    Go with the higher efficiency unit whichever brand you choose and opt in for the additional 10-year parts and labor coverage, some of the parts are two to three times (sometimes even more) the cost of the extended warranty to replace. If sizing is appropriate look at the payback difference to upgrade to the dual capacity units, besides the additional efficiency you get increased comfort and indoor air quality through greater humidity control and increased filtration.

    Also think about replacing the furnaces at the same time (even if there isn't anything technically or functionally wrong with them at this time). It will cost you more to replace them in the future (prices continuously rise w/many manufacturers raising prices in the next month or two ahead of the typical increases with the new model year increase), plus your contractor may have to redo some of the sheet metal transitions to fit the furnaces later and you'll get the increased efficiency from the system now.

    If you decide to keep your existing furnaces still go with the higher efficiency units. You'll lose a little efficiency now, but will have the cooling side of the system you want in place when you do replace the furnaces with variable-speed models and there are AHRI match-ups for the 15 SEER units without a variable-speed furnace (ARI - 1422151 - SEER 14.25 - EER 11.7).
