Before purchasing a new furnace, you need to decide what type of furnace you need. There are three types of furnaces: single-stage, two-stage or a modulating furnace. A single - stage furnace is either always on or off. This means that it's always pumping at the hottest air at the highest velocity possible. It is quite noisy though and it is known to be very inconsistent with it's temperatures So if you have a finished basement or thin walls, this may be a deterrent for you. On the flip side, it is on the less expensive side.
A two-side furnace has a two speed setting (high or low) and is normally on the lower end of the velocity spectrum unless it's especially cold in which you can crank it up to what your heart desires. It is more expensive than the single-stage but you're paying for more reliable temperature swings and less noise. If you're more on the energy efficient side of things, the modular furnace would be a good choice. These models usually only run at a 40% capacity and increase by .5% if the thermostat calls for it. Temperatures stay consistent throughout the house and the noise is kept to a minimum. As you'd expect, the modular furnace is also the most expensive so keep that in mind.
