I have to replace the 15 year old heat pump system in my house. Currently it is a 2.5 ton unit with a 10kw emergency heat coil. Seen the calculations and it shoud be between a 2.5 and 3.
I am looking at two brands and a couple installers. The installers come highly recommended. Do good work and are up to date on training. My question is I am comparing the York Latitude with the Trane XR13 and XL14i. I can get the warranty extened on the Latitude so it is like the XL14i. But in these machines what are the differences of the coils and the compressor construction. Also in our rural area we experience numerous power outages. Short less than a second to days. In the designs which one will be more forgiving mechanically and electrically.
