    if the 1500 is not a major consideration, go with trane coil. it is a better coil and anything ADP or aspen makes in my opinion.

    I would still be interested to find out if there was any dye in the outdoor unit somewhere. Did they even check? I personally don't have a big problem with dye, but Trane does not recommend it.

    it is the ozone you are smelling. Trane has it where the dealer can adjust it for people who are sensitive to that smell. The unit will still work fine.
