    As usual, I agree with Baldloonie on the 60K XV80 and pair with HW VP IAQ for dehumidify on demand.

    I agree with what's been said. You need to verify both the room's supply and return are working. But your description also suggests that room is getting its heat from outside the room. You need to...

    I agree with Baldloonie. The Lennox is low end, made South of the Border. You should recheck the condenser model number in the Carrier quote.

    To get dehumidify on demand, at the minimum you need a var speed air handler along with Carrier/Bryant Edge Thermidistat.

    I would recommend the following air handler...

    For DC, definitely a 95%+ eff furnace for downstairs.

    And yes, I meant to say Preferred series over the Legacy series.

    Preferred and Performance identical.

    What is your location?

    Unless nat gas hookup is right around the corner, I think an 80% eff furnace fueled by propane is a poor choice. Location though dictates that decision.

    For your location, I think it's less important about whether condenser is single stage or two stage and way more important that new system and new thermostat allow for independent DOD, dehumidify on...

    XT series Trane or AmStd would be a good choice whether 80% or 95% efficiency. Call a dealer in your area and get a price range. I assume no AC is needed or included.

    Good Luck...

    Considering your location and if nat gas service is not in the picture, I would consider going all electric.

    This might entail some modification to your home's electric service.

    If you live close to water as it appears you do, then you might consider a condenser with a special seacoast shield from the brand you select.

    Charleston, a very harsh environment for HVAC.
