    Two Systems or One Zoned

    We are replacing our current furnace and AC and are having trouble making a decision. What would you recommend? Here’s the scoop:

    Current system, 1987 vintage:
    50k BTU Gas Furnace
    75k BTU Gas Furnace (zoned into 2 zones)
    2- 2.5 ton ACs
    2 humidifiers
    Mastertrol controller

    Option 1:
    60k BTU 3-stage, 95% Bryant
    80k BTU 3-stage, 95% Bryant
    2 - 2.5 ton 15 SEER Bryant 165
    4” pleated Filter
    3 - Bryant Evolution stats
    2 – April Air 600 Humidifiers
    Use existing Mastertrol controller


    Option 2: (single system zoned into 3 zones)
    135k BTU variable capacity 95% Lennox Signature G71MPP
    6 ton 16 SEER two-stage Lennox XC-16
    Pleated filter HC16-10 Lennox
    3- IAQ stats
    2 – April Air 600 Humidifiers
    3-zone Honeywell controller

    Difference in cost is $ less for option 2.

    I use two systems in my house.
    Dump the april aire and go with a Honeywell true steam for humidification though.
    The Bryant also has a dehumidification option that is nice.
    I do not know about the Lennox systems, someone will be by to tell you about them.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.
