Looking to install a new c/a system in our house and got four quotes. Narrowed it down to two based on cost. I'm trying to get an idea about reliability, efficiency, etc. I've read a lot of the posts here and know that most of the quality of a system is in the installer, but I'm trying to get an idea of the quality of the equipment. Also, any suggestions would be welcome as well. I'm in the Northeast, and the heating is a separate gas baseboard system. The house is a ranch, the c/a will be used for the main floor which is about 1600 sq ft.
The systems quoted are:
Bryant 3 ton 15 SEER model 165ANA036 R410-A with a Bryant FV4?003 a/h
Amana 2 1/2 ton 14 SEER model ASX14030 with an Amana/Goodman AEPF3036 a/h
Any thoughts are most appreciated. TIA
