I need to replace my outside condensor unit and inside coils. 3 ton unit , xv90 furnace. I plan to keep the XV90 furnace section as it is still in great shape.

I have one shop pushing the XL16i . Another shop is recommending the XR16 . His reasoning is 1- the XR16 has a higher seer rating than the XL16i , and 2 - the cost would be less for similar performance.

Tech opinions?
