Hi, I'm new here. Worked in the industry for a few years in the early 1980's, mostly residential, some commercial & industrial (company was a Trane dealer). Recently laid off from my job as an Ind. Maint. Mechanic (last 17 years.)
Anyway, My 30+ year old GE Weathertron 4 ton has given up the ghost for good. I know we always recommended Trane, (Carrier or Lennox if they were not buying from us, lol) back in the 80's.
Price is certainly a concern, being unemployed. I have friends still in the industry that will help with the changeout, but the brands available to me wholesale are of course limited.
I am considering the Goodman GPH15M (410-A) http://tinyurl.com/ypyp7a
and GPH13M (R22). http://tinyurl.com/2cggqt
Not a huge difference in costs, is it time to go with 410 or get 22 while you still can? I have read that Goodman has a better reputation than it use to and quality has improved. If you don't think so, any other all electric package unit brands or models you can recommend? (bearing in mind that even though I'm doing the changeout myself, I can't break the bank on unit cost either)
Thank you in advance for any input, and GREAT Forum here!
