    CARRIER FV4BNF002 OR FV4ANF003

    What the difference between the FV4BNF002 & FV4ANF003

    for the "A" series the quote was a lot cheaper compared to another company quoting the B series. My understanding is b in the newer series.

    The heat pump it's matched with is the same for both quotes. 25HPA536A003 The Carrier performance heat pump. The difference is 2.5k in thw quotes. Is it basically labor cost or will is an A series that cheaper?

    Those Carrier model numbers can be tricky.

    The heat pump condenser has a model# 25HPA536A30 and 25HPA536A31.

    Both of these Performance 15 condensers are rated with the FV4BNF002 and that combo is 34,600 btu cooling, 12.5 EER, 15 SEER, 33,200 btu heating at 47F, 7.8 HSPF.

    That 7.8 HSPF is very weak. 9 is excellent. 8.5 is required for the Fed Tax Credit.

    There is no AHRI rated match for the FV4ANF003 (must be a misprint). There is a match with the FV4BNF003 or FV4CNF003.

    If the contractor disagrees that there is no match with the FV4ANF003, have him supply the AHRI Reference#.

    Good luck.

    FV4BNF002 & FV4ANF003

    The 003 is a larger indoor coil.

    There is no FV4"A",they are B's,likely a mistake as other air handler models, have an A in that position of the number.

    Price's are not allowed here,please remove.The difference would not be very much between an 002 and an 003.

    The 25HPA536"A"003 will not met the minimum to get the federal tax credit of up to $1500.00,you'll need a 25HPA536"H"003.

    There are additional coils/air handlers that can get 8.5 HSPF with that condenser and obtain the $1500 Fed Tax Credit.

    Examples:
    A30 and A31 condenser matches with FV4BNB006.
    H30 and H31 condensers also have matches with smaller air handlers that meet the Tax Credit requirements.

    Your contractor needs to provide additional matches for you.

    Good luck.

    I might be wrong, but my guess is he meant to say FY4A - this unit has a standard fan motor - which would make it cheaper. The FV4B has a variable speed fan which would make it more expensive.

    Possibly, but the FY4A has a different model number system. So it would not be FY4ANF003; it would be FY4ANF036 for example. More than likely the dealer just listed the "A" revision instead of the newer "B" revision.
