OK, I could use some feedback on a home A/C system. I am going to be replacing the 20 year old unit in my home. I'm getting bids on 3.0 ton units. Trane is the brand that most contractors in my area (Tampa, FL.) are pushing. I've been trying to do some reading on the internet to inform myself - I really know nothing about home A/C. I've been reading about Rheem home A/C and thier use of scrol compressors and straight fin coils vs. Trane's use of spine fins.
Here's my dilemma. When I ask the contractors if they can get a Rheem unit, the typical response that I get is - Why do you want to do that? Then I get a statement to the effect that Trane is better. No one seems willing to say what makes Trane a better unit, just that it is. No I realize that there are pros and cons to both units.
But I am just soliciting some feedback from forum members on the validity of these contractors statements regarding the superiority of Trane vs. Rheem home A/C units.
Thanks in advance for any replies - Erich
