    Question How good are Frigidaire Heat Pumps?

    I need to replace 3 units in a 4500sqft house. A 5 ton, 4 ton and 3 ton. Buying Frigidaire units over Carrier, Trane or Amana will save me around $10k on the initial cost. Any experience or feedback on the quality of Frigidaire heat pumps?

    Is a very desirable and good quality unit. Good warranty.
    More important is how the change out is performed.
    I have used them with no regrets.

    I put a Grandaire( same as Frigidarie, both made by Nordyne) in my house and havent looked back. Easy to get parts for and as already stated, good warrantys.
    Poor planning on your part doesn’t necessarily constitute an emergency on my part.

    Putting the quality of Frigidaire heat pumps aside for the moment, 12 tons (3 systems) for 4500 sq ft sounds oversized. I suggest you request written heat/cool load calculations and review very carefully.

    My opinion.

    Frigidaire

    I quarantee you that the $12,000.00 difference includes something different other than equipment costs! There is not that kind of difference of price between comparable model brands. I would question whether the installations will be the same quality. Go see & get references from other people that have had your contractor install the units for.

    Dash, I can assure you that we agree more than you think, except that I am a bit more GE/Trane washed than you! LOL
