We just purchased a home that needs a new h/a system. We have been pitched a Heil DLX95 series 95% AFUE. This has a 5 ton blower and a lifetime heat exchange 10 yr parts 1 yr labor warrantee.
Additionally, the bid included a Heil Heat Pump 12+ SEER 4 ton split system w/ matched Hi eff A-coil. The heat pump has a 5 year parts; 10 year compressor limited warranty. The spec sheet indicates it comes charged with R-22. Is this a concern since it is being phased out?
Also, is a heat pump even recommended in a colder climate like Iowa? I have heard several people say they don't like their heat pumps because they blow cold air and we live too far north to really benefit from it. Thoughts?
I recognize that most pros on the site say that the quality of installation is far more important than the actual unit, but I would appreciate your thoughts on the above described system as far as quality, reliability, warranty etc. Thank you in advance for your time.
