    Decisions...Help me decide

    I live in Phoenix. We have a packaged heat pump on the roof and needs to
    be replaced. I've been quoted a Trane unit and a Carrier unit.

    Carrier - 50XT0603TP with Infinity control. 14.5 SEER/11.0 EER/8.0 HSPF
    Trane - XL16C with TCONT802. 15.2 SEER/11.5 EER/8.6 HSPF

    Which system should I get?

    Help!

    Which has the better BTU out put at your lower heating temps.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    You can find the ratings and BTUs Here

    Not the easiest site to use.

    Or, you can ask the contractors for the heating BTU output of those units at 17°F.

    The Trane is 55K of heat. Carrier is 56K. The Infinity control offers more bells & whistles. But you get a hair more efficiency summer & winter from the Trane. Check out the dealers carefully! That's more important.
