    Actually decided to go w/ the Lennox XP17 XP17-030-230 with CBX32MV-036 variable speed air handler and the iComfort stat. thanks to rebates, it was a super deal from a reputable installer.

    Thanks...

    This is very helpful! I was wondering if there was a website like this. Baltimore is very close as I'm in N. VA.

    Thank you!

    The one I went with, the 2nd, higher efficiency, option is affordable and can be compared to option 1 simply because of a massive rebate from the manufacturer. Our state is also offering a rebate...

    Wow, impressive. Thank you very much! I knew it would be a small percentage. I'm just looking for added justification to go w/ a higher end unit. I made that decision and I will indeed move forward....

    Thank you!

    Yes, you're right. Seal windows, add insulation, etc...Assume all things equal and talk purely about efficiency numbers from the units.

    Doesn't sound like quantifying this is possible?

    Thanks...

    Generally, I agree with your comment though the price difference is low after all rebates/discounts are applied. That's the reason why the question is purely about efficiency because the cost is not...
  8. how to quantify in dollars the differences in efficiency numbers?

    I have 2 options:

    option 1: SEER 15, EER 12.5, HSPF 8.5

    option 2: SEER 16.2, EER 13.5, HSPF 9.0

    is there anyway to translate the efficiency into dollars? does anyone have a ballpark figure?...

    Hello all,

    Interesting that the higher, more favorable numbers are the correct ones. It's usually the opposite.
    Thank you all!
  12. Same unit, different efficiency numbers...???

    Hi all,

    I'm breaking this question off on a new thread since it's very specific.

    I have 2 proposals for basically the exact same configuration, at least in the heat pump compressor and air...

    I definitely understand that a bad install on a good product is as worse as a bad product.

    My dilemma is that the American Standard is substantially more expensive than the Carrier while the...

    Thanks for the advice on Rheem. It came in at a decent price but not as "cheap" as you think. I'm guessing Northern VA is a bit more expensive all around.

    I'm in the process of doing a spreadsheet...
