Reviews for interested customers:
“Amana is amazing”
I’ve had an Amana for over 11 years and have had no problems. I believe the problem is not the unit but mostly Amana’s customer service. I recently sold my house and had to install a new furnace at my new place. I am receiving a 10-year parts and labor warranty from a local heating contractor named Bosco. I have been a customer of these guys for quite some time, mainly with plumbing. The installers were efficient and very attentive to detail. I’m extremely satisfied with their work. I came to fill in my review and was quite taken aback by the negative comments I saw here. So I felt it was necessary that someone spoke up. Most of these unsatisfied customers seem to be unsatisfied with Amana’s customer service, rather than the product. Pick the right contractors and you will be fine. I will never change from Amana nor will I use anyone other than Bosco.
