How many other professional members agree with the above quote? Would you consider Rheem R410a systems as "designed from the ground up for R-410a"?

As for me personally, if I was installing a system in my own home today, it would not be an R-410a system.
I won't condidder R-410a equipment for myself untill both the outdoor and indoor units are designed from the ground up for R-410a.
To my knowledge, there are only 2 pieces of equipment on the market currently that were specifically designed for R-410a. Trane makes a 4 ton and a 5 ton air handler with coil that has small diameter tubing and a PSC motor in a new style blower housing.
All the rest of the equipment that is currently being used for R-410a is basicly just R-22 equipment with different compressors and metering devices.
I know Trane has some changes in the works, and rummor here is that Carrier has some new stuff coming out next year. I would assume that other manufacturers do also.[/B]
