I'm getting quotes on replacement for my upstairs system (walk up attic)
Current is a 1996 - Trane XE100/XE78 2.5-Ton
I got the quote back on a Trane and Goodman systems. I was a little surprised when they were only 80% units. Here's what he said:
Hadn't heard that one? I understand the water vapor but I would think the water pan would catch any spill over. We normaly don't have many weeks of below 32 in central NC either.I did not quote any 90% efficient furnaces because they produce water when they heat, and there is a possibility the drain line could freeze and cause water damage to the ceiling below.
Goodman GME80704BX - 80% - 2 stage
CHPF2430B6 - GSC13
(will field install a TXV)
Trane TUD1B060A9361A (XT80)
I'm thinking of having him quote the 14 or 15 Seer units along with a 90% efficient units.
