    I have a small 2 story semi-deatached about 950 sq. ft.
    and have been told a 2 stage variable is the way to go.
    However the sales rep did admit that it may never go to the 2nd stage as my heat loss is only 20,000 btu and the 1st stage is 37,000
    Am I crazy to pay the big bucks for a top of the line system like this?

    No Variable speed will keep your utility bills low, the air filtered better,extremely quiet, more even temperatures upstairs and downstairs.

    If you want a variable speed furnace, find a smaller one. Oversizing is a mistake. Mine is oversized and I might as well turn off the high fire (usually it is anyway) as it isn't needed.

    The variable speed blower is nice but a very small single stage furnace will have a low blower speed too for a thou less.
