This is hard to say because it depends on how well the house is insulated, the type of winter the area experiences, the efficiency of the furnace, and a number of other variables. The best way to size a furnace is to have a certified HVAC contractor come and do a Manual J load calculation.
Also, it is really important to get this right because over or under sizing a furnace can cause it to operate inefficiently and lead to break downs and other issues.
