    The furnace we are going with is the 60000 btu. I do not have the exact model of the coil but I know it is an American Standard all aluminum coil, I think either platinum or gold series.

    The 60K on high fire likely will be noisy due to the amount of air it will want to move and the duct system of a small house. My house is that size with same size furnace. I keep high shut off except for a fast warmup on a bitter day. I should have gone with a smaller furnace but the brand I have gave me a deal I couldn't refuse!

    I second Baldloonies comments.

    While the XV95 or same identical AmStd furnace is very nice, you will be purchasing a two stg furnace while rarely if ever needing the high stage. Of course that depends on the model thermostat dealer has quoted. You want a nice two stage thermostat to control staging, not timer on control board.

    Why do good dealers continue to install wrong thermostats that shortchange the capabilities of nice HVAC?

    I personally would shop for furnace better sized to your heating load.

    IMO
