My mother recently asked me to call a few contractors and get quotes for the installation of a central air system into her home. It's a small one floor 1100sqft ranch. My father passed away this year and she wants to keep the windows locked at night through the summer and despises window based units.
She used a contractor that had installed a couple of systems for other people I know and who had no complaints. We know nothing about these systems other than the end result being cool dry air. They installed a Goodman system (i don't know the tonnage) and it's rated a 13seer. My mother was reading the energy sticker and got worried since this was on the lower end of the efficiency scale.
My question is this...is the unit going to handle the light duty use this system will get in the northeast in a home with only person living there? as well, leaving bia's aside like chevy vs ford. Is Goodman an ok unit. I know it may not be the best, but I'm hoping it will do the job.
