I am thinking about replacing my current HVAC system to something of higher efficiency (and just new). What information should i share with you to get a better understanding of what qualities or systems i should look for.

I am in a 2700 sq ft house with an unfinished basement, main floor and upstairs.

My current system is a Trane XR90 (i believe). mfr in 2004.

According to this website, i am zone 6

i dont think my current system is HE, as the intake pipe does not go outside, simple draws from the basement.

Thank you for your input on this.

The more efficient the more fragile,costly

it will be to own, the variable speed DC motors they use to get the 90%+ are $600 rather than $75 as the old AC polarity motors are, sure they save while you run it only to be lost in $300+ induced draft motors, proving devices, $300 ignition modules, $400 circuit boards, etc etc, remember prior to 1078 did you ever think about the furnace? nope and if you did it was a thermocouple for $15 at ACE hardware anyone can install and 30+ yrs service, todays units never last 1/2 that long.
