    I am about to buy a house but the owners are to replace the furnaces (2). I live in the southeast and the repair/installation company is planning on installing a 80% efficient Bryant Furnace. They said that there was not really any need to upgrade to a 90% efficient model unless I just wanted to spend the extra money (we have to pay for the upgrade, but not the replacement). Is there anything I should know about Bryant units? I heard 80% effecient units are fine in milder climates. Are there any other thoughts on the subject? Thank you.

    I assume these are gas furnaces. Do want to stay with gas? Is there a possability with changing to a heatpump? Bryant furnaces a good, I used to install them. The price of gas though is a problem in itself. If you have other gas appliances in the house and dont mind the added cost then stick with Bryant. They good equipment and their 80% furnaces work well.

    gas upgrade not need !!!!

    heat pump in the south east,no need for gas. also like what has already been said replace enitre system,cooling will be the most energy consumption. not sure what area of the southeast but go w/ a minimum of 12 seer.
