    Guys,

    Thanks for all the input. I opted for the XT80 Trane furnace with matching 3ton coil and the lowest heat BTU rating I could get.

    All of the HVAC estimates were based on finger in the air as none would run the calc unless I committed to them before I got the final bid. For my 2nd floor 1600SF in hot Atlanta there is no way that...

    Guys,

    Thanks so much for all the input. I think coordinatsales had it pretty much nailed about blowers vs heat BTU's. The furnace equip specs (Trane in my case) limits the blower-heat btu choices...

    Yup, the variable speed is the way to go but am not staying in this house much longer. I think the XT80 is two stage but not a VS.

    Again Mark Many Thanks!

    The XR80 "B" furnace is the exact one that I have decided on. I shot down the XB version as the installer agreed that the XB80 noise would be very noticable when placing...

    thanks Mark,

    The XR80 "B" series sound like the way to go. My concern is more about cooling-CFM-blower motor performance, that's why I thought the 47K BTU furnace output would be ok for the 1600SF...

    thanks Mark,

    Had two quotes one with ADP coil and one with Trane coil. The TXV is important for me even though I will eventually only be installing the Trane XR13 3 ton condensor. Another...

    Thanks Mark,

    Anyone have comments on the coil-cooling efficiency difference between a 14-5" vs 17.5" furnace-coil width? Reason is the existing furnace-coil is the smaller 14.5" cabinet. There are no clearance...
