What would be a good replacement furnace for a 24 year old Carrier 58PAV, 17 1/2 inch cabinet width, side air return? Its a very tight fit in the utility room, so the replacement cannot be much bigger.Post created: 2018-01-27 Type of Equipment: Furnace Views: 5

This furnace was installed new in 1994. Over the past 10 years we have replaced the ignitor twice. On the latest service check, the technician recommended replacement. I'd like a recommendation for a replacement furnace that will fit in the same location. the utility room is 40" wide. The Carrier Model 58PAV is 17 1/2" wide. The side cold air return duct is 12" wide, so its a pretty tight fit. To install anything wider than 19", we would have to remove the water heater that sits in front of the furnace.
