I have written before for information and I have finally purchased the following: an Amana 95% efficiency furnace with a lifetime heat exchanger warranty and a Ruud Zephyr 2-ton, 10 SEER a/c. The same company installed both. Since they couldn't track down a 10 SEER coil, I believe they used a 13 SEER coil.
My question is this. You said to buy the middle model-no construction merchandise. The salesman said that Ruud is a good unit, but when I did a google search, some on-line company said it was a good unit for new construction. Do you recommend this model or did I make a mistake and buy a base unit. My old York model was 2.5 tons and a 6 or 8 SEER; the Ruud is 2 tons for a 1432 sq. ft. house.
P.S. I was suppose to get an Amana 10 Seer unit, but another salesman sold it on me. As a result, my salesman sold me the Ruud unit for the same price.
