110000 BTU Furnace Replacement

Hi I need to replace 110000 Whirlpool Furnace. I would like the highest efficient furnace and I was wondering if Amana or Bryant be good choice. I had Trane/Lennox in the past and always work good but the HVAC contractors in this area tend to use Amana or Bryant. I think there are still tax credits for furnaces with 95% efficienty or higher. Just wanted to know what you think its getting cold here.
Thank For all your help.

Personally I favor furnaces made by Carrier-Bryant-DayandNight-Payne.

Not because they are better --- all furances are of good quality.

But Carrier makes more furnaces than anyone else. That usually means that if some furnace repairman can fix ANYTHING, he can fix Carrier furnaces, beacuse he sees so many.

For the same reason, a repairman is more likely to carry the part you might need for a Carrier furnace, which often means you can get your furnace fixed on the first trip out on a Friday evening, rather than shopping for a needed part Monday and making a second trip out after that to install the new part.

A recalculation of the load require ahould be done. Things may change with a high efficiency and a smaller furnace will be cheaper and can operate more efficiently. I would definitely and very seriously going with a variable speed fan. I did and I sure am glad I did. - The comfort is improved and on the lower speeds, you do not even know it is running and circulating the air.

I second Concretemasonry of what he said.

Be sure the dealer does a Manual-J on your home.

I went from a 108,000 furnace down to 60k furnace, and the gas bill dropped too!
