No one here likes Payne or has any feelings about them? I know they only have basic 13 SEER equipment now, but most people don't need anything more.
I personally love how easy they are to install. Lots of adjustability like the carrier/Bryant's they are based on. Have installed at least 80-100 systems in the past few years for clients who don't want to pay for their big brothers and have had absolutely 0 call backs.
The 16 SEER unit they use to make was an unbelievable value. Don't forget to put a sound blanket on the cheaper systems no matter what the manufacturer. They help a lot for very little money.

We use Payne some, mostly 15 SEER. Very little trouble with that brand. The 13 SEER Carrier heat pump is cheaper than the Payne though.
Remember, Air Conditioning begins with AIR.

We've been a York dealer for 30 years, before that carrier. We have drifted from time to time because of sucky distributers but for the most part 75-85% York and 10-15% various nordyne products and a little but of goodman.

We are an American Standard comfort care dealer and between AS and Trane I truely believe they're the best.... This is obviously an opinion but there are rather large statistics to back up my opinion. I do not sell any other brands of actual heating and cooling equipment. Mini split systems: Fujitsu

We sell in order Trane, Lennox, Rheem, Goodman, then in desperation, ICP, and in extreme desperation Nordyne products.

Every company I have worked for has been Carrier, Bryant, then Comfortmaker. Boilers Weil- McLain and Columbia
05-29-2013, 04:43 PM
Trane, Lennox and sometimes Amana

American Standard, Payne.
Up here you must buy into the advertising for Bryant or Trane.
We are primarily a commercial, industrial contractor so residential is a tiny part of our business.
As far as rooftop units go Trane, Carrier, York is my order preference.
Lennox is dead last for me.
They want to sell parts to non Lennox contractors for full list so they can keep their parts.
