I hear what you're saying, but I did indicate in the title of my post that I was questioning the difference between a Trane XR13 and a Rheem Classic 13? I understand that the Trane XR13 is a mid-line unit. Is this not the case with the Rheem Classic 13?Originally posted by kevinmac
First you cannot speak manufacturer to manufacturer. You must speak model of one manufacturer against the model of another manufacturer. Each manufacturer makes a value line up to their high end line. So without knowing what the contractor proposed and what you asked of in a Rheem, there is no debate.
For instance if the contractor is giving you a price on the upper line of Rheem and it is the same price as the low end models of Trane, well then I would go Rheem!

I have been using the search feature and this is a great site for information. There certainly do seem to be strong alliances with certain brands.
