    Payne,meh.
    Should cost less than Goodman. Don't know about the warranty though. If it would even have one.

    Yes, warranty could be an issue with the mismatch. Payne is pretty similar to the base model Carriers. The ones I've seen appear to be better from what they were in the past, so not bad units, but there is better (construction wise). If cost is an issue and limiting you from putting in a better matching unit, then I would look at Payne or Goodman. That way, in time, you'll be able to replace everything with a matching setup.

    Least expensive (cheapest) will probably be a Nordyne product.

    Still, how do I find out if the attic unit has a TXV?

    Well, one of two ways. Go up and look yourself, or ask your tech.
    I'll bet the next question is, what does it look like?
    Maybe someone has a picture they could post, or maybe go to the Sporlan, or whoever these days, web site. I know exactly what it looks like but, would have a hard time explaining.

    I think Ryan said it's an obsolete coil now so, I don't know if he could even pull up a picture.

    Easy, Is there a bulb strapped to the suction line OUTSIDE the airhandler?

    the Trane xb is the least expensive Trane model and i do believe can be installed with the correct size orfice that 054 coil should be fine for a 4 ton

    if it had a txv you would probably see some small little tubes were the lines go in the coil

    Not all are on the outside.

    I think this coil required the field installation of a TXV, so probably on the outside in this case. My understanding is that the new 2TXFH coil has the coil factory installed.

    Thank you everyone for your help, the attic unit does have a TXV and I have someone coming today to install the outside condenser. You have all been a great help. Thank you again.

    Not that it matters much but, what brand did you go with?
