Please feel free to critique. I'm posting for the first time and I've read the forum guidelines, so I'm doing my best to respect the rules and ask the right questions.
I reside in an 18 year old building with the original Magic-Pak unit. The unit is housed in a closet on the balcony. What information do I need as I assess alternatives for its replacement? Does anyone have experience and/or ideas of replacement units? Certainly, I can get another Magic-Pak, though neighbors have indicated that the replacement unit from Armstrong is not as efficient nor cost-effective as current models. I also don't know what's involved in fitting another model that might be smaller than the current wall cut-out dimensions.
Really, any advice on what information I need, what options I have, and what I should or shouldn't do are greatly appreciated. I have called Armstrong, who gave me a list of local distributors, and called the dealers the distributor recommends. I haven't received a response yet to my voicemail messages.
Thanks in advance. Also, if you have any resources (like Consumer Reports) that helps navigate this process, I'm very open to doing research and getting educated.
