About to choose Trane....some questions
i got a quote for Trane HVAC system for with XR14 + XR80 + 2.5 ton + Thermostat XL800. Then I asked him to upgrade it to XR14 + XL80 + 3 ton + Thermostat XL800 with same price. But he said, he can give it to me with additional $150. Is it worth ? or should I stick with XR80 + 2.5 ton ? How efficien XL80 compare to XR80 ?
We live in Townhouse in SoCal area, it's about 1200 sq ft, 2 stories.
thanks in advance!
You didn't use the $$$ word, did you?
Prepare yourself for an on slot of, "Read the Rules" posts. Now you won't get a straight answer as they will be fixated on the pricing thing.
Personally, I'd go for the highest efficiency... You know the cost of energy is never going down again. How can it? Ya, we all wished it would, but you know it's got rise and rise some more. This little price difference will seem like such a bargain once we get hit with the real cost of energy.
Let me put it to you this way: You buy the cheep stuff and have it installed now. Then the price of energy goes through the roof in a year or so what are you going to do then? Put in new equipment or wished you had.
