I recently received two proposals to replace my heat pump. In doing research, I found that the heatpump is discontinued.
Note: I am not asking for prices....
Outdoor unit: 4TWX5030A1
Indoor unit: TAM7A0C36H31
Outdoor unit: 4TWX5030A1000A
Indoor unit: TAM7AC83H21SA

Now it seems that both outside units are discontinued. What is annoying is that I asked before proposal if their systems are new. Both mentioned that yes that usually a month old or late 2011.
1. Can I insist on using an active system? Like using 4TWX5030B1 instead?
2. Is this a non issue? I take it like buying a car, newer models have improvements compared to previous year model. It will be nice to know that beforehand.
3. Can someone find out about the air handler in the second proposal. I can't find it.
4. Do you pros put out discontinued systems? Isn't this wrong and unethical of customer is not told about it?
