Carrier Infinity vs. Lennox and Trane
I am trying to get a good picture of the design and build quality differences (if any) between the top of the line Carrier (Infinity series), Trane (XR and XY series) and the Lennox (XC series). All the quotes are coming in about the same, with 2 stag thermostat and 5" media filter.
Main concern is reliability and longevity! Any words of wisdom from the field? Thanks.

Which Trane unit are you comparing to the carrier and Lennox? The XR or XL? XR 15 is quiet but the XL 15,16 & 20 will be quieter due to design. You are looking at (3) great brands that all have pros and cons. If the prices are all the same, I would go with the contractor that you feel the most comfortable with.
Which ones did a load cal. On your home? That would also help you narrow down the selection. Also what about warranty offered? Did any or all present extended warr. For the equipment? I sale Trane and Belive it is one of the most reliable pieces of equipment when installed properly but again carrier and Lennox are good systems as well.

It's not the Brand with the fewest repairs-It's all in the install!!! Attention to detail and using the best materials!

I know at my company that if we install a system that it will be done with 100% percent as I pride myself on doing right and my installers no this. So if there going to do it, it better be right or there will h!!! To pay. Install is 85 - 90 percent of the install is in how they install the new system.
