    i would think in LA you would not need a lot of heat either so a small single stage furnace might be your best bet ,i would question the need for more than a 60000 btu furnace what did the load calculation call for. the trane xv95 is 2 stage heat with the varible speed motor and the xr95 is 1 heat with a psc motor both are very good furnaces . depending on you gas rate and electric rate a heat pump might be a good option

    Here in Southern California we have replaced a lot of gravity furnaces with Forced air systems. The major hurdle is usually dealing with a house nearly a hundred years old where the home owner wants to keep everything looking "original". We usually have to utilize existing supply vents with their unique cast iron grills and registers. The home owner must decide where the return will be. We remove the asbestos wrapped KD vent pipe and run alumiflex sized according to the load calc.
