You can find furnace ratings by brand here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/furnace_ratings.html, but Carrier, Rheem, Trane and York are all good brands with a range of furnaces depending on budget, heating needs, etc.
It is always good advice to think less about the brand--important as it may be--and focus on ensuring you do the install correctly. The cost of the furnace is usually a fraction of the installation cost and no matter how good the furnace is, if it is improperly sized or installed poorly it will run badly, break down often, be less efficient and more costly to run, and have a shorter lifespan.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
