View Full Version : Help...New AC and Furnace needed
09-06-2009, 02:19 AM
I just talked to 2 AC service techs. they are recommending replacing my AC unit as well as my furnace. They both recommened Day and Night. The both claimed that it was Carrier with a different label. I know that they must be dealers and must get some sort of commission so I dont know if they are correctly representing the brand. So my questions are:
1. Is day and night the same as carrier (i.e in terms of quality and performance)?
2. Has anyone installed day and night units and if so, how have they performed?
Please respond soon since i will need to replace in the next 2 days.

Were any legit reasons given?
Day and night is ICP which is owned by the parent company which also owns carrier. (united technologies)

Well first my furnace is over 20 yrs old and has some leaks in air and the water pipes. We have repaired it several times for various reasons. At this point i think it would be better to invest in a new unit rather than trying to fix it.
I also replaced my compressor in the last couple of years and seems to be going bad. There is a loud noise everytime it starts. It is not cooling and is leaking freon as fast as we can put it in.
They are telling not to invest good money into bad. I do agree considering the age of the units and poor quality to date.
So, i just am not sure of the brand(day and night) since I cannot find any reviews.

i would like to know what units are the best most efficient, i have a report to do in school on a heat pump and indoor unit.

Like Carrier, Day & Night has 2 lines, the low end and the premium. If you can afford it, get the premium of what every brand you buy. You can get into bells & whistles like 2 stage equipment, variable speed motors, etc. I'd say ICP is the same quality as Carrier, what it lacks is the high end control: Bryant's Evolution and Carrier's Infinity. Want that? ICP can't do it and neither can most of the rest of the market. Trane just started in communicating controls, Rheem is too and Nordyne's IQ drive control is pretty darn slick. But anyway, if the dealer you trust recommends D&N, go for it. A good dealer is the key!
