Advice on New Furnace Size??? too big?
hello, i was just wondering if any one had any input for me.
my uncle owns a lot of houses, he buys/sells/rents...he sold one before he put in a brand new heater he had, so he sold the new heater to be for 500.00. its a Heil 90k BTU.
the problem is this:
my house is 1500 sq feet, plus a finished basement, which i dont care how cold/hot the basement is. we currently have a 70k BTU furnace.
today the heating guy came for an estimate to install the furnace with an estimate of 849.00. he said when he saw the heater that it was too big for the house, which after reading online, i see that it is correct information...but im wondering if it will still be okay and i should go ahead with the install?
i dont want huge eletric bills, or for it to catch fire or break all the time from cycling too much. i was told by another heating person last year, that the old furnace wasnt big enough, but looking online and after today, i think he might of been wrong?
any advice/suggestions/comments would be greatly appricated, so i know if to cancel the appointment and look at a correct size furnace. (sorry so long winded)
