    Just missed the 95s by a few months and was never told...

    Great question!

    If you google my username, hopefully you will find my tons of responses as a homeowner on this subject. First, let me say that the mod furnace design seems to be the most logical and appropriate...

    you know more about furnaces now than you ever did before.

    mod versus 2-stage...

    Based on the pros that have come to visit the big difference is:

    two stage runs at 65% and 100% with a low heat output and a high heat output. I did not realize that it is good to look at both as...
