I'm considering replacing my existing 2-stage Lennox HS21-060-1P with a 2-stage Lennox XC16. The HS21 came with the house. I'm not sure how common it is in the Kansas City area for contractors to install 2-stage systems. Anyone have an idea of how common this may be?
I'm wondering if I would even notice the difference in comfort and lower humidity. I have a 2yr old Lennox SLP98V furnace, so I'm sure that will help with humidity removal over a standard furnace. If I don't purchase the XC16 I'll go with the XC14. Any opinions on of a two-stage system is worth the extra money in my geographic area?
