HVAC Furnace question

My Furnace is 75,000 BTUs. What would happen if I had a furnace installed that is 115,000 BTUs?

HVAC Furnace question

Most likely it wouldn't heat your house very well. As it would lock out on its high limit temp because it requires a lot more air flow then your 75,000 BTU. And your duct work wasn't sized for a 115.000 BTU furnace.

HVAC Furnace question

Why do you think you need 50% more heating in the home? Are you having trouble heating the home?
