Need to replace our furnace system

I should have done a lot more research when it was time to replace the gas oil furnace in my home, then unfortunately, the furnace quit in the middle of December, when the outside temperature was down to twenty-six degrees. There was no way my family could go without heat. I was in a hurry to either get the oil furnace repaired or install a new 1. Since the original gas furnace was over twenty years old & had been threatening to fail for a actually long time, I decided it wasn’t worth fixing. With the rush to get a new oil furnace installed, there was no opportunity to look into makes & models, read reviews for the more than 2 chances or order something that would take awhile to arrive. I needed to accept whatever the local Heating & A/C corporation had available. I assumed the company would suggest a quality oil furnace & regularly size & install it. They unquestionably sold myself and others the cheapest model on the market & simply picked a oil furnace of the exact same size as the old 1, then over the last twenty years, I’ve made a lot of improvements to my home. I’ve added insulation to the walls, ceilings & attic.  I’ve replaced all of the windows with thermal pane, Energy Star rated alternatives. I’ve made it a point to carefully weatherstrip, caulk & seal up every crack & leak which might allow energy to escape, and my efforts have significantly reduced the heat gain/heat loss of the home. The Heating & A/C corporation should have done calculations & installed a much smaller oil furnace. Instead, I paid more for a giant oil furnace that heats up the house so abruptly, it never achieves maximum efficiency levels.
