We're almost set to begin finishing our basement and one thing I'm struggling with is the hvac unit.
We have about 1,200 sq ft to finish and we do want a separate unit downstairs mainly so it's not so cold in the winter.
We have a GC for the basement build, but I got a few separate quotes for hvac.
Everyone is saying 1.5 ton heat pump for the space. Quotes are about $ for trane 14 seer unit.
I really don't want to pay $ for a unit that won't be used that much (in atlanta) if there is an alternative.
How bad of an idea is it for me to buy the system myself online and then pay to have it installed? I've found multiple places online that have budget line rheem heat pump systems for under $ .
One person told me installation should run around $ . Is that in the ball park?
Any other major problems I need to consider? As long as its professionally installed, the dealers say I can send in the paperwork and the warranty is good.
