With all things being equal, would you choose a Trane 16 seer AC unit or a Carrier 16 seer unit.
The situation is, the dealer I want to use carries both Trane and Carrier. I am buying two split systems, one 4 ton and one 3 ton. They have quoted me systems from Trane and Carrier with the same parameters (16 seer, one stage, same tonage....) The quote for the trane systems is $$ more than the Carrier systems total cost. ($$ vs $$). The Trane units are XR15's and the Carriers are Performance 16's.
So, given that the installation will be done by the same company, and the specs are the same on the two brands, is there any reason I should not go with the cheaper Carrier bid? If it matters, I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
Sorry if this is a elementary question, but I've never purchased an AC unit before.
