Excellent point. The dealers that let price be their one and only motivator, will always seek out the low end. And, not only in product but service, workmanship, etc. What is ironic about the mandates in efficiency, it is going to create a higher $ market, no doubt, and these "bottom feeders" may actually have to compete on "our level." I say, "come on guys, but be ready to clean up your acts!" If they are on our playing field, but can't perform, they won't last.

the fact is, the lower priced equipment will always have higher failure rates due to install problems. the big majority of this equipment is put in by the low bidder. low bidders will give you an install of lesser quality, resulting in future problems. [/B]
