    Recommend Your Favorite (The Best) Coil

    I asked a similar question in another thread, but the thread topic wasn't right so I had a lot of good responses, just not on the topic I was looking for!

    I am replacing my coil. I want the best one possible. I have read about brands (Carrier, Trane, American Standard) and material (Stainless Steel, Copper, Copper+Tin). What is the best coil you have run into? Very open-ended, I know, but we all have different reasons for liking things.

    Also what is the best material? Stainless or Copper+Tin (seems Copper alone is problematic)?

    TIA.

    I've only seen s.s. in laboratory equipment. The tin plated copper or all aluminum is supposed to prevent the formicary corrosion problem.

    I was recommended this in another thread, but I didn't get any good info. Mainly dimensions and installation info.

    Do you have a link that describes models and whatnot?

    Thanks.

    They have a MicroBlue coated fins for better water drainage, I don't know if it prevents formicary corrosion, that is the big problem now. I would like to hear from someone who has been using them. http://www.yorkupg.com/NewCatalog.asp?t=r&id=4
