Reading and reading and reading... Want to make the best decision for me, so will try to keep questions simple.
For starters, this is a heating furnace only. No heat pump, no AC, so please don't offer that info. Too many other threads are hard to decipher the heating info because they're outweighed by SEER and tonnage and cooling coils, and...and...and...well, you get the point.
I had never heard of modulating furnaces until this forum. Initial reading sounds like they're the greatest thing since sliced bread....almost. Then I start reading about:
- blower rates may not be sufficient.
- you can/can't run setbacks on mods.
- you need/don't need special tstats.
- mods are/are not quieter than two-stage.
So, should I only consider a modulating furnace or not?
Okay, gentlemen....start yer engines!
