I recently built a 2500sq ft. shop and have finished out 1000sq. ft. that will need to be heated/cooled. While looking at all the different manufactures out there all the information & reviews are overwhelming. I know that all manufactures get good and bad reviews, some more so than others and that some of the poor reviews can be attributed to poor installation.
I felt the need to post here to find out what some of the real world installers have to say. I'm looking for a budget minded system that should give me years of trouble free service with correct installation and properly maintianed. I don't want to go bottom of the barrel but I'm not looking to go crazy either. I will probably stay 13 seer and it will need to be an R410 unit.
I'm located in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and would also be interested in hearing suggestions on installers. I would like to find someone that's going to shoot me straight and not give me the run around.
