Well here is the story :
I have a 11 year old 3.5 ton Bryant package heat pump with 15 kw heat strips (12 seer) . I contracted my house being built and it is very well insulated . The unit is not given me any trouble but it is a "LOUD" unit and has been from day1 .
I would really like to upgrade to a American Standard 4wcz6048 4 ton 16 seer package unit with 15 kw strips , but they are expsenvie .
Very Quiet Unit
Variable speed motors (better comfort )
$1500 dollar tax credit which will help me re-coup some of my investment .
Unit is working fine why spend the extra money
How much money can I save per month going from a 12 seer to 16 seer dual stage compressor with variable speed ?
What is the average life span of a heat pump ? I keep reading 12-15 years .
Any comments are welcome , please give me some feedback .
