Question Independent Ratings of Furnaces ala Consumer Reports

Hi,

I will probably have to replace my furnace within the next few weeks. Is there any independent organization similar to Consumer Reports that evaluates furnaces? Where can I get information on what I should consider when deciding on what features I need (variable rate fan, etc)? Also, I've read about Manual J calculation. Where can I get more info about that? I'm hoping to become an "educated" consumer.

Thanks,
Sonny

You can do your own heating/cooling load calculation for $39. Go to www.hvaccomputer.com where you can buy a one house version of a program that's based on Manual J.
