The short answer is the one that is properly sized to your home and installed. There are a number of very good furnace/AC brands such as Goodman, Carrier, Trane, Ruud, and others. You can find the top rated AC units on this site here:

While reliability and so on are important to consider the place where you will spend the bulk of your money and get the biggest bang for your buck is on the installation and ensuring the system is properly sized to your home. The reason is that all furnaces must meet certain government mandated standards so there is generally little variation between brands in terms of reliability and function.
Where you may find some difference is customer service, features, and the warranty.
Despite these variables, the best thing you can do is find an HVAC tech who is certified and that you trust and believe will do the best job for you.
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.
