Furnace

There are so many furnace threads and so many opinions. How does one actually pick a good furnace?

I’m leaning towards the Goodman GMVC96. We have a 2 storey, 4 bedroom house. Currently have a 100,000 btu (not high efficiency) that is 19 years old.

It really just comes down to what features of a furnace and brand you're most comfortable with paired with a company with good reviews, good follow up, and clean installations. Some people like Goodman because they're less money for cheaper parts, some people like big named brands like Lennox or Carrier. The reality is you'll very likely be happy with your decision if you're comfortable with your brand and installer. The GMVC96 would be a fine furnace to put into your home as long as the company you have doing it has a nice warranty, the price is right, and isn't a fly-by-night kinda guy.

Thank you. I am happy to hear you recommend the Goodman. I know in the past they were not as good but I feel the quality is there now.
