Furnace size selection


I've had a few beers myself tonight, and one Jello Shot.

I think the last time I was on Sixth Street some months ago my brother who lives up there (and is now married, again) and his band played at some club. It was cool, the stage was up on the roof/patio. I helped my brother unload his drum kit and while waiting the hour until they got to go on, I went a few business' down to The Black Cat? and got a tattoo on my shoulder.

It reads, "Keep Austin Weird."

That was my 24th tat, I think. I'd have to count again, not sure I can count that high. I think I only have ten fingers, thumbs included.

I really appreciate all the comments. Some of you seem to be suggesting the 80,000 is best, while others would lean toward 60,000, given the limited info I could provide in a quick post. Since the sales rep I'm working with seems extremely knowledgeable, I'm going to discuss with him further. He showed me several things the other four reps hadn't noticed, and everything made perfect sense to me. I think my best approach is to simply trust his expertise on sizing as well.

Thanks for your help. A toast to each of you - I'll join you for that beer!!

I got the 80,000. I haven't had to run it much, due to the beautiful Minnesota fall we're having but am happy to finally have a working furnace. It was so quiet, I could hardly tell it was running! Thanks again for the feedback - you helped me be more comfortable with this decision!

all good information to consider and all done well, however as was stated if duct work not sized right all this fancy equiptment will be wasted because you will not have a balanced system Iam just saying

Your point makes sense. I'm confident that everything's set up properly now! To those of you that are contractors, let me share a tip. The company that earned my business was the one (out of 5) that I believed could solve the problems I was experiencing - rather than just selling me a furnace. They were determined to figure out the root cause of my issues, so I wouldn't risk having the same problems resurface.
