As I dig deeper into the air conditioning world I have been told many times that brand name should not be the deciding factor in choosing a contractor. With that, I have finally settled on a contractor that will be installing a 3TON RHEEM SUPER QUIET 80 FURNACE with a 3 TON DUCANE OUTSIDE CONDENSER UNIT. The contractor says to go with the DUCANE because it is a smaller footprint outside since we live in a condo complex.

Question: As long as the equipment is the same size and effecency (3TON, 13 SEER ), there shouldn't be any issues with warranties or the function of the two different brands right??????????

AND........

Are the 2 condensing units (RHEEM and DUCANE) comparable?
