The heat-exchanger on my current furnace is cracked and I
need to replace it. I am considering this furnace. The
salesman from the local natural gas utility company carries
Ruud, however does not carry the Modulating furnace and
recommends the Two-stage instead. We live in Minnesota and
have had two heat-calcs done on our home both of which
recommended a 100,000 btu furnace. Any thoughts on how
these two furnaces compare?

if he doesn't carry the ruud mod, call a local ruud dealer who does. the 2 stage is fine (and what i always recommend as a base furnace) but you cannot beat the mod.
just remember, more bells and whistles equals more initial outlay of cash, but the utmost in comfort.

I agree. If you want the best in comfort, go with the Rheem/Ruud Modular furance..
How many sq ft is the house?? 100,000 is pretty big.

Lot of good competition in the a/c side of this business but nothing in my opinion compares to the Rheem/Ruud Modular furnace.“I am glad that I paid so little attention to good advice; had I abided by it I might have been saved from some of my most valuable mistakes.” - Edna St. Vincent Millay

If you do decide on the two stage its still a pretty good furnace too, lacks an ECM but otherwise well built and better than what you had.
