I would have preferred the Rheem modulating furnace, but based on the QUALITY of the local installers, I’ll be going with either the York Affinity modulating or the Bryant/Carrier Evolution/Infinity 3 stage.
I live in a 2-story 2500 SF house with a 1250 SF basement in South-western, Ontario, built in 1984.
Total Heating BTU/h is 53,000
Total Cooling BTU/h is 37,000
Pricing is all very similar, I would like to make a choice based on comfort, proper sizing, and quality. I’d be interested in your thoughts as to:
a) Which unit you would prefer in your home, the York or Bryant/Carrier?
b) Would you choose the 60,000 BTU or the 80,000 BTU model?
c) Would you choose a 2 stage 3 ton 17-18 SEER A/C, or a 2.5 ton 15 SEER A/C ?
Thanks for all your help, I’ve been reading your posts for months and your posts have already helped take a lot of guesswork out of a big investment!!
