Need advice on new HVAC System


My situation. Need great advice.
I live in Maryland (DC Suburbs)
Have a 1500 square foot townhouse with a finished walk out basement. 3 bedrooms on second level. On the first floor is the kitchen, dining & living room.

My existing 23 year old Comfortmaker gas furnace died this past weekend. Also it had excessive cracks in the heat exchanger.
Anyways. What to do? Where to start with the contractors? What brand?

What % afue? What type of a/c unit?Thanks

Brand doesn't really matter. But the contractor does.

Generally, the ones that promise you the world, are the ones you should stay a way from.

Probably a 95% efficient furnace. Unless your heating bills are already really really low.
