Am looking to replace my 12 year old York 10 seer 2 ton heat pump and air handler. Live in a 1200 sq ft 2 story condo (2nd and 3rd floor) near Annapolis, MD.
Everyone is quoting me a variable speed air handler but am not sure I should go with this or not.
Was originally looking for a 14 Seer 2 ton Trane heat pump and air handler.
Have had 2 quotes so far.
One is for a 15 or 16 Seer Trane heat pump and air handler
The 2nd is a quote on a 15 or 16 Nutone heat pump and air handler.
Both have 10 year parts and labor warranties but the 16 seer Nutone is less cost than the Trane.
Couple of questions.
1. Do I go with the variable speed handler or not?
2. Do I really need a 16 seer vs a 14 or 15.
3. Any comments on the Nutone?
This is my first time replacing any heating systems and the more I read the more confused I get and you guys seem to be the best source of reliable info!
Thanks for any help!
