    When you finnish the basement, have your system zoned, you shouldn't need abigger furnace that way.

    Also, when it does become time to replace it, you should be able to stay with the same size furnace.

    I'm also a Baltimore boy. That unit is currently oversized and will do fine handling the basement.

    Do yourself a favor and check the temperature differential between the air going into the unit (as close to the return air opening where the filter should be) and the air leaving the unit with a thermometer that is not in line with the heat exchanger.

    Better still, pay a contractor to check out your furnace and require temperature rise data, draft pressure data and gas pressure in and out data.

    OK. I will have someone take a look at it. I'm not sure who to call at this point as I would be looking for someone who really knows what he is doing as opposed to someone who just "gets her done" as they say.

    I'm just off of Rt 91 in Finksburg.

    Thanks
