I suggest asking your dealer if he carries the Amana 2 speed unit. You'll be happier with it than the goodman single speed. The two speed will provide much better humidity control (better comfort) and should save money as the unit will run on low speed most of the time.
Thanks Alex-checked out the amana site and they have dif system + goodman. The ASX18 on a 3 ton can give you a 19 seer with a big FPL rebate which on all units brings the price to about 3% to the lower seer units. How are the amana units price dif to goodman? Like the 2 stage monitering system-butt still like KISS- only 1 bell.
Those are the standards that were put out about a month ago, since then, I have heard there has been some confusing statements made by the IRS. I stll haven't read up on it like I should, but I will. I'm sure there are plenty of people on here that will chime in.
I own my own small business and people pay me for my expertise and I will gladly pay a man for his-that is why I'm here to know what to expect from a professional havc company and will gladly pay a fair price (not the cheapest) for his services.
Since the last post in this thread was nearly three years ago, I'm wondering if your previous opinions still hold. I'm considering the following options:
Rheem 16 SEER 5 ton two stage
Goodman 16 SEER 5 ton two stage
I just put a Thermalzone (re-badged Rheem) in my own house. Great unit IMHO. I'd verify you really need 5 tons of A/C and that you have the ductwork to get the 2,000 CFM of air through the system. Very few residential installations have enough ductwork to do the job properly.
