The air conditioning market is evolving to higher efficiencies by using two-stage and variable speed condensers. A number of these systems use a different way of talking to the thermostat and furnace by using a "different language" to communicate with each other.
By purchasing a basic heater that only works with your present air conditioner you will be limiting your options when your air conditioner needs replacement. New "communicating" furnaces can talk to your present condenser but old-technology furnaces will not be able to talk to newer "communicating" condensers.
Be sure to consider the air conditioning system you would prefer when it is time to change the outside condenser and purchase a heater that will be compatible with your plan. While you're at it, ask Surgi's about the cost savings of replacing your inside evaporator coil when you change your heater...it's all part of the plan.
