and asked what the price difference was on a Plus 80 and a Plus90i furnace without installation (I assumed 80,000 BTU with 2000cfm). The average price difference was $1500!!! Way below the $4000 my builder is telling me.

Is my builder ripping me off or what? Keep in mind, I’ve already paid for the Plus80 furnace AND the installation.....all I should be paying for is the cost difference between the two models, right???

WOW!! dont write a check to this guy!! yes there is some additional labor and materials involved with uprading to a 90 plus furnace.
you can expect to pay at the max an additional 700.00 for the furnace and a half days labor . If it were me probably 1100-1200.00 difference at the most. Good luck and hang on to your wallet.
