There are plenty of calculators out there you can google. I just did a quick one at 864 sq feet with 8 foot ceilings and normal insulation in our area's weather factored in and it called for 50K+ some change.

Between the Bryant and the Carrier I would now purchase the customer service of the local HVAC install place. I wouldn't worry too much about the brand. Though I would compare the warranties.
The warranties are identical. 10 year parts, lifetime on heat exchangers. Although, I have heard that yeah, it's a life time on the ORIGINAL heat exchanger.. That they will only give you one free one. That seems to be pretty universal for all of them.

My wife I put them compared side by side, and excluded the prices, and we both more comfortable with the Carrier. I was just interested in others opinions.
