    Cool Comparison

    I have to replace my Rheem furnace. I have 2 estimates: 1) is for a Rheem Model No. RGTM-07ERBGS , two stage with ECM Blower motor, 75000 BTU downflo propane furnace. This also includes a new A-Coil n cabinet to existing air conditioner which is a high efficiency Tappan whole house air condition.
    The 2nd is for a Trane XV 95, two stage variable speed, 80000 BtU downflo propane furnace. They do not
    new A- Coil.

    My questions:
    How do these units compare with each other?
    What would be the unit you would choose to heat approximately 2000 sq. ft.?

    I am at a loss as to what to do. One unit is quite expensive although it can receive 50% off with government funding. The other unit does not receive any funding but is more reasonably priced n includes the A-coil and complete installation including new propane line n tank.
    I am a widow, on a fixed income, who wants not to worry about heating n cooling my home.
    Thanks for your help

    Why the new coil? Was the Tappan put on an old coil and they want to put in something that matches better?

    The new coil is because the previous furnace was an upflow and it's being replaced with a downflow unit.
