Anyone care to share thoughts and opinions on the following two furnace options, assuming roughly equivalent BTU output & price:
1) Bryant 345MAV, 92%, single stage burner, multistage blower
2) American Standard Freedom 80, 80%, two stage burner, multistage blower
The Bryant is more efficient, but A/S is two stage. A/S seems to get pretty high marks for quality and quiet. Furnace will be in a basement, so dealing with the condensate may be a bit more of a hassle.
