Payne Vs Trane


Hello
I am looking to install a propane fired gas furnace and at the moment I am to decide between Payne, the model # is PG9MTAV060100 and a Trane XV95

The installation is for a Canadian property just north of Toronto that is well insulated and an approx area of 1900sq. ft.
Hope to be able to get some constructive opinions or experiences please thanks in advance
Alec

Do a heat loss calculation to make sure you get the right size:Load Calculator

I hope you are taking a permit out for it and getting a licensed gas fitter to do the gas and inspect it. DIY furnaces are very uncommon in Canada, especially Ontario. The rules/regulations are very strict and the insurance companies expect permits to be taken and units inspected.

Same input BTU's, but the Trane is a 4 ton A/C drive, and teh Payne is a 5 ton.

What size A/C do you have.

That Payne 5 ton blower is a bit big for a 2 ton A/C.
The Trane 4 ton should be able to slow down enough for a 2 ton.
