Purchasing a Lennox 14 HPX Heat Pump
I would like some verification on a price and a rating.
A local dealer tells me that the a 3 ton 14HPX-036-230* CBX27UH-036-230+TDR has the following ratings 12.50EER 15.00 SEER & 8.50HSPF and will qualify for the new Tax credit. He's asking $ installed. I'm replacing a 15 year old Janitrol Unit.
I was surprised that this lower end unit met those specs for that price.
Need a little verification before signing on the dotted line.

His numbers are correct. The 14hpx is a low end, the cbx27 is not.
Those numbers look correct for zone IV.

My contractor buys the 14HPX-036-230* & CBX27UH in large quantities and has real good pricing, but is this too low end of a HP and is there a history of problems.
I don't want to be penny wise and pound foolish...
Thanks for the advice thus far
Sounds like one size fits all.
The way he said it does.

If it were me, I'd look into at least the Elite XP14, if nothing else for better coil protection as well as the compressor cover and low/high pressure switches. It too would qualify with that air handler, with higher HSPF. Also if you use the variable speed CBX32MV-048 it will also qualify with even better ratings.
