My gas forced air furnace has a single speed fan.  It cycles on and off quite a bit.  It is noisy.  Does anyone have an opinion on whether I would get less noise, less cycling and more efficiency if I switched it out for a variable speed unit?

Of the top of my head I'd say "yes" to all of those if you used a variable speed unit, but if you want to get lots of other, more informed opinions, post your question on the Breaktime forum (go to the green box at the top of this page and click on "Breaktime" right after "Other Taunton Sites:"). There's a category of discussion there that's called "Energy, Heating, Insulation"--that might be a good place to post it.
