Well, I'm getting bids on a new HP system. Currently have a 20 year old 3 ton Heil 10 seer. Some have said:
Option #1: single stage compressor with a standard Air Handler
Option #2: single stage compressor with VS AirHandler
Option #3: 2 stage compressor with VS air handler.
I think option #3 is overkill for my application (VA) and too expensive. Someone else said unless you get a 2 stage compressor the VS air handler doesn't work to it's full capacity so it's a waste of money. I'm just starting my HP replacement process and every contractor has a different sotry/theory. This may just be my first post of questions so please bear with me. Any opinions? Thanks
