    Ductwork and furnace in attic, bedroom in basement, does the ductwork have any manual balancing damper to maybe help push more air to that long distance going to the basement?

    3 ton blower don’t mean anything if the ductwork is not sized correctly to move that amount of air.

    Have whoever you hire check the static pressure to see if it’s within manufacturers specifications. All that info along with the temperature rise across the HX are found in the furnace install guide.

    He can download the install guide of that furnace easy enough as Goodman gives a lot of information to the public unlike some other brands. Hopefully he has the basic tools to check the static pressure and knows how to do it.

    It would be great if the temperature rise across the HX is within manufacturers specifications ( found in the install guide ) as that helps in longevity of the HX to a degree and helps prevents chance of tripping a high limit control.
