My 20 year old furnace broke down. I want a new one. I would like some advice on the type, efficiency, capacity, and brand I should get.

I did some Googling and understand that efficiency (AFUE) and capacity (BTU) are two most important factors. My house is one floor 3-bedroom, 2 baths, ranch, 1600 square feet. Have plan to do extension in the future to add 1-2 more rooms and expand the kitchens, but not immediately. I am in California, and thus have a very mild, dry climate, with a temperature swing from day to night

Hello, Assuming you will be using a gas furnace, I would suggest a sealed combustion rather than "atmospheric" unit. Further you can benefit by installing a furnace with proportional control...
