    My Advice is that you should not take anyones advice on brand from this forum. the majority of the people inhere that are qualified also sell thebrand they support. do research locally as the installer is as important as brand. I sell Trane so i say go with Trane.

    Good advice right to the end. Well, just short of the end

    Another thing to consider in brand is how well the brand your contractor wants to install is supported locally. If a brand of equipment is not locally supported to the contractor, the contractor is automatically at a disadvantage to support that brand in a consumers home.

    The optional TXV must be installed to get 15 SEER (12.5 EER) from the GSH14 heat pump.

    Got me with a double entendre too, depending on which orifice you are referring to

    For condensing units and heat pumps, I am fine with fixed metering as long application factors are conducive. If a system is going to be operated in cooling mode at lower then 70 degree outdoor temps on over 13 SEER systems, I prefer to see txv metering.

    For this particular set up there are only a few ratings that don't require a txv and most of them are for horizontal slab coils. I guess that rating with fixed orifice might give some edge on systems that are super tightly bid. Other then that, I see no reason to rate without the txv.
