Need Help Choosing a New Trane Heat Pump
I bought a home in South Carolina with a Trane Air Handler - Model 2TEC3F60A1000AA. It is only 6 years old. I need to replace the 12 year old Weatherking heat pump that it is attached to. Should I go with a Trane Heat Pump (5 Ton)- and if so what model would be a good match with that air handler. I realize that I would also have the R22 converted to R410A.
The home is 2600 square feet.
Also - what current model Tran air handler is that unit similar to?
I would go with the "dry" unit, the one that comes empty and gets filled with R22. Best match for that air handler. I personally don't like putting a different refrigerant in a coil. Probably 2TWB3060 for a model #.
2TEC3F60A is a CURRENT model, except for R-22 versus R-410A.
