Just had the local gas company out to give me a quote for a new air conditioner and furnance. They recommended carrier. For the furnance the infinity 96 and performance series for the air conditioner. I want an electronic air filter for home, and they recommended honeywell. A couple of questions i want to validate:
1. They said heat pumps are a bad option in Minneapolis, MN and never pay off - i was looking at getting one. I thought it would work in spring/fall and in the heart of winter I'd use the furnance.
2. They recommened the Honeywell electronic air filter as he said Carrier gets the electronic air filters from Honeywell, so i'll be getting the same technology for a little cheaper.
3. I forgot to ask if the Honeywell filter is integrated with the Iinfinity thermostat.
4. He said an infinity air conditioner is not needed in MN ( I was interested in the 2-stage vs 1 stage). Do the above statemens appear avlid? The price and everything I thought was fair, but I still plan on talking with a few other carrier installers.
I apologize in adavance if I missed these questions in previous posts.
