Folks: Ii've been reading this Forum and have some related questions.
I want to replace a complete 5T heat pump system with either a Trane XL14i (4TWX4060B) or an A.S. Heritage 14 (4A6H4060). Both are R410. I believe them to be the same unit - true?
I have asked 3 dealers for bids:
- A trane dealer told me that his distributor said the XL14i was replaced by the XR14. That sounds untrue since the XR has different specs and looks like a lower end system. (I just got the XL14i data from the Trane site.)
- An A.S. dealer is trying to sell me a 4A6B3060 plus 4TEC3F60. I can't find what this is at the AS site.
All are pushing variable speed AH at around $500 extra.
My main goal is reliability and long manufacturer warranty on all parts. (We currently have 3 builder's special Carrier's which have had short and expensive Evap. coil life.)
Any advice? Thanks
