After changing my gas furnace to a heat pump in our new build, I heard (via this site) there were more efficient unit available than the 13 SEER unit I was being offered.
I enquired about an upgrade prior to the unit going in.
got an email back from the builders, with a forwarded email from their HVAC contractor, we decided to opt for this system.
FVM4X60 Air handler, H4H460GKB Heat pump - the price in lieu of the current heat pump installation was additional $$$$ (price charged to the builder).
We said yes, go ahead - the builder then emailed us saying the actual price was TWICE, because the $$$$ did not include the heat pump, bigger ducting and a larger plug???
Now when i spoke with the HVAC guys, they said our existing spec heat pump duct was big enough, why would that change, and why does a more efficient unit need a bigger outlet?? Plus the price they supplied to the builder clearly states it includes a heat pump.
looking at the prices quotes, what do you guys think? Is my builder trying to get $$$$ for doing nothing? Or have i missed something????
