    Re: Update

    I agree; an honest answer.

    If the lines are accessible (run outside, thru-wall, etc.) then I would replace them. Otherwise, ask the dealer if he will include them in the 10 year warranty.

    Re: Decision closer

    If price is an issue consider a Trane XR13 paired with the VS air handler. If you are confident in the heat gain calculation then either size will work - but verify that the duct work is OK at 3.5 T.
