    What color is it? ;-)

    Seriously, more information is required. It's sort of like asking "I'm thinking about buying a Ford- any feedback?" You don't want to buy a 5- liter Mustang if what you need is an F-150.

    The first thing is to figure out what your whole-house heat load is and pick a model that isn't ridiculously oversized for the load (as most are), with sufficient air handler to work with the existing ducts. Efficiency-wise there isn't much of a hit from being ridiculously oversized, but comfort and noise-wise it does.

    Then there's the matter of how much local distributor/installer support there is for the equipment in question (probably not a problem for Bryant, in most of the US), and any reliablitiy track record you can dig up on the exact model you're considering.

    Installer suggested Bryant model 925s. We had 3 estimates from different installers and the first one sold Trane the second sold Carrier and third Bryant. I work nights and am going to have to get to sleep. I will get back with you tomorrow. Thanks

    The 925S comes in eight different sizes, and is a single-stage (not a 2-stage or modulating), which makes getting the sizing right even more important for optimizing comfort.

    Your ZIP code, your current furnace's input/output BTU numbers and a mid winter gas bill with the EXACT meter reading dates & fuel use should be enough information to ballpark it on sizing.

    Not a Bryant fan but more important is the availability of parts should the unit crap out. Unless you have back up heat, its a bad idea to buy equipment that is not sold and serviced locally.
