Does the condensor (compressor, outside unit, whatever) have to match the inside air handler? By match I mean say for example the same brand? I've heard the SEER rating has to match, but otherwise?
Basically we were supposed to get a Goodman unit with a ten year limited warranty, but a different company wound up using a RUUD which is the same as the condensor, but has a much shorter warranty. The reason given was to match the outside unit.
