I could really use some A/C system advice because I am about to replace my entire system-except existing 8 yr. old Trane furnace/blower-and my knowledge on this subject is fairly limited. Any advice or suggestions are GREATLY appreciated.
I have a 2200sq. ft. 3/2 home with a fair amount of shade in the Houston, TX area. I have decided to go with a 14 seer Trane unit and all new R8 ductwork. I was just able to find out the model # is 4TTR 4048-using 410 (I think). I have been told that a 4 ton unit is all I need and was hoping if someone could tell me:
1. Does a 4 ton unit sound right?
2. Is that Trane model good?
3. Does this qualify for a tax credit/rebate?
Also, they suggested I have them install an Aprilaire 2410 filter system. We do have a dust probem and my wife has allergies so I was wondering if this was a good idea?
Thanks to anyone kind enough to provide some insight into this matter.
