Thanks for the input. I'm still having a lot of trouble deciding on what to go with. I would like to get the extra seer, but the cost is higher for the Trane. In fact, the Trane and Lennox price is the same. The Amana is cheaper. I'm still wondering about 95% efficient furnaces because we have some neighbors who have them and enjoy them. Do you think condensing furnaces are worth it down here?
The problem is, I don't want to mismatch brands due to the fact you won't receive the full efficiency of the system.
You're Best Bet will likely be to save your money for another day.
You might be able to save $40 a year with a new furnace.
What is your electric rate$?
