Hey everyone, thanks for your help on my previous post.
Unfortunately, things got a little more complicated since then.
After deciding to go with the Lennox SLP98 from the contractor who gave us a GREAT price (Contractor 1), he got two huge jobs and told me he wouldn't be able to help us anymore.
Luckily, we just got a quote from a contractor (Contractor 2) who told us that they price-match with apples-to-apples equipment. Their initial quote was pretty high, but since they told us they price-match, we figured they would keep to their policy and match Contractor 1's price on the same equipment.
To my dismay, Contractor 2 comes back after reviewing Contractor 1's estimate and says that they are not able to match the price and in fact can not go any lower on the Lennox SLP98. However, they did offer to match the price on a Goodman GMVC95.
So my questions are these: How does Goodman and Lennox compare overall? And how does the Lennox SLP98 compare with the GMVC95?
