45-50 btu's per sq. ft. is a rule of thumb for your location. Windows, insulation, exposure, so many factors will apply. So with that in mind I would expect to see something around 94,500 to 105,000 Btu. If you have proper insulation in walls and ceilings, well insulated windows and doors and proper infiltration protection your existing furnace may be oversized.


Do you want it your way or the right way?

Its the preferred series 95i variable speed. You can compare them on the bryant website.

In my case the installer was up against lennox and york. A couple of things that won him the bid was the Rebate program offered by the Feds. It made a furnace with a variable speed mandatory for the biggest rebate. Plus Bryant offers a 10 year parts warranty and I negotiated 10 year labour as well.

I live about an 1- 1.5 north/East of Toronto.

sorry for the delayed response. but now I have one more question.... is there a big difference between the bryant evolution 986ta and the york tmv9? The reason I ask is I was quoted close to the same price (the bryant 100 less). I have a verbal agreement with the york company since yesterday but now the bryant came back with the evolution series as an option. I plan on keeping my word with the york company unless there is a big reason why I should back out and go with the bryant. FYI the bryant is offering 200 back and the york is offering 200 back or 10yr labour (I would take the labour).

I am not replacing my a/c at this time.

Evolution is a slightly higher end unit. But unless your getting the Evolution control, your not really gaining anything.

80,000BTU input 96% efficient is probably a tad more heat then you need. But York doesn't make a 70,000 furnace. So the 80,000 is a good choice. A 60,000 input would be a bit border line, unless you made a lot of improvements to the homes envelope.
