I am currently in the process of having my 1991 model year contractor grade propane furnace replaced. I am upgrading to a high efficiency model since propane is not going to be getting cheaper anytime soon either here in California or anywhere else for that matter. My question has to do with the location of my furnace.
Currently my return and furnace is in the attic which then pushes the heated air to the basement to the distribution network. Two contractors have told me that the furnace should be relocated to the basement, while the third told me that where it currently resides is fine. My specfic question is whether or not it is worth the extra money (XXX) to move the furnace to the basement, or is this a wasted expense and the unit would be fine where it is.
Thanks in advance....
