No. of Recommendations: 1
In my opinion as a now retired gas appliance repairman, the best choice for a gas furnace is still one of those 92% furnaces, the best balance between efficiency, reliability and economy.

Additionally, the more efficient your house is, the less benefit you get from a high efficiency furnace because the furnace won't run as often.

So if you are in a situation where a high efficiency furnace is cost effective, it is likely even more cost effective to use the extra money to simply add insulation and air sealing and go with a lower efficiency furnace.
