I am looking to have installed one of the two systems below and wondering how much difference there is in the two systems. They are both 3 Ton systems. I am told that American Standard and Trane are the same units except for the covers.
Are there different models of the American Standard Heritage 15 HP?
Are there different models of the Trane XL15i HP?
I live in Southeastern Kentucky. The contractors have recommended a 15 KW heat strip. Would a 7/12 heat strip be better?
What thermostat would be better for these units?
American Standard- Outdoor Unit 4A6H5036G1
Air Handler AM7AOC36H31
Trane- Outdoor Unit 4TWX5036 B1000A
Air Handler TAM7AOC36H31SB
I would really appreciate any information you can help me with. Thanks.
