Trane XB13 + 2TEC = Good System OR just bottom of the line?
I am in the process of getting quotes to replace my good old York 4 ton (15+ years old). I am on a VERY tight budget so I am limited to entry level sytems.
I have gotten a few quotes on the Trane XB13 Condenser (2TTB3048A) and 2TEC Air Handler (2TEC3F48A1000A).
I am about to pull the trigger on this system but I have read mixed reviews on the XB13 being too loud (which is of no concern to me because it will be located too far away from the home to hear anyway) and not reliable/robust, is this true? Also, how do the 2TEC air handlers compare to other air handlers?
Am I better off just going with a different brand that might have a better system for around the same cost?
Thanks for any input and/or guidance.
