    I did get other quotes. Next best was for a carrier comfort system, but about $ more and they were using old lines. Trane/Armstrong system would include replacement of the existing lines, total job $ vs. $ for the carrier. My research seems to show the trane as better stuff, but just concerned now that they are going with the armstrong air handler.

    I called armstrong and was told that the mismatched system may invalidate the armstrong warranty. Is the armstrong equipment equal in quality to trane and carrier?

    This started out as all Trane and i was kind of sold on Trane being better quality. A few reviews I saw online said Armstrong was a lower quality unit. What are your thoughts on quality of Armstrong vs Trane?

    For what it's worth, I never mix heat pump systems.
    I have no problems with the systems operations.
    I never have problems with warranties.
    I never get those "maybe if it wasn't mix matched it would work better or cheaper to operate" questions.
    The actual refrigerant capacities are sometimes very different in some brands which can cause problems.
