    Lennox Vs Trane vs york

    Looking at a Package for replacing old system.

    14-16 seer / 8 hspf heat pump
    95%- propane furnace

    is there anything I should stay away from and what questions should I ask the contractor when they are evaluating the house.

    what area of country do you live?

    what is electric rate?

    if going dual fuel route, then you need a HP that has a high HSPF(8 is poor) as the HP will provide a major amount of your heating needs.

    Also, you will want a backup furnace with var spd blower.

    IMO

    Is there a brand to avoid I know the Top group
    Trane, York, carrier, Lennox are all going to have good systems.

    is one better then the other on noise, repair...

    you are speaking of a split system, not a package unit-correct?

    Trane/AmStd and Carrier Infinity/Bryant Evolution are solid choices.

    just don't care for the Lennox pumps.

    IMO

    Split system -- Mis-use of term Package

    Why not Lennox??

    Problems or just not your favorite.

    Lennox HP's are just as good as anything else out there.... Pick the contractor that you feel will be the most honest and do the best work.
